Wiring problem

Postby wabbajack967 » Sun Nov 27, 2016 2:41 pm

I just bought a st185 celica without the engine because the previous owner broke it. i bought a 3sgte engine and put it in. My problem is that the car doesnt start! I turn the key but the starter doesnt work, however i tried to give the input to the starter manually and it works, the engine starts but when i took of the wire that i used on the starter it stops working.. i checked al the relay and fuse! I Aldo noticed that when i turn the key my turbo pressure signal goes to the max but my map sensor is unplugged. Someone has an idea?

The problem is common among old Toyotas. The fix is commonly referred to as the "starter relay mod." In this post: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=31416&p=469496&hilit=starter+relay+mod#p470669

there is a link to another forum that goes over the problem and the fix. I'll repost that link here: http://www.st162.net/forum/showthread.p ... r-Problems
