drove My 89 toyota camry 6 cyl, but noticed engine lights on, drove back home but then would not re start. was able to jump start it, drove it for approx 1/2 hr, but did not shut car off. When got home would not re start. checked and replaced bad alternator. Jump started but then battery would not hold charge and died. checked and replaced bad battery. Car now will turn over, but not start. had several friends look at it…. they say there is no charge to any of the spark plugs, and another theory that it is not getting any gas? I don’t understand wut could have happened between the alternator going out and being replaced to have caused this, or wut i need to fix next. I have checked all fuses that I know how to, not sure about the relays. At a complete loss of what it could be . Help!!!

  1. You checked the fuses first and that was the right move. If all the fuses are good you can move to the next test. If the spark plugs are not getting spark and you are not getting fuel.. it could be the computer fuse, computer, or distributor. It would be best to make certain if it not getting spark and or no fuel. If it has spark, you can spray starting fluid in it to see if it would at least run on that. If it does, then you know you just have a fuel issue and could be just a bad fuel pump. If it is getting fuel but no spark, it could be just a bad distributor.

    Make Certain that all your fuses are good since and that you have connected the cables correctly and they are free of corrosion as this too is a possible cause.
