2001 Toyota Camry 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 145000 miles
My Toyota is occasionally blowing the 5 amp starter fuses. I 'm using a jumper wire from the starter to the positive battery terminal to start the car. I've replaced the starter, solenoid, relay and ignition switch. I replaced the solenoid first, because the starter began to spin occasionally when starting. The car never blew a fuse before this. The other replacements followed trying to eliminate the blown fuse problem. The car runs fine and all other accessories work. I assume there is a short circuit in the system, but it doesn't do it all the time. After replacing each of the parts, the car started fine and I thought the problem was solved. I've backtracked my work looking for problems I may have created without success. Any answers or suggestions would be apreciated.
have the same problem?
