Asked by Jul 01, 2017 at 12:20 AM about the 1998 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The car started and ran for about 2-3 minutes then died.
We tried starting it back and it won't make a noise. Tried
starting it in neutral and still no noise at all. What could it
be?

Check the battery to be good and all connections to it,if these are good you may have a bad starter.

Starter is your issue then,low voltage from the battery you replaced caused damage to the starter.

Is there a way to get it started long enough to get to the parts store?

Adam try to bump starter with hammer if you can while someone turns key,this will some times work but is not a fix for it ,it will more than likely have to be replaced but may get it started for now.

Adam....did you ever resolve the issue with this vehicle?

Camry.. 2007 random over a year of turn key no crank full dash power ... rebuilt starter.. full of contact crap.. good then back to no crank wk later .. changed battery fine but went back to no crank after 4 days swapped relay with the blower fan and seem to clear it up... over two months now no problem.. perfect storm... weak starter pulled extra amps burning contacts in relay and forcing more strain on my older battery. Not easy to find hope it helps...
