Turn the key to ON, put your foot on the brake and move shifter to N. Try and start it. If nothing then you probably have a bad starter.

SOURCE: Can't find the spark plugs on a 2004 toyota tundra V-8

If the engine is the same as my 2002, they are a Hemi-style which go right into the valve covers, hidden under the individual coil packswhich can be removed by loosening one nut I believe. After you remove the nut, pull straight out and you will see the Spark plug cap is attacked to the bottom of the coil pack, use an extension and a spark plug socket preferably with a rubber grommet inside it or you will play hell getting the plugs out of the wells once they are loose.

SOURCE: 2001 toyota avalon engine and vsc light stays on

You have to use a scanner and pull the code out that is causing the check engine light to come on. whatever code/codes you find are probably related to vsc light.
Good luck and keep me posted

My 2001 toyota avalon has a clicking noise that comes from the starter relay fuse in the fusebox when I turn my car off, how can I make it stop.

I think the first step is to replace the relay. If that doesn't work I'm not sure where to go from there. This is a strange problem.

The first thing to do is try another key. Perhaps your transponder key has failed.
You can identify a 'transponder key'; it has a wide part wher you turn it.
