    guys could anyone help me with my altis E, just bought last February 2007. Last Saturday I was at Festival Mall Alabang and my car would not start, pinatulak ko sya sa mga guard at umandar sa kadyot. This morning I was about to bring it sa Toyota Manila Bay (where i got the unit and had my previous service maintenance and had my 10,000 KM service maintenance last 31 August), while in the middle of traffic along Manggahan Floodway suddenly the radio turned off and the indicator gauges started blinking and my car stopped. I called my service advisor para magpatow pero wala daw silang towing equipment at magpatow na lng daw ako sa iba pero it would be much better kung sa kanila ko dalhin ung unit para makita kung may back job. Pina-tow ko ung oto sa Toyota Manila Bay with my own expense and upon arriving there hintay lang daw at haba na daw ang pila, sinabihan ko ung service advisor na i-prioritize ako dahil 630 am pa lang tumatawag na ko sa kanila para magpa assist, nga 10am na un so sabi ng service advisor balik daw ako ng after lunch para malaman ang evaluation nun oto, pagbalik ko sabi nag sstuck up daw ung starter at baka daw nabaha at pag nakitaan daw ng kalawang ung starter out of warranty na daw un...Honestly never ko pang nilulusob sa baha ung oto or pina pa engine wash, sabi ko sa service advisor check nya ung buong oto kung makitaan nya ng mark ng baha saka how come na starter ang problema ng oto e namatay sya habang umaandar..d ba ang starter is para sa ignition so pag umaandar ba ung oto, nd na dapat mamatay makina nun kung starter ang sira...tama ba gurus? ngayun pina hold ko ung repair at plano ko magdala ng marunong na mekaniko na kakilala ko para machek ng mabuti ung starter...tingin ko gumagawa sila ng paraan para makalusot sila sa warranty at sagutin ko ung repairs? tama ba ko? pina chek ko din alternator at battery and they found it satisfactory..guys any comments and suggestions pls...asap lng po

    Pa check mo din if marumi ang intake throttle body mo... yun ang nangyari sa akin. They cleaned the ITB for free.

    ang layo ng diagnosis nila....threaten them with a lawsuit for the warranty clause scenario...

    imo that problem is probably a battery related issue (check if the charge is low - 11V)... some new cars are fitted with old batteries...sometimes dahil lahat ay powered na, malakas din umubos ng battery.

    Kalokohan kung starter yun. Walang kwentang service advisor yung nagsabi sayo nun. As you stated, ang starter importante lang during cranking. After that, wala na siyang role.

    IMO, either battery or alternator-related ang problema. Nanginginig ba makina at low rpm's or pag nagme-menor ka? If so, pwede rin ngang marumi ang IACV or Throttle Body. Pero I doubt it, since bago pa lang sasakyan mo. Baka you could give us more symptoms bago namatay ang makina, we can help diagnose the problem better

    wow ambilis naman madumihan ang throttle body mo...10k+ kms pa lang...ung sa crv ko nga dati lampas 100k kms bago nagloko ang idle which lead to me having the throttle body cleaned by our mechanic.

    walang ibang naging symptoms basta nung saturday ng madaling araw ayaw na nyang umandar and kahapon while on my way to toyota manila bay, nag blink mga indicatro then namatay at ayaw na mag start at hindi na rin ako nag attempt ipa start sa kadyot.

    nachek na nila ang battery at alternator na ok naman daw.

    this morning balik ako sa TMBC with my father na medyo expert sa machineries para mag witness habang binubuksan ung starter assembly.

    di kaya sa ECU yan dahil yung second instance nya is nagblink yung mga gauges bago mamatay? definitely, mukhang hindi starter yan kasi nakastart ka na nung second instance mo.

    tumawag ako sa TMB bago sana punta, chinek daw nila ulet ung battery at eto raw pla tlga ang may problema at pasok na raw sa warranty...

    tinesting cguro ko ng mga ugok kung basta basta na lang ako papayag sa sasabihin nila...

    pero kakatakot yang altis hindi pala sya reliable at basta ka na lang ititirik. sayang at mega paservice pa ko sa kanila
