Renarhue22, Are the lights the full intensity or are they slightly dimmed. I ask because the lights take less voltage to run than the starting of your engine. -Please post again with the updates. -Thanks

I have a 2001 Toyota Tacoma and I am having issues with the dome light. When the truck is running, the dome light functions as it should. But when the key is turned off, the dome light gets stuck on,


CHECK THE DIMMER SWITCH THAT CONTROLS DASH BRIGHTNESS. THIS OFTEN CONTROLS DOME LIGHT. ALSO MAKE SURE (IF PRESENT) THE MANUAL DOME LIGHT SWITCH IS FUNCTIONING

Truck wont start


It could be the fender mounted starter relay under the hood. Or if you took off the small wire at that relay (its from the ignition switch), it should have voltage when the key is held in start. If it does have power in start, probably the relay. If no power in start, either the switch or the neutral safety switch is acting up.

Truck will cut off and not start


Is the security warning light staying on when it fails to crank ?
If so, it could be the chip in your key or the sensor in the lock cylinder.
It could also be the neutral safety switch, or the starter.
Someone would need to check the starter to see if it is getting power when the key is in the start position.

Sometimes car wont crank won't even turn over turn the key and the dome light goes out battery is good don't know whats going on with it than i wait next morning it cranks


Does it make any sound when it don't crank, a click, ? when you try to start, Dosi it drain lights down? turn head lights on try starting , do lights go out or stay din? if lights stay on and return bright then chance is that you have a starter dead spot . suggest replace starter and solenoid . but first check battery ends/connection's at solenoid / clean them / Auto Zone. will test starting and charging system for free if you can bring it to them .if you have any further questions feel free to ask i will be looking for your response . give some detail on what you have tried Thank You .

How do i check starter voltage on 1995 7.3 Ford F250? The batteries are less than a year old. They are being drained frequently. Today truck will not crank. Starter checked out by mech.


Sounds like you have something else draining battery. Possibilities include the alternator. For starter cranking voltage place the positive lead of voltmeter on positive of battery and the negative on the other. Disable fuel, then crank for 15 seconds and read volts while cranking. This is your cranking voltage. For voltage drop on cables, place positive on battery positive and negative at battery cable on starter. Crank 15 seconds. This should be less than .5 volts. The same can be done with any cable or wire in the starting or charging circuit of a vehicle. Just place the positive on positive or negative on negative, with the other lead at the opposite end of the cable being tested. In charging diagnostics, you will get the charging system operating with the engine running while you do the readings. I suggest though, that you do a parasitic drain check. If you disconnect the positive cable of the battery and place a test light in series (one end to battery, the other to the cable), you should have a very dim light to no light. If the light is bright, you have a drain. Proceed by making sure everything is off and there are no dome or hood lights on. Start removing fuses one at a time until the light goes out or gets very dim. Replace each one after you check it to avoid having a pile of fuses to put back. Also disconnect the alternator wiring to eliminate this possibility. A fried regulator may feed voltage to the fields all night if it's shorted. This will drain both batteries in relatively short time.
