I took a look at the prints... It doesn't show a factory alarm system on that 96 model.... (Verify by unlocking a door with the key) There are a couple of things you could try first before parts swaping. Disconnect the MAF and try to start it... Check fuel pressure and volume... Try disconnecting the tach signal from the dash... The tach is a straight shot to the dash from the engine...

 

Don't know if it's any help... but you could try these tips and see what it does. Gonz

My tech replaced the oil pump. When he starts the engine, it does turn over, it does start, for about 5 seconds. The engine sounds great, then it just turns off just as if we turned the key. Some keys have a chip, as with our personal truck, my key has not been programed and therefore when I turn on my husbands truck with my unprogramed key, the engine starts for about 3-5 second and then turns off. Same with this Camry. In checking on the internet, people talked about alarm systems for this year, make & model.

Not sure if you got this one figured out yet, im tryuing to remember twhich system the 96 had, but if it is the system that gets its ne signal from the crank gear, you might want to take a good look at the gear and sensor. If the oil pump was replaced maybe a tooth on the crank gear was damaged when removed, or makesure the wire going to the sensor is ok. again, I might be thinking of the wrong system(different yeara) Im at home, and dont have the repair manual in front of me, but thought i would just throw out a suggestion for you. I can look into it further if you need any help, I work at a toyota/Lexus dealer, so I have some resources there.

 

Let me know if I can help.

I really appreciate the ideas! We tried replacing the crank sensor. Engine would still start up, run for about 5 secs. then quietly turn off. I will have him take a look, if he hasn't already.

Do you have access to IATN or Identifx?

This is kind of late, but.... The mystery was solved on the Toyota Camry!! With the help of another mechanic in town it was found to be the Tone Ring behind the pump. Missing two teeth. Screwed the timing up preventing the engine from starting. Thanks for all the suggestions.

      I recently spoke with a friend of mine who owns a large general repair shop in the Midwest. His father founded the business in 1975. He was telling me that although he’s busy, he’s also very frustrated. When I probed him more about his frustrations, he said that it’s hard to find qualified technicians. My friend employs four technicians and is looking to hire two more. I then asked him, “How long does a technician last working for you.” He looked puzzled and replied, “I never really thought about that, but I can tell that except for one tech, most technicians don’t last working for me longer than a few years.”
      Judging from personal experience as a shop owner and from what I know about the auto repair industry, I can tell you that other than a few exceptions, the turnover rate for technicians in our industry is too high. This makes me think, do we have a technician shortage or a retention problem? Have we done the best we can over the decades to provide great pay plans, benefits packages, great work environments, and the right culture to ensure that the techs we have stay with us?
      Finding and hiring qualified automotive technicians is not a new phenomenon. This problem has been around for as long as I can remember. While we do need to attract people to our industry and provide the necessary training and mentorship, we also need to focus on retention. Having a revolving door and needing to hire techs every few years or so costs your company money. Big money! And that revolving door may be a sign of an even bigger issue: poor leadership, and poor employee management skills.
      Here’s one more thing to consider, for the most part, technicians don’t leave one job to start a new career, they leave one shop as a technician to become a technician at another shop. The reasons why they leave can be debated, but there is one fact that we cannot deny, people don’t quit the company they work for, they usually leave because of the boss or manager they work for.
      Put yourselves in the shoes of your employees. Do you have a workplace that communicates, “We appreciate you and want you to stay!”
