Problem with 89 toyota camry some kind of wiring problem
I have a toyota camry 1989 v6 it wont start or click unless we jump start it.
We thought it was the alternator but it was good or the battery but its new.
The weird thing is when we jump start it and its working when you press on
the gas the battery light will go off its on if you dont. Also when you take the
ground jumper cable off of the toyota camry it imedietly shuts off. We thinks
its a wiring problem but i have no idea where to start. Thank you if you can
get a tester and check voltage at the batt should be at least 12v if not batt's no good ,, get it running and see what voltage you have at the batt.,should be 14v at least , if not the alt. is no good , I've dealt with a few crappy rebuilts
i have 2 batterys the one inside the car have a voltage of not even 1 it says .5 and the one in the back seat a spare says 3
Assuming you are using a DC Volt Meter...both your batteries are dead. A fully charged battery in most of today's vehicles should read 12.3-12.6 volts DC. Parts Stores sell "Jumper Boxes"....cheap. Sure do come in handy when you have a no Crank...thus...no Start.
