Question about Toyota Cars & Trucks
I got the following diagnostic codes B2289, B2279, B2287
You need to see the dealer on this, most likely you have a PCM issue or a defective start relay. Special testing must be done to determine the actual cause. This is not something you can do at home. If you have an extended warranty use it.

This could be a problem with your starter -- if you know a bit about engines try tapping the starter with a wrench while someone turns the key (not too hard so you don't damage it if this is not the problem). If your starter motor has a "dead spot" tapping it can get it to free itself up and might help. If this DOES help, please consider changing your starter so you don't have to keep going through this problem. If tapping the starter does not help, it might just be dead altogether. If you are doing your own work, try replacing it and hopefully that should help. If you are not going to do your own work on the car, a mechanic should be able to give you a proper diagnosis and repair the issue without too much hassle.

This sounds like there is a dead spot in your starter. The easiest way to resolve this issue is to replace your starter. Many times, if you take a lot of short-distance trips over the life of your car, the wiring inside the starter itself will wear (short trips means starting it more often, causing a lot of wear over time). Then the inner wiring of the starter wears too much, it forms a "dead spot" -- when the starter is stopped at a very specific spot i will not form the magnetic force needed to torn the starter motor. This is a common issue which can be dealt with for a time if you have to save the money to replace the starter. Tapping the starter, or arcing it with a screwdriver makes the inner workings of the starter jump a little, allowing it to move out of the dead spot and kick over as normal, but it is only a temporary fix. Unless you refurbish electronics for a living, it is very unlikely that you will be able to repair the starter on your own, and such a repair takes some time, so you are better off to replace it than try to repair the starter itself.
As long as the starter does not happen to stop in the dead spot, it will work as normal ... but in time the dead spot will spread, causing the issue to worsen. You can keep forcing it to turn with the two tricks you used until you have had the opportunity to earn the money to replace the starter (or until you have a day off to get the repairs done) .. but over time this can cause more damage to other parts of the car, so I recommend replacing the starter as soon as you can.

the clicking noise is most likely coming from the solenoid on the starter motor, the solenoid is like a big switch with contacts inside of it,when you turn the key to start the engine these contacts come together to transfer the power to the starter motor,if the solenoid can't be taken apart & the contacts cleaned or replaced it will have to be replaced.......hope this helps....cheers

you do not get an clicking sounds from your starter at all when you turn the key ? You might have to replace the starter because they do go bad on you. I just had the same problem myself and had to replace the starter so fun job for me because I had to get underneath my Daewoo car to even get to the starter and replace it.
