First thing unhook positive battery cable, unhook main cable on starter selanoid and small wire on selanoid (there may be 2 small wires) There may be a bracket on front of starter that has to be removed, and then the 2 main bolts that hold it to engine block and it should come out.

Your fuel pump may be at the end of it's life and need to be replaced. Your going to have to check your fuel pressure at the shredder valve, to have the engine start you need 60 to 65psi. Any other readings will not start and under 55psi, engine will not run. It's common to hear the electric fuel pump working but the mechanical pump it self is worn out and can no longer provide the proper fuel pressure for your SEFI system. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help get you truck running again. Auto Zone has loner tool program and they will have the step by step instructions to get the job done.

  1. Properly relieve the fuel system pressure.

Be sure to keep a Class B (dry chemical) fire extinguisher nearby.

CAUTION Due to the possibility of fire or explosion, never drain or store gasoline in an open container.
  1. Drain the fuel tank, then remove it from the vehicle. refer to the procedure found later in this section for details.
  2. Using the GM fuel gauge sending unit retaining cam tool No. J-24187, J-36608 (or equivalent) or a brass drift and a hammer, remove the cam locking ring (fuel sending unit) by twisting counterclockwise. With the locking ring released, carefully lift the sending unit from the fuel tank.

    1. Pull the fuel pump up into the mounting tube, while pulling outward (away) from the bottom support.
When removing the fuel pump from the sending unit, be careful not to damage the rubber insulator and the strainer.
  1. When the pump assembly is clear of the bottom support, pull it out of the rubber connector.
To install:
  1. Inspect the fuel pump hose and bottom sound insulator for signs of deterioration, then replace, as necessary.
  2. Push the fuel pump onto the sending tube.
  3. Using a new sending unit-to-fuel tank O-ring, carefully lower the sending unit/fuel pump assembly into the fuel tank.
When installing the sending unit, be careful not to fold or twist the fuel strainer or it may restrict the fuel flow.
  1. Secure the sending unit by turning or driving the lockring clockwise and into position under the tabs.

What relay ?
You may have the wire from the key switch on the wrong terminal.
If the car has an anti-theft system the key lock may not be reading the chip in the key.
Can you jumper the starter solenoid and make the starter work ?

ITurn key, clicking sound, no turn over


If it won't crank over, it's a problem in the starting circuit, not the ignition circuit. Check your battery and starter for clean, tight connections. Listen for that click to see if it comes from the starter solenoid on the starter-maybe have someone try to start it while you watch and listen under the hood. If the click is from the solenoid (and not from the starter relay), then the starter is not getting full battery power to crank (bad connection), or the starter needs to come off and be tested.
If the click is from the starter relay, you could pull off the little purple wire to the starter solenoid and see if it has 12 volts when the key is in start position. If you have power there in cranking position on the switch, the solenoid is bad or the starter may be the problem-again, it will have to come off for testing. If you have no power at the solenoid in cranking position, the circuit from the ignition switch to the solenoid is not working. The start relay and the neutral safety switch (or clutch switch if manual transmission) are in the starting circuit from ignition switch to the starter solenoid. Good luck.

When you say it won't start, do you mean it cranks but won't fire, or it just won't crank? If it just won't crank, you could be having an issue with the starter relay. The often become intermittent before failure. Many owners do not know there is a starter relay because it was added as a recall item i order to protect the iginition switch from burnout. The starter relay is located in the very front of the engine compartment, just to the left of the battery, on the back side of the radiator crossmember.

1988 Toyota pickup will not start after changing altinator. no lights in dash and will not start. battery charging head lights work great


Check fuse-able links, check by gently pulling apart the wires on either side of the fuse-able links, be sure to try to check them all, it helps to mark the ones you check to avoid constant rechecking and getting "lost" on which ones have been checked. Hope this helps.
