I have an odd problem we have been trying to sort with a 1994 Manual Celica.
When started the car runs perfectly, absolutely smoothly.
We have already replaced the following.
Distributer, Leads, Spark Plugs, Ignition Switch.
-
This is what happens.
-
Turn the key from Off to "Start".
Nothing happens…………..
Turn the key from Off to "Start", Relax the key back to ON and Immediately back to “Start” and the car starts like a dream and runs perfectly.
-
IF you turn the key to "Start", relax it back to ON leaving it a couple of second then turn the key to “Start”…Nothing happens.
-
It is like there is some relay or system which is time sensitive to power?
-
So if you turn the key “start” “start” in quick succession it starts……broom broom…..
Any ideas what it could be?
Thanks in advance for you comments.

Hi,
We dont believe its the ignition clyinder as the key,lock and the ingintion switch turn smoothly and fully.
If you turn the key "start" "start" without a pause, it starts.
If you turn the key "start"...relax for a couple of seconds 5-10 sec..."start" it wont start....but if you immediatly go "start" again it will start.
Stange problem, but that what im hoping to find out.

Cheers

Check cables going to battery,,clean and tight,check cables going to starter, Probably loose cable to starter. If its still irratic connect 12volt meter or light to wire that engages solenoid to see if its getting power when key is turned to crank,that should cover it,
