Please I Need Your Advice On My Toyota Corolla by Mj18: 1:43pm On Aug 02, 2016
Good afternoon nairalanders. Please I need help from the experts in the house concerning my 2001 Toyota Corolla. I drove the car to church on sun and there was no issue but after service the car did not start, no sound at all but the dashboard lights came on as normal (so I guess it isn't battery issues). After several tries, a friend suggested it might be the kick, so we opened up the bonnet and tried hitting the kick while trying to start, still nothing. This friend then changed the gears, he put it in reverse (I'm not really sure what he did) and it started, I just drove it home and parked it. I was planning to get a rewirer to check it out but then an uncle of mine (he sells cars so he seems to be familiar with car issues) came around, started the car and said it wasn't the kick, said something about the gear needing reset and that I should just keep using it and if I have the same issue, I should just fiddle with the gear but please I would like to know what exactly is wrong and what repairs need to be done. Is it the kick, the gear or something else entirely? Please help. Thank you.

You need to have your gear selector stalk and the range sensor (the selector on the gear box) set properly in sequence. Im sure you may have had a recent job done on the gearbox.

Oh ok thanks. I didn't do a repair on the gear box though.
