My 1995 Avalon’s engine won’t turn over. It was operating normally two days ago. Car has 1MZFE engine, 248,000 miles.
When I turn the key, I hear a very rapid clicking (solenoid ?)
sound from under hood. Sounds like a pneumatic rivet gun.
Battery checks out normally, it’s 2 years old. I put it on a charger, drew 4 amps initially, down to 1 amp within 10 minutes. I cleaned the terminals and connectors. No change.
I did wash the car two days ago. Would any water getting under hood harm anything? I’ve washed this car a hundred times with no issues. I’m careful to never aim the water into the grill.
