My 1996 avalon won't start. The lights, horn, and radio work fine. Is it possible that the starter relay fuse is blown?

Battery could be old/weak/defective. Check relay/fuse box around the drivers side under the hood. Look for blown fuse (you can see easily).
Think about corroded battery terminals and especially cables. Very common. Cables may look ok, but may be oxidized and corroded on inside. They let enough current pass for radio, etc, but can't pass all the current the starter requires

1988 460 motorhome starting problem

When its hooked up, you should be able to put 12 volts on the little stud on the solenoid and it should start. One large stud will have 12 volts on it, so just jump it right there. Did you get the wires in the right place. The solenoid should have 1 large wire going down to the starter. Be sure the battery cables are clean and tight ( both ends) Check battery voltage when cranking, should go to 10-11 volts. Check voltage between negative terminal on battery and engine, should be ZERO when cranking. The solenoid has 2 large studs, make sure the battery positive wire and all the other wires are hooked to this stud, the other large stud should just have the wire going to the starter.

I know you probably have already returned the old starter for the core charge but if you have not compare the old starter with a posible earlier year or later year starter to match them up or rebuild the old starter. Was the old starter acamaro starter or a Blazer starter?

I would look at the positive cable at the battery and at the starter. Pull the cabel off and a continuity test to see if the wire has a internal break if the wire gets even a pinhole it can build corrosion on the inside of the wire and when a current is put through it it seperates (from the resistance and arc from corrosion) causing the wire to seperate internaly.

Hope this will get you started!
