You do not replace the solenoid, you just have to replace the affected parts. What you need to replace are the 2 copper contacts, and the solenoid plunger. After removing the starter, remove the 3 8 mm bolts at the top of the solenoid housing. Remove the metal cap, and extract the solenoid plunger. Loosen & discard the 2 burnt contacts, and reassemble, refit a new plunger and bolt it all back together. Get the contacts and the solenoid plunger at a Toyota dealer.

It sounds like you have a bad actuator. This is attached to the starter and has a solonoid that pushes the starter motor gears into the engine gear. If the solonoid is faulty this may happen. Also check alignment of the same.

Starter stays on with no key on my 99 Avalon

the starter solenoid is staying engaged internal. replace starter solenoid or starter you'll be fine. good-day. If it makes a rattle (clak.clack.clak) before it catches it's just worn teeth on the fly wheel and it goes away. If the starter isn't engaged by the selonoid but it has power it's defective. If that still isn't it it's either the wireing to the starter or the switch itself

Replacing a starter

Replacing the starter on a 96 Avalon is incredibly simple. I did it in the parking lot of a store. Just bring your ratchet set and you will be good to go. I took out the old starter, had a friend bring me to autozone and I bought a new one. Its easy to locate, easy to remove and easy to install.

1998 corolla starter not engaging,I replaced the starter still nothing,the flywheel looks good help

1st thing is the battery 100% ??? try jumping it with another battery or car Poss to Poss and Earth to Earth.. and if still the same and the battery poles dont get warm then battery are ok ,,BUT CHECK it first
You say the starter motor is new and the starter ring is good but does it turn and the just spin and make a grinding noise if so the starter ring is worn at where it always stops which is about No1 cylinder
SO turn engine over by hand about 1/2 a turn and then try starting and if the starter turnes it over another 1/2 turn and stops again then the starter ring has to be replaced........ other wise you could have a big engine problem
BUT do all the above first and let me know how you go . Ron
