2007 Toyota camry wont start

Asked by May 12, 2016 at 03:10 PM about the 2007 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2007 Toyota camry will not start. When I turn
the key to on the radio doesn't come on,  the dash
doesn't come on, and only 3 of the signal lights on
the dash are on, however, the lights inside the cab
still work. Then when I try to turn the key nothing
happens, no clicking, no dash lights, nothing. I tried
putting my foot on the break and taking it out of
park and back really fast but I can't even get the
stick out of park. I've never had any problems with
it up until now. Im maybe thinking it's the battery,
but there is other wierd signs that im not sure
about. Thanks for your help!

Sounds like the battery...the lights you are seeing are probably the last things that will actually operate on what little juice it has. If you're not hearing at least a click when you turn the key, and definitely if nothing else works, you can bet its the battery.

Does your Camry have the Smart key? When you turn your key over to Start position what does it do?

Thank you jlane1820! 89yota, im not sure what a smart key is, but when I turn it to start position, only the check engine light and battery and oil light come on. Then when I try to ignite it nothing happens

You might consider trying a JUMP START. BE CAREFULL when jump starting these modern cars. Research how to perform this operating correctly. If a jump start works well....indeed...you probably have a dead battery. If that's the case....one must ask..."why did the battery die"?

Let's assume a vehicle WILL START with a correctly performed "jump start" Now we have to determine the root cause of this "dead battery'?? Could be the battery is just old and needs to be replaced. Could be a bad Alternator who's job it is to keep the battery charged. Could be a parasitic drain on the battery. Further testing and diagnosis is required. One would then use a Digital Volt Ohm meter to perform further testing. are you up to the task?
