my battery is fully charged.I had the car when it was running tested at autozone(the starter and ignition test) and the person who ran the test informed me that everything was working fine.
several weeks later, my car just wouldn't start. My roomate suggested to try jumping it. So we did. And it started.
Several days later, the car was just dead again. I put the key in, all the dash lights come on, but as soon as I turn the key it just goes click, and all my dash lights go off, I lose all power.
So we tried to jump it again. We sat there for about a half hour letting the battery get a charge, thinking it was dead. Tried to start it and alls I was hearing was just a very fast clicking sound, like the car wanted to turn over but it just didnt have enough juice to do so.
for shits and giggles I had the battery tested again, battery was still good. My car has been sitting in the same parking spot at my apartment and im very scared some ass hat is gonna tow it but thats another matter.
i dont know what else to do.
I know there was an anti theft system in it when I purchased the car from some dude. That was causing the car to not start sometimes. But after I unplugged the anti theft, it ran fine for a while. Now something is just draining my power some where and I cant get it to start.
in the lower left hand kick panel, in the fuses, there is a square black plug which says relay on it. When I turn the key I would get like a clicking or a popping sound from it.
i know nothing about wiring.I've downloaded every wiring diagram on 93 celicas that I can get my hands on. Im also thinking maybe the ignition switch? But I think the bottom line is the person who installed the anti theft didnt know what the hell he was doing and seriously messed up my wiring.
any ideas? Id appreciate some feed back. If you read through this whole thing? I appreciate it even more. Just trying to be as descriptive as I can
have the same problem?
