09 Toyota Camry (standard) car won’t start unless pop started

Asked by Sep 29, 2019 at 02:05 PM about the 2009 Toyota Camry

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Drove my car home from work the other night and
turned it off then went to start it again and it
wouldn’t start. Battery isn’t the issue. Engine won’t
even turn over, my lights turn on and all but it won’t
crank over. We got it to pop start and drove it about
30 miles and my car started to lose power. My
lights shut off my radio shut off and car started
dying while driving it. We checked the terminals and
they were tight so that’s not the problem either. Any
suggestions are much appreciated!!

this sounds like no charge from the alternator to the battery. was the battery still charged fully when you got home? what does pop start mean? Jump started or clutch vehicle push start?
