Troubleshooting Toyota Celica T230 2000 – 2005 Car That Won’t Start or Hard to Start

Your Toyota Celica T230 2000 – 2005 car won’t start. You turn the key in the morning and nothing happens. It’s easy to get frustrated when the engine won’t turn over and it is certainly a bad way to begin the day. ? If you left your lights, radio, or some other electrical gizmo on after you parked the car, you know what the trouble is: Your battery is dead. Of course, there are other possible causes that your car won’t start.Below we outline the most common circumstances and tells you what action you can take to try to remedy each situation:

The Toyota Celica T230 2000 – 2005 car is silent when you turn the key in the ignition.Probably you have a dirty battery or bad connection cable(this is the thickest cable in your car’s electrical system and carries the most current). As such, it is also very susceptible to corrosion.

If your starter cable becomes corroded, it can be cleaned rather easily. Remove each end (one end is attached to the battery, and the other is attached to the starter) and clean the connections with a wire brush. Don’t forget to clean the battery posts at the same time.

Unfortunately, the same fate can befall your ground cables. A corroded or poorly connected ground cable can also prevent the car from starting. Clean ground wires and connections in the same manner.

The Toyota Celica T230 2000 – 2005 car makes a clicking noise but won’t start. This sound usually means a dead battery. A dead battery is the No. 1 cause of a no-start. If the battery is weak, but not totally dead, the starter may turn slowly. You will hear that slow, groaning RRR-RRR-RRR sound. As the voltage drops further, the sound may become a staccato K-K-K. When the battery voltage drops even further, there will be no sound. Even the telltale lights on the instrument panel may dim when you turn the key.

Usually, jump-starting the car will get you on the road, but be sure to find the cause of the dead battery or the situation will recur.

Make sure the clamps can’t easily slip off the battery terminals. Tightening loose clamps may get you on your way.

A weak battery should be replaced, but one that was accidentally drained can simply be recharged.

You can recharge your battery by driving your car around for an hour or so after the jumpstart. If you have one, you can use a battery charger instead.

If your battery is still good, you shouldn’t have another problem with the car starting unless there is another drain on the battery.
