Question about 2004 Toyota RAV4
And is there a way to connect the jumper cables without taking off the battery cover. We know from earlier experience that taking off that cover is a major ordeal even for someone who knows what they are doing. Thank you for any help.

The starter is most likely the issue. The solenoid that is part of it is what engages the starter "gear." By tapping on it, you are helping it move, as it is probably worn out. If you can get it out, some auto parts stores can test them, otherwise, get a good mechanic to help out.

The inverted voltage has fried something in the ECM - sorry, you will have to replace it.
BTW the voltage is very low, a good alternator must deliver over 14.2 volts - ideally it should deliver 14.4.
