    Default Problem in new Xli

    aoa,
    guys today i tried to start my new Corolla after a couple of days and was amazed to know that the car didnt start and was producing an awful "tuk...tuk....tuk" noise whenever i try to start it. the noise was coming from one of the injector in the engine bay and from something inside the glove compartment. the battery was completely charged, all lights and audio system is working fine. the car wont start anyway. i called the toyota dealership guys n they said there was no mechanic available coz it was after 6PM. they said they will try to send someone on friday morning. as its a holiday on friday so they were not sure if any mechanic would show up.
    Help me brothers!! what could be the problem?

    P.S. the car has hardly 400KM on the odo.

    Hi,

    Its good to know that your problem has been resolved.

    An OBDII (On-Board Diagnostics Version 2) meters can interface with the computer in your car and get data from it. The computer is logging all sorts of info and it has a module to detect engine performance parameters as well. So when something goes wrong, it'll give you a code - either identifying the exact problem or identifying where the problem might be). So when You want to troubleshoot - its a good start - especially if the check-engine light is on. Before 1999, we had version 1.0 and after that its version 2.0. The Meter is a handy tool - sort of the same device that you see at your dealership that they use during tune-up etc. If you have a laptop and proper cables, you can connect it to your car - at your home and see for yourself how your car behaves during different times etc. The costs here are $80 for a base OBDII2 meter and go up from there depending on what you want. I have a setup that cost me around $250.00 and it gives me a lot of info on my cars. (You don't need it. How often do you tune up your car? I just had to have it because I like to tinker around in cars - expensive hobby to say the least!).

    Regarding the issue with your car, I'd still suggest you take the car to your dealership and have it checked and diagnosed. If your check engine light came on it might still represent a problem in the system. The check engine light can be turned off by disabling the battery (or a dead battery) but that doesn't mean the problem is resolved. You still need to make sure. Your technicians can tell you if the system is performing good now and turn off the check engine light properly. This should all be covered under their warranty.

    Regards,
    MSKHAN

    P.S: I'm sorry I couldn't reply earlier as I lost this thread and couldn't find it. I was curious to know what happened to your car!

    You usually get a warranty card of the battery in your glove compartment, so going to toyota might be a waste of time imho,,, i could be wrong though

    Hi bro,

    You need to check the car's connector to see if they are the same as your Toyota's and if they are then you can connect. I've seen only 3 types of connectors so far and they are not expensive (about $24 a piece along with cable etc). I'm not sure where they would be available in Pakistan - but I'm sure you can find these on Google. Depending on the meter or software you have, you can flash, modify or tinker around with your car's computer but you should be very careful and know exactly what you are doing. (Cars are expensive toys!!). You can download the software from the internet and see for yourself what you can tinker around with. A Google search on OBDII software will tell you a lot!

    Regards,
    MSKHAN

    I went through your post very fast, might have skipped any mention about CNG. Does your car have CNG?
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    i had the same Prob (my car is having CNG )

    m sure u got petrol mixed with CNG .

    it is caused when u depress the throttle before u start .

    Now what u need to do is to open the air intake get sum petrol in a small container and put that petrol in the Air Intake manifold .make sure u crank the car very long and i wud suggest use two batteries for cranking.
    ur engine will start

    i did it in my NEW Gli 2007.

    nad guys never evr depress the throttle before u crank the engine.

    My fathers new 2007 GLI's gave these kind of krrrrrkrrrrr sounds when its self-starter broke in first 100 kms.
    Toyota Sahara, refused to replace it in warranty and stated it broke due to misuse.

    In 100 kms probably we only started the car 3-4 times, including 30 kms were run by them up to showroom rest of the 70 kms were run by us and this happend. However after a good lecture by my dad the owner of Sahara agreed to replace the self-starter.

    I thought your krrrrr krrrr was related to starter, but thank God its only battery, which can be easily replaced in warranty.
    I am back & still "Keeping my fingers crossed"

    @MSKhan18
    thanks dude. i'll search for it.

    @autophile
    no bro i dont have CNG kit installed in my car.

    @fsx
    i hope mine is not broken.
    thanks anyways.

    Today i went to Toyota Dealership, the electrician said that the battery is not properly charged so they sent a person to my place and took the battery to charge it and was supposed to return it by 5pm but didnt show up. i'll get it tomorrow( hopefully a new one as my dad did a bit of tune-up of the head mechanic). will update u with the situation tomorrow. the electrician mentioned something abt the low gravity of the battery. would someone elaborate it?

    If you face this problem again, check the carbons of the starter which rotates the engine to start.

    riazsaad, you should get the alternator checked too. Three days is too short a time for the battery to go dead, if it was properly charged by the alternator.
    My opinions, suggestions and thoughts are strictly my own. I reserve the right to be human and make mistakes.

    @c123pk
    my bad. u were right. thanks.

    @riz_
    ya thats what i was concerned that 3 days is a small period of time. now that the battery is back (fully charged, though the old one), i'll see if it works fine. if the problem still persists, i'll get the alternator checked. thanks bro.

    Hi,

    Forgot to tell u one thing though. The connector for the OBDII is (should be) located under the steering column - inside the car. Thats the default position for cars here in US - I don't know about Pak manf regulations.

    Regards,
    MSKHAN
