What could be the problem with a 1999 Avalon Toyota the dash clock is dimming and flashing no dome lights and the keyless system is not working Car battery is new battery on keys new?
There is a recall out for the security system wire harness. Take it to a dealer who can check the harness and replace it - some 1600+ Toyota had the faulty harness.
Answer If the battery light comes on when you try to start your car, either your battery is low or your alternator is going bad. These can be checked by going to …an Advance Auto or Auto Zone, they will test it for you for free.

If you have new battery and alternator but battery is still not staying charged what could be the problem?
Something is draining the battery. Check all lights. Glove box, trunk, etc. Also check the power window switch.
You have to jump start your car everyday installed a new battery and alternator what could be the problem?
You should have a heavy red wire going to the back of the alternator, it should have 12 volts, it will excite the alternator, thus allowing it to charge your battery. If the d…oesn't have 12 volt, trace the wire, I believe that it will end at the starter. If you have 12 volts at this wire, most likely you have a fusable link that's shorted out at the starter. Look for a wire at the starter that appears burnt, or wiggle the wires one at a time, you'll find on that feels like a plain rubberband, with no resistance while wiggling.
Why does the brake and battery light come on at same time then car dies then wont start without new or charged battery?
sounds like you have an alternator that is not charging the battery. Most computer systems in cars require a min of 11.2-11.6 volts to function. The brake light is probably al…so the warning light for ABS and requires power to the motor (ABS) and if the ABS computer doesnt sense the correct voltage it will set a light
There could be a sensor wire that is bad or going bad
It's possible. Your starter draws more power from your battery than the lights and radio combined, so they may work, but when you try to start you car, there isn't enough pow…er in the battery to operate the starter. It's best to have your starting and charging system checked by a reputable automotive repair shop in order to isolate the cause.
Maybe the starter. Does it click when you turn on the ignition? Yes and also check to see if you are getting spark and there could also be a fuel delivery problem.
When trying to start 1999 Chrysler Concorde it will not turn over it only has a clicking sound lights and radio still work what could the problem be?
There are many possible causes. With my sons LXi this problem seems to have been related to the factory security system and a faulty tamper detection switch at the trunk key-l…ock. Another symptom is the alarm (horn and lights) would sound off on its own randomly. You can tell if you have this problem by locking the car with the key or fob and watching the red light in the center of the dashboard under the rear view mirror up near the windshield. If the light comes on solid for a few seconds before it begins flashing, then your trunk switch has a fault. After the alarm sounds, it prevents the car from being started and leads to all sorts of autoshutdown (ASD) issues where the relays under the hood keep clicking until the fuses are pulled to reset the ASD and PCM circuits. Sometimes the engine may start, run for a few seconds and die. Locking and unlocking the car and trunk until the normal security light sequence (16 seconds of fast flash, then slow flashes) seems to put everything back in order. Or your battery could just be be extremely low. it takes much more energy from the battery to start a vehicle than it does to power the radio or interior lights. the clicking sound comes from the starter relay trying and failing to engage the starter and turn the engine over.
Unwanted Brake Light Activation Usually this is caused by the brake light SWITCH being out of adjustment in relation to the brake pedal arm which pushes on a plunger in the …switch to operate it. Different makes and models of vehicles have different means of mounting and adjusting the brake light switches, so the adjustment will depend on your vehicle.
it depends does the car turn over if not most likely it the starter
If you have a chip in your key the chip may have gone bad or your ignition is not reading it. the car thinks someone is trying to steal it & stops ignition process. try to get… a new key made. you may have to get it from a dealer.
the battery is dead
The computer has detected a fault with the battery and charging system. On a modern car it will need to be scanned to see why the computer is angry. On… an old (older than mid 90's) car you have to figure out whats wrong with the alternator.
