WON'T START

1998 Toyota 4Runner

Electrical problem
1998 Toyota 4Runner 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 115000 miles

My lights were left on and the battery was drained. When we tried to jump start, it would do nothing. One thing I noticed was when we turned the lights on and turned the ignition, the light didn't dim so it seems there is no power getting to the starter. Help!

Hi rick poe,

Thank you for the donation.

The security system could have been triggered by the battery draining off.

Is the security key blinking?
Did you try to arm and disarm the alarm?

MERRY CHRISTMAS

We do not have the key that activates the alarm. Is there a way to manually turn off the alarm or is there a way to get a new alarm key from a Toyota dealer?

Hi rick poe,

Try if the following helps.

When system is set (armed), use one of the following methods to cancel system setting.
Unlock any door or liftgate using key: unlock all doors using remote keyless entry system. Insert key in ignition switch and turn to ON position. Alarm will automatically stop after one minute and will reset in about 2 seconds if all doors are closed.

MERRY CHRISTMAS
