Customer Question
It was running fine...

It was running fine but I went to start it and it will turn over but won't crank and both the check engine and of lights are flashing

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

Blinks, we can't seem to pull a code

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Toyota?

93 Corrola

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 9-3 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Just trying to at least pull a code so I know what's going on but having trouble doing so. I would prefer to fix it myself if I knew what was wrong

Thanks for posting

The engine cranks with the starter but not fire up and run is this correct?

That is correct
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 7 months ago

You can check for diagnostic codes using a jumper wire in the check connector under the hood, turn the key on and put a jumper wire between the terminal E1 and TE1 the engine light will flash giving you a code number. for example a code 12 would be one blink then two and so on, let me know if there are any codes.

We've already done that, but it won't give a code
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 7 months ago

Ok, no problem we have to do a few checks then

How did this start, did the car quit while driving or just not start after being parked for a while? Do you have a 12 volt test light or a voltmeter? Have you checked to see if the plugs are firing?

Does the engine seem to turn over faster than normal like it's just spinning?
