Hey all. This car is driving me crazy so I figured i'd drop a line, see if I can get some help. Anyhoo
1993 celica. High mileage but the maintenence has been performed.
Car will not start. It will be running great for a few days, but then I will go out to start it, and I will get nothing. Just a click.
I noticed then at that point by accident after taking the key out, that even with the key out, I can still use my power windows and sunroof. Just not the radio or horn.
Now, up until may, the car did have an aftermarket alarm system, some crime stopper model. The anti theft activated several times, killing the car. The kill switches didnt work, so I just ripped out the crime stopper box. Car was running fine. Until now : ) lol
Now when I turn the key, there is a clicking noise coming from the lower left hand panel. The clicking noise is coming from a a black plug marked relay isd m4-s 12 v. It was getting warm when I left the key. Sometimes if I wiggle the wires the car starts but, at this point I am at my wits end. The starters good. The batterys good (both tested). I think this antitheft is somehow still in there and stopping my car from starting. Any ideas?
i appreciate your help if you've read through this thanks
