Have the battery tested 1st, if that is ok then the problem is the starter solenoid contacts are burnt and causing a intermittent loss of connection which causes a no crank.

Why won't my highlander start.Nothing happens when key turned to start. Starter not turning.


If you went straight to starter with jumper cables and you got nothing then , then pull and have starter bench tested. Also make sure you haven't trigger some kind of security on your system that would lock you out from starting. you should see a security light flashing if you did.

I have a 2007 Toyota Highlander. We came back from a trip and the vehicle would not start. I went to jump it and the alarm went off. I disconnected the jumper cable and it stopped. When I reconnected...


Sounds like a bad battery. If the battery is OK than lock and unlock your Toyota with your fob. If it is still dead than take the better terminal cables off and touch the negative and positive cables together while both are disconnected and away from battery terminals. Should reset your anti theft system. Connect the cables back and try to start. again. If no crank likely bad battery. If battery is OK but no crank then it is the starter.

Check your starter solenoid. Sometimes the wires loosen, or the solenoid just goes bad. Check to make sure all wires are firmly attached. Hope this helps.

99 avalon starts runs fine shut off wont start unless jumped then continues to start several tinn=mes until this happens again?


Sounds like either the voltage regulator or altenator is bad. Most part stores will test altenator, battery, and starter for free in the vehicle or out. Double check relays and cable connections

2005 highlander battery light on after changing to new battery. Maybe alternator is bad already.


Hey there,

I gather the old battery was replaced because it was dead or dying.

Was the battery light on for that one too?

Is the belt around the altenator good?

Cables good? No breaks or frays?
Connectors clean and tight?

If you have a multimeter and are comfortable working under the hood with the engine running, you can check the altenator. Black wire to ground (any bare metal surface or the negative battery terminal) There is a single wire on the rear of the altenator. Red to this one.

An alternative:
Most auto parts stores have the facilities to do a bench check on your altenator. I recommend auto parts stores over a shop because their ulterior motives are trying to sell parts not service. They are less likely to 'Discover a Problem' that previously had no symptoms.

Also keep in mind, just because a battery is new, doesn't mean it's necessarily good. They can sit on the shelf for months, be dropped, whatever. The auto parts store can also perform a 'Load Check'. Voltage is one thing. A load check simulates the draw of a starter. No black magic, it's either Pass or Fail. Fail means replacement.

Hope this helps
Mike

Car starts with jump and drives but wont start by itself


well if the altenator is charging it will run after getting a jump, you replied you put a battery charger on it but that dont mean the cold cranking amps are good or it could have a dead cell. I would have the battery tested for sure. If you didnt drive far after jump the altenator may be bad but having the battery charged and still does it tells me it is least likely. If the battery tests good the cables could be corroded under the sheath where you cant see. There are other reasons but from what you have posted sounds like you need a battery most auto stores test them for free (load test also)
