>> Stay informed about: 1991 Toyota Camry- intermittent ignition problem
I have a 1991 Toyota Camry that run great with approx. 160K miles. Within
the last six months, I've experienced a severe intermitent ignition
problem. I turn the key, and all the dash lights work, headlights work,
horn blows, everything works, except there is dead silence as far as the
ignition is concerned. No cranking, no ticking, no noise whatsoever.
However, if I keep trying,it eventually will start. My mechanic suggested
that it could be the starter, so we replaced that a month ago. The problem
continues, however. Now he has suggested that it could be the 'neutral
switch', and has suggested we replce that. I have noticed if I play with
the shift lever a few times, it seems to start-up, however, I'm not sure
that has anything to do with it. A further hint, my back-up (or reverse)
lights don't work, however, my mechanic doesn't think it has anything to
do with the problem. Any ideas or suggestions would be deeply appreciated.
