1991 Toyota Camry; 2000 CC A/T, 4 cyl
In the hot summer months my car has a weird problem.
Sometimes when I drive around town doing errands and stop to shop, the car will not start when I turn the key. I turn the key and nothing happens. No click, no starter turn, nothing!
The battery is new, alternator is new, starter is about 2 years old.
It is an intermittent problem. After the car cools down, the car starts like it is showroom new! I thought it might be the igniter so I picked up one at a junk yard. I kept the old one in the trunk. Two weeks ago it happened again. I swapped out igniters and car started. Today in 90 degree heat it happened again. I swapped out igniters and this time, no go. However, after 20 minutes the car started right up. When I drove it home, turned off the engine and then turned the key to start the car, gues what happened? The car started right up. I am so confused. Please help me solve this problem.
