Angry can't start my 87 turbo!!

Okay, this is offically driving my crazy. My car won't start. It cranks but as if the spark or somthing is being disallowed electronically, preventing the engine from firing up.

It all started when my brake light switch went bust and killed the battery. i replaced the switch and battery and now the car won't start. I've read all the threads about the security system and tried the driver side and passenger side locks to disarm it. I also tried the turn twice to the right from lock position and still nothing. Any other tricks would help greatly!!

whenever i disconect the battery, i always have to turn the key to the run position before i connect the battery back up. its the only way to keep the alarm from tripping and killing my starter. worth a try...

the security system in the supra is a major pain... i spent an hour trying to get it to start one day, only to find the system had tripped. I got it working by getting out and locking it by the driver's side door, then unlocking it and giving it another go. Worked for me, maybe it'll work for you...

is the starter engaging? if not, tap your starter with a hammer while some one cranks it over. may just be bad starter? but it must be cranking if you got spark? hmmmm perplexed...

she cranks and cranks but nothin... i'm certain there's something computer/electrical stopping the feul from being injected.

hmmm... maybe my alternator is dead??

well, it's off to the dealer. i'm getting her towed tomorrow to get the japanese toyota techs to figure this one out... guy on the phone said it's most definately electrical; could be feul pump or any number of things apparently. more on this as it develops!

Well there is that fuel pump relay thing in the fuse box under the hood, but it doesn't matter since it is probably at the most expensive repair shop in the world. Hope they don't find you need a new driver seat or anything.


Let us know what they found. It is fun guessing on here, but we don't always get to hear if any of us were close or not.
