Question about 1994 Toyota Celica
My 2000 4Runner has a problem. I put in the key and I get a click. Sounds like a starter problem however if I move the steering wheel slightly to the left or right the car starts. Sometimes when I am moving the steering wheel around to find the "Sweet Spot" the radio comes on?
I read something about a faulty neutral switch on another post, and something else about a bad starter solenoid. Any ideas would be appreciated
You need to remove the stater and get the worn contacts replaced. When you turn the key to start, and you get "one click", that is the starter solenoid engaging, but not transferring battery power to the starter motor windings. This is a very common issue. Don't believe the post about the neutral switch, you will get NO sound form the starter with a bad neutral switch. Here is the real deal: I am a Toyota Service Manager. I know exactly what your problem is, the "other posters" have nowhere near my experience with this issue. Trust me. If you remove the starter and get the contacts replaced, you will be fine.
