Just a simple thing could be the batteries in your key transponders, check ALL your fuses. other than that it then needs to be inspected for fuel and sensor diagnosis at a mechanics shop. hope this helps you out.

My 00 celica won't start. The battery went completely dead because I had the radio left on overnight. Now it will turn over but won't start. I have been told by a mechanic that the ECU is blown in it, so...

doubt if it is the ECU
check the ecu fuse in the engine bay cluster
and the starter relay are ok

check for spark at the plugs
and fuel pump is working
the fuel pump has a relay

ECUs dont go bad due to flat battery
if you jump started the toyota without putting the jumping earth lead to your toyota motor direct as an earth ecus may blow the fuse

Sounds like the connection from the battery to the chassis ground is bad. Try replacing the Negative battery wire and make sure where it attaches to the frame is as rust free as possible

it might be your fuel injectors. The fuel injectors have been recalled. My 2000 gts was hesitating and i had the injectors cleaned and that fixed the problem. A month later i took it in for service and was advised that there was a recall on the fuel injectors.
