Question about 1996 Toyota 4Runner
Wonder if you could give me some advice just gone out this morning to start the car but it will not the battery is ok but when i turn the key the starter motor just clicks once and the lights go out many thanks mark.
What you have is a VERY common problem. Your starter solenoid contacts are worn out. To rectify this, you have 2 options: Remove the starter and replace the burnt contacts (the are located under a metal plate that has 3 small bolts holding it to the starter; replace the plunger and the 2 copper coloured contacts) OR reeplace the starter. The clicking noise that you hear is the plunger hitting one contact, but the current from the battery is not passing thru the plunger to the other contact that leads into the windings of the starter. No contact = no crank.
