Hi everyone - new & need help already

Recommended Posts

I’ve just bought my daughter a 2009 Yaris TR automatic. 
she’s driven it for 3 days fine but after going for a short trip yesterday she parked up, then decided to park a little better and then it wouldn’t start and hasn’t since. 
 

The car has dash lights on and lights/ wipers etc all work but there’s no sound when turning ignition over - nothing at all. 

I replaced the Battery this morning but still nothing. Has anybody had a similar fault?

Popped a main fuse ? Tried a spare key ? Have you tried to jump start it ?

I'm really not familiar with the transmission in this. 

How about because it hasn't got 'Park' properly selected on the transmission?

Thanks for the replies.

It’s got N on the dash so I’m guessing it’s not stuck in gear. 
it won’t jump but I haven’t checked fuses yet. Next job I guess if I can find which are which.

Move it into park and then try to start it.

There’s no park. Looks like Neutral is also park.

i managed to get it into reverse then neutral and it started. 

Gonna take it for a run now and see how we go. I’ll update tomorrow.

thanks again

The second generation Yaris had the Multi Mode Transmission, not the CVT. Moved to the Yaris club.

Faulty starter solenoid perhaps?
