Question about 1989 Toyota Camry
My 89 celica st often times i will go out in the morning and it wont start. The starter will make a single loud click but wont turn over. If i continue to turn over my ignition it sometimes will start sometimes wont. A jump box will not start it but as soon as i jump it with a nother car it fires right up.
I have all my lights, and my battery gauge is readuing normal. Ive replaces the alternator, starter several times ( both with aem starters and toyota denso starters) have had a few batteries, and still no fix. I replaced both my relays, after it warms up it usually wont happen but if I turn it on and off time and time again in a short period it will stop starting.
There is either a cable not getting a very good connection, solenoid has problems, or there is a wiring leading to a relay that has a bad connections. How is your ignition? Is it loose or have loose wires?
also check the magnetic switch mounted on the starter housing, is supplied by current from the starting switch circuit of the ignition switch. This magnetic action of the switch mechanically engages the starter clutch assembly and electrically closes the heavy switch which connects it to the battery. The starting switch circuit consists of the starting switch contained within the ignition switch, a transmission neutral safety switch or clutch pedal switch, and the wiring necessary to connect these in series with the starter solenoid or relay.

I am actually having the same problem. Grab a 8 gauge or 10 gauge wire and touch one end to the starter and the other to the positive side of the battery. If the battery is fine then this conferms that there is a problem with power going through the main harness to the starter from the battery.
