Question about 1985 Toyota Pickup
Okay people, My daughter drove this truck to school yesterday. She goes to leave and the truck didnt start. This is the run down....... She says "she thinks" she left the headlights on. New battery installed---- Still no power. WT@#$^%$ ???????? 80 AMP fuse was blown. Replaced 80 AMP fuse, 40 AMP fuse, 30 AMP fuse. Power restored. Truck cranks but wont start. Replaced coil. Truck cranks but wont start (no spark). BAFFLED.....Any idea ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
Sounds like a crank sensor to me. I believe this will be found just below your bottom pulley [ crank pulley] . This is responsible for getting power to the coil. These are sometimes hard to get out . I just broke it off and used a socket. I don\'t know how you can test this sensor unless you have a wire test kit. I am not positive on this, but I\'m pretty sure. It sure sounds like it. Let me know how you make out.

SOURCE: 87 toyota 22R no spark
To check the Coil, pull the HT lead that comes from the coil to the dissy cap out of the dissy cap and hold close to the engine and with the ignition switch turned on earth the negative side of the coil. If there is no spark then the coil is the likely problem. If there is spark then check that the ignitor is recieving the signal from the pick-up (use an LED tester at the ignitor plug) the tester should blink as you crank the engine over. If the tester doesn't blink then check the output of the pick-up at the plug on the side of the dissy, if still no blink then check the pick-up clearance. If it blinks at the dissy and not at the ignitor the check the wires/plugs for breaks. If it blinks at the ignitor and there is still no spark then the ignitor is the likely fault.

I had the same problem 3 weeks ago with my 87 Toyota truck. I posted the problem here and the response I got was- On the passenger side rear of the carburetor is a cold air idle valve, it has a two wire pigtail on it, remove the valve and clean it out with carb cleaner. Then screw it back in and all should be well. I did this, not really expecting much. My truck started right up and has been idling with no problem since. Try this and also your fuel filter.
