I have a 2001 toyota camry sitting in garage for a couple of years. Recently, I put in a new battery and tried to start the car. The headlight would turn on, and engine would start, however, none of the electrical system is working. No radio, no AC, no power window, nothing else, not even the LCD odometer, and the RPM stays at zero. The shifting gear is locked, but once I unlock with manual override, I can drive the car (power steering still work) around. However, I won’t take the risk to drive to repair shop, as car may die since the alternator is not charging the battery, and there is no signaling lights, no break lights, etc.
Any advice? Some quick online search suggested that it could be alternator, could be ignition switch, or could be fuse? How I can pin-point the problem?
