Hi, I have a Toyota corolla 2.0 4D4 Sol August 2003 *european/spanish

Customer Question

Hi, I have a Toyota corolla 2.0 4D4 Sol August 2003 *european/spanish version* with 83000kilometers. It's running fine. Two issues:
1. The start engine seems to have some trouble: it should run with 1 "tick" of the key or not? I was used to that with another Toyota at least. How to determine whether the starting engine should be repaired (cleaned?) or changed for a new/substitute?
2. I have the car since 2 days and this morning I left the car and when I opened the door I heard "beep .. beep ... beep" which normally was not the case. All the lights were turned off, the doors were locked well, trunk, etc. Then I closed the door, nice stops (both me being inside and outside). And then wanted to use the remote key and the alarm didn't work anymore! aha... something to do with that also?
After using the car like this a few times today I parked it in the garage, let it run stationary a while and switched it off and no "beep .. beep" and the alarm with remote key worked again... I am puzzled. Is this "just" an electronic random error, or could this be investigated, where to start? Would like to have some clue before bringing it to the Toyota dealer who wil charge me an arm and a leg for whatever, because Spain is in big economic stress.
Many thanks in advance for your help,
Regards,
James

Hi, I'm a Moderator here at Just Answer and will try to help you get an answer as you have been waiting for awhile. The response rate on Just Answer is usually over 95%, but sometimes questions do go un-answered. Some of the common reasons found on some questions are:



1. The question is unclear.

2. The question price you selected is low for the complexity of the question.

3. The question seems to request an answer for something that cannot be explained online.

4. And sometimes, there just may not be an Expert available who feels they have the proper experience to reply.



If you would still like to receive an answer from an Expert, just let me know, and I will do my best to find an Expert to assist you.

We hope you’ll give JustAnswer another try in the near future.
