2006 yaris turns over, wont start Sign In

Hi everyone, I'm having the oddest issues with my girlfriend's 2006 Toyota Yaris: The engine turns over and won't start, and no OBD codes come up. I've tried starting fluid in the air intake to check bad fuel pump(no change), and i pulled two of the spark plugs and check for arc (had spark). Ive run out of ideas except for changing sensors, but theres no codes generated as there would be for a cam sensor. Ideas?

Additional info:
-Girlfriend says the car had a little trouble starting a couple times before it stopped in my driveway
-i can't hear the fuel pump come on when the key is turned to ON, but the starting fluid applied through mass air flow sensor port had no effect while trying to start.

OK - Only takes so much for an engine to react, fuel delivered, spark and on time, compression and air it should at least do something.


Not so sure your way of trying starting fluid to prime this worked at all and you lack fuel. Plugs would also be dry and you looked at a couple should know. Can't hear fuel pump is inconclusive as area noise can drown that out and it needs pressure from it not sound - some not so noisy?


Try again with starting fluid right into throttle body. It should react. If so fuel pressure test next and bet you find nothing.


Any vehicle rule out whacked stuff like any theft controls and even if it's out of fuel despite what gauge might say?

You sure this is a 2006 Yaris? They didn't show up in the states until 2007.

Will it start if you hold the throttle open 1/4 the way? Make sure the throttle plate isn't bound or carboned up.





Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.

? Good point DS - Yaris not sold till 2007 except for Puerto Rico for some reason for US and Canada would have access to sell them as well TMK. Only with a 1.5 "T" code engine? Who knows, should be same as a 2007 at a glance. The web is never wrong of course!
