Question about 2006 Toyota Corolla
Was having a problem with the battery holding a charge, changed the Battery and worked fine until we left it for a Week without driving it. Boosted it a couple of times no problem, now it looks like a Fuse has blown. Ignition instrument lights light up but will not engage the Starter. Is there a Fuse blown? Bob.

it sounds like either your having a short at the starter or the ignition switch is bad, I am leaning towards the issue being the starter, usually when the ignition switch is going bad there will be no click,

There are contacts located inside the solenoid of the starter that fail with age.
As the contacts where down, the starter likes to 'stick' and can take many tries to start, often requiring jostling like turning the wheel.
There are two options to correct this. The first obviously is to replace the starter.
To save some money you can replace the contacts instead.
Doing this requires unhooking your battery and removing the starter from the car.
Then remove the access plate on the back of the solenoid (3 8mm bolts), take out the plunger and spring. From there you can see the copper contacts, and how they have worn. Remove the 12m and 14mm on either side of the housing and push the bolts through to release the contacts and install new in the same order they came apart.
If you are taking this to a repair shop, be advised most independent shops will just try to sell you a $450 starter. Provide them these instructions or take it to a Toyota dealer and ask for "starter contacts" and they will know exactly what you need.
