4 cylinder 2.2

Alright, are you sure you have spark to the plugs when cranking? and does the check engine light come on with the key just in the ON position?
Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No spark
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Yes engine light comes on but no codes
Toyota Mechanic: Edward, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago
Alright, At the coil packs on the drivers side rear of the engine, (there kind of tucked in there fairly good), We need to check for voltage on the BLACK/RED wire with key ON to both coil packs, you don't get any spark out of any of the plug wires correct? If the check engine light comes on, that means our EFI relay is working, the coils are fired by the ECM. so let's make sure we have power and ground to the coil packs before replacing anything else. If you can check the BROWN wire at the coil packs, that goes straight to ground, so you should get an ohm or less when checking it to chasis groud.

I have power to the coil packs
Toyota Mechanic: Edward, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago
Alright, do you have or have access to a scanner by chance? Just a key on engine off test would tell us if any codes are stored.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No codes
Toyota Mechanic: Edward, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago
Alright, can you check injector pulse when cranking? that would tell us if the ECM is seeing signal from crank sensor. if you have injector pulse, Also are all the plugs not firing, or just 1?

No puse
Toyota Mechanic: Edward, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago
Alright, do you have 12 volts to one wire at the injector with the key on? And the check engine light does come ON with key ON in the dash correct? I'm trying to make sure the EFI relay is working and if you have power to one wire at the injector with key on, then it is. I'm starting to lean towards the ECM has failed.

I got a computer for it does it have to be programed or can I just put it in from junk yard
Toyota Mechanic: Edward, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago
Let me check, 2000 camry could be either way. give me a few. thanks.

Thanks one more ..can bad coil pack cause no spark
Toyota Mechanic: Edward, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago
it can, but there are two coil packs, so I doubt both would fail at the same time. that's why I would check for spark at every plug, and if you don't have injector pulse. something else is going on. Does your check engine light come ON in the dash with key on?
Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Toyota Mechanic: Edward, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago
The security light in the instrument cluster, if you turn the key ON, does it stay ON? or does it flash? it's supposed to go out after a couple of seconds with the key ON. If it blinks or stays on, it's a problem.

Toyota Mechanic: Edward, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago
What is that light doing?

Engine light stays on and red light go's away

Alright, You have just a plain bare metal key? or is it plastic on the end of it?

Medel
Toyota Mechanic: Edward, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago
All metal right? if that is the case, then there is no transponder in it.

Can you check and see if one wire is hot to the injectors with key on? If it is, then I would sure try another ECM at this point. You have that ECM from the salvage yard on you now ?
Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Yes I tried and still no spark.should I try coil packs ks
Toyota Mechanic: Edward, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago
You could try. but I don't want you to spend any more on parts now than you have. You checked all your fuses, and you have power to the injectors with key ON correct, one wire should be hot all the time.

I just want a gas can now
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
O and a lighter
Toyota Mechanic: Edward, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago
loll. don't blow it up yet. I don't know what else to till you to try from here. If you don't have injector pulse, it could be connection from crank sensor to the ECM, it could be a wiring issue, no codes though, so that makes me think all that is good, Check your engine grounds, put a jumper cable from neg. post right to the engine and just make sure that's not it at this point.

If you have power to the injectors and the dash lights up, I doubt it. Let me know what happens.
