Question about 1989 Toyota Cressida
Had the same problem many years ago. What happens is the wire resistance dereasing with age, so the voltage to the starter motor is less than 12V. The solution is to unplug the starter motor cable and feed it to a 12V relay with a ground to the other side of the relay coil. Next , take a +feed from the battery and plug that to one of the switch contacts of the relay and and run the other contact to the starter motor. So what happens when you start your car the relay is activated first and this sends a stronger 12Volts to the starter motor. Best of luck - Michael fron South Africa
