Question about 2007 Toyota Tundra
If the starter turns but the engine does not, the two most common causes are a section of teeth missing from the flywheel, or the bendix drive is not working on the starter.
The bendix gear is supposed to move out and engage the flywheel teeth when the starter turns.

There are several possibilities ranging from a defective starter, to bad cable connections, to the onboard security system locking out the starter relay, or an aftermarket accessory interfering with the starter circuit, or a locked-up/damaged engine.
I have had vehicles towed into my shop for similar complaints when the only problem was that the customer was using a cheap duplicate key that they had made at the hardware store that did not have the required computer chip in it.
I have also had vehicles towed in where the customer had replaced the battery and did not have good cable connections or forgot to connect one of the wires that was supposed to to get hooked-up to the battery connector.
Then there are the questions: Are you getting any kind of "clicking" noises when turning the key or is it completely dead? If it is clicking, WHAT is clicking? Is it the starter motor itself that you hear or just the starter motor relay? Do you have battery power at the starter "S" terminal when turning the key? If not, is the transmission selector in "PARK"? Does the shift indicator on the dash indicate that the transmission range sensor is in "PARK"? (possible defective transmission range sensor) Are there any fault codes stored in ANY of the modules connected to your onboard computer network?
It is really hard to say without being able to see the truck.

not sure, you could test it. Alternatively, I think I'd first be looking more at the starter solenoid and test that.
Please provide feedback

If you have other key try it. If it still doesn't work the immobilizer has a problem. If you deactivate it anyone with a copy of your key can put it to work. Be sure of what you do.

SOURCE: I recently put new front brake pads and had rotors turned on the front end of my 2003 tundra sr5,after a month of driving i'm getting the pulsation when braking back which is why i made this repai
HI if you have pulsation after a month you must replace the rotors
they are too thin and the heat is warping them faster then before you
had them turned
note you replace brake pads and rotors

SOURCE: I replaced the starter on my 2001 toyota tacoma truck (3.4). The starter is now turning and it appears the engine is moving a bit when the key is turned, but it wont start. I have retraced the wiring,
Won't start or won't crank ? ?
If it won't crank you might have an engine problem such as a broken timing belt.
