[Solved] Trouble Starting
Hi, I have a 1999 Toyota 4runner, 179K miles, automatic, 4 cylinder engine. About two weeks ago, my car started making a stalling noise when starting. Now it takes about 2-3 times to crank before starting. Is this possibly the starter? or could it be something else? I have included a link to the video of the stalling noise.
Presuming nothing else is going out, odds are good that you have a loose/dirty/corroded connector supplying power and ground to your radio. Get some spray contact cleaner and clean and tighten the connector to the radio, check the applicable fuse for looseness/corrosion.
Scotty, I just purchased a 99 Toyota 4Runner with 170K miles, 4 cylinder, automatic transmission. Every time I step on the breaks, the car radio goes out. How do I fix this?
Battery voltage with the engine running should be around 14v. If it doesn't read this, the alternator or the wiring is bad.
