Car starts then immediately dies 95 camry le

Asked by Jun 20, 2017 at 09:49 AM about the 1995 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Drove it home fine one day n next morning wouldn't start
but was cranking continuously and I listened for fuel
pump n ain't here it so I replaced the relay to see if it was
that but nothing so I jus replaced the fuel pump and now I
hear it loud and clear and since it seems as if it turns off
right wen I let go of the key made me think it had same
problem as my jeep so I changed the ignition key lock
cylinder and distributor cap is new didn't test it but figured
if spark plugs getn spark its ok and I changed all spark
plugs although they were gettin spark now it Cranks and
starts but turns off immediately after started but
everything electrical still works as normally would
checked battery at oriellys it's good so I was thinking
alternator next so I got a friend to come over n I jumped
the car and the first time it started and ran for like 3/4
seconds then shut off (with cables still on) then it went
back to starting then immediately shutting off after that
like before so my next step was gonna be to take out
alternator and get it tested at oriellys and also I noticed
when I turn the key to acc or on and test all electrical
components to see if anything was draining unnoticed
when I turn on my headlights the clock inside the car goes
dim and I hear a wining/wiring noise like it's being drained
... any ideas?
