1988 Camry Le Electrical Prob


Recommended Posts

Okay guys/girls. Please help me out here I'm in serious need of fixing this problem.

I have a 1988 Camry LE , automatic with 237,000 miles or so on it. It runs great and everything but we have one serious problem. Every once in a while, it won't start. All you hear is clicking. Lights turn on, radio turns on, heat turns on, so the Battery is good. We have replaced the starter and cellanoid already. This is a very inconsistent problem. Fr instance, I just went outside and tried to start it, but last night when I wanted to go somewhere it wouldnt start. We have checked for shorts and have found one problem but it still has not fixed it. we are stumped.

do camrys have fusable links ?

i had a old dodge truck that had one of these things (it was a small wire leading from the battery). it had a loose conncection at the Battery post and would not start sometimes .. it took forever to figure out this little wire was the problem.

just an idea.

Agree with above. But also consider the starter solenoid in the engine compartment fuse box.[From key-reduces amperage through key switch.]

Check the battery: charge fully with charger. Turn lights on for 30 seconds. Turn off lights [to get rid of over charge]. The voltage should be 12.6. If lower, may have a weak cell or connector in Battery allowing lights but heavy load of Battery.

Brighten Battery and ground contacts. :thumbsup:
