#3873 of 5279 1993 Toyota camry doesn't doesnt start starter problem
Sep 03, 2005 (10:25 am)
Sorry, Title is little wierd, that is just make things easy for google searchers.
Ya, actuallly, my 1993 Toyota camry starts most of the times but sometimes it doesn't. I heard long press is the solution but not for me. What happens when i start sometimes is, when the key reaches the extreme end, a 'TAK' sound comes and thats it, feels like the message is not being passed to the engine. Can anyone guess whats happening ?

That is a common problem in our beloved Camrys. Have your starter contacts replaced. I was quoted $60 for a fix on an 89 4 cylinder, so it should not cost much. If you can't fix it now, next time it does it just turn the key to "start" several times RAPIDLY. That usually helps my car crank right up somehow. Hope this helps.

Hey pal Im having the SAME exact problem your having. I was actually surfing the net trying to see if my 1996 Camry LE was the only car that had this problem, but then I found your post. You hit the problem that i have RIGHT on the dot. At first I thought i was experienceing a belt problem, it did sound like the noise was coming from it. I purchased some belt lubrication but that didnt work, i then realized that it was NOT my belt. The noise im experiencing is loudest exactly as you said, right when i start the car. But it does tend to silence itself once the car is running for about 10 mimnutes. I was wondering if you had fixed the problem your having?? Was it the water pump or was it something else??
#3876 of 5279 Ticking sound from front right wheel

My 99 LE 4cyl Camry has a ticking sound coming from the front right wheel. Ticking is faster as car is faster. 57,000 miles. Front brake pads replaced about 10,000 miles ago. There are no pebbles or nail heads in the tire. All ideas are appreciated. Phils.

I found the turn signal pace and click is much faster than the regular speed in my 97 Camry. Anybody knows how to repair it? Many thanks!

Have you checked to see if all lights are working properly such as taillights, headlights, blinkers in the front and back, etc? Many times, cars will blink the lights faster so that you know one of the lights is burned out. Don't forget to check the parking lights too.

It could simply be your wheel cover. (I assume you have steel wheels with the plastic covers.) Try removing it and see if the noise goes away. If so, then you can just put it back on as tight as possible and hope for the best.

The faster clicking would mean only a turn signal bulb is out on that side of the car. But if the bulb still works (dimly), then the contacts in the front turn signal bulb may not be secure enough. I've explained how to clean/tighten the contacts before in this board. Just search under my user name.
