Why wont my mr2 start?
so i was driving down the road about to change gears then all of a sudden my headlights
got really bright then blew, some sort of power surge. The car now wont even try to start,
we just replaced the alternator and checked all the fuses but it didnt change anything. If
anyone knows anything please help, i havent got to drive it in 2 months :(
are there any abnormal sounds when you trn the key
there's no noise at all
are your battery terminals clean and tight
I wonder if the alternator's voltage regulator or something else with the alternator went bad causing an overvoltage condition killing the headlamps. If the voltage was high enough there could be all kinds of issues. This may have damaged the battery also.
thats what i thought, the voltage regulator did go bad, got a new alternator and battery but the car still isnt starting, the starter is fine, thinking its gotta be a wiring problem,
Just ran into the same problem kind of. Car hasn't been started/ran in 3 years. Got it started...idling fine, went to go drive it and not even 30 seconds in, lost power. Jumped it a time or 2 but couldn't move but 10 feet without it cutting off. Put a new battery in because the old one was overflowing while charging, and had power and started to turn over, and all of the sudden no power at all. Checked all of the fuses and all are good. Whats the next step?
