2011 Hybrid Camry no power did not start
This is my first posting on this site. I live in Charlotte, NC
and we own a 2011 Hybrid Camry. We have owned the car
for about 6 months now.
On Friday April 15, 2011 we had our first oil change at 4400 miles.
Saturday we took the car for our first 5 + hour trip. We travelled
to Surf City, NC. Sunday afternoon we drove the car as usual. Monday
is where the problem was experienced:
At around 2 pm I approached the car with the key fob. The
security system did not detect our keyless entry. Then I opened
the door and noticed something peculiar. Nothing would work.
We attempted to start the car using the push button -nothing.
Pressed on the brake for a few secs and did push button button -nothing.
Initially it looked like we were having a battery issue.
Called my dealer in Rock Hill and they asked us to try holding the
keyless entry fob up to the button for a few secs. --nothing still.
We called our road assist service, and AAA tried to jump start the car.
That did not work either. We then had to have the car towed.
This morning Tuesday April 19th I got a call from the dealer
we had the car towed here in Wilmington, NC.
They have advised that the car is starting normally.
We have asked the technician to do a complete diagnostic check of the system.
I am worried that this is not going to get fixed and we are going to be riddled with
problems since the dang car is only 6 months old.
Just wondering if anyone else has experienced a similar problem with
