yeah, pretty sure its just the battery, it wouldnt be the first time. specially in this cold weather.

i havent run my car for like two+ weeks, im not usually this bad about not doing so.

figure im gonna need a new battery soon, too. arggh

im going to check starter wiring just to be sure, because im pretty sure i can get it running with a jump

Well if you can get it going with a jumpstart then it means it has nothing to do with your starter. It means either your battery is pooched, or your battery is just dead because your alternator hasnt been charging it. Try jumping it, and if it fires up put a voltmeter on your battery and make sure you have 13.5 - 14.5 volts going thru. If you dont then you know its alternator time.

altnerator is good, otherwise the dummy lights would be on.

it flashes basically every dummy light telling you so when such happens.

right now since ive done nothing but look at the car, im guessing battery or starter wiring.

went through the TSRM, just to orientate myself incase i need to do some more wiring.. so i figure im good to go as soon as theres a nice day to work on the car

the reson why it is not starting

is this you bat is to low in oder to crank the motor you need to re deep charge it once you try to start it a big lod of current will be wanting to be used but there not eghough voltage to turn the car over ebut every thgin els will work fine



the prob i had is not what you are haven


or the cable to starter wires is all gumb up and needs ot be clean

main grounds have broek or come loose or just all croded


easy way to cheak for alt i just take take the cenntor's off the bat hook up jumper cables to the + and - cables goign to your car give the other car some gas and styart the other one up

then just take the power away form the other car if it still runs wiht no hickups when you rev it then you are fine


that and fuse there fun

Glad to hear the jumpstart worked for you, i was pretty sure it was nothing to worry about. But i would still make sure to check that your alternator is charging, its quick and easy and could lead to why your battery died in the first place. Just my 2 cents.

1) figure out and fix problem on the supra
2) build DP, swap exhaust
3) clutch
