I have an April 2012 - manufactured Camry SE (I-4) 2012, and loving it so far. But there is an annoyance / bug/ potential problem I am encountering intermittently and it's hard to reproduce it but it does happen once in a while (such as today
). Namely, I'll enter the car, turn the key to "on," and then turn it to the Start position to start the ignition. In the event when this bug occurs, the main display "reboots" as always -- i.e., it shows the TOYOTA logo -- but the engine itself does not start! I wait a few seconds for the display system to boot back up, and then try to start the engine again, and it works fine this second time.
Again, this only happens some of the time (maybe 1 in 4 start-up attempts). I just now went to my garage (with the garage door open of course) and tried to reproduce the issue several times, and of course, none of the times, was I successful in reproducing the issue. I suspect it might have something to do with Bluetooth pairing with my phone, so I tried both with and without pairing and in both cases I was unable to reproduce the issue. But I'm sure the next time I try to do some real driving, it will surface again.
Has anyone else experienced this issue? I wonder if it is a simple software bug that could be fixed with a firmware update, or if it is an issue with the immobilizer security system in my vehicle. By the way, I do not have Entune, just the standard display audio system.
Thanks so much! I hope this isn't a serious issue to worry about since I am always able to get the car running and of course once it's up, there are no issues.
