Have you checked the connections with a meter ? Its possible a battery cable has corroded inside and is not making connection even tho it looks ok from the outside. Could be a ground connection too.
A volt meter would tell you how far the power is getting from the battery before it stops.

SOURCE: I have a 99 tacoma with no power to fuel

Look to see if you have power at pin 1 of the circuit opening relay. The C.O. Relay is what powers the fuel pump. If you have power there (a blue wire), you have an open circuit between the relay and the pump.

SOURCE: I have a 99 camry the battery went dead and i

If your battery 'went dead' your probably have had a battery problem for awhile. Put in a new battery AND make sure the alternator is putting out 14-15volts. You can do this yourself. Buy or borrow a voltmeter-or DVOM-connect the black to the neg, and the red to the pos. while its running and make sure you have the 14-15 volts. Anything under this voltage is probably and indication that your alternator is needed also.

SOURCE: 2001 Avalon was dead (battery). Won't start or jump

Assuming the motor is not frozen, you are probably not getting 12 V *at the starter motor* while cranking.
Also, try charging the battery; a dead battery may draw so much power from the jump that there still is not enough left for the starter - specially if you are using marshmallow $5.00 jumper cables.
Check it out and correct the problem (Bad ground?).
If this is a manual transmission, you can check tha the motor is not frozen by putting it in 3rd gera and rocking it to see if the motor turns. Remember to put it back in neutral befor you play some more with the starter motor

2000 pontiac grand am has no power

If the car has no electric power and the battery is charged, the problem would be a major fuse, fuseable link wire, or connection.
You would use a meter or test light and start at the battery, working your way to the starter and fuse box checking for the open circuit.

Power on but my 2000 ford ranger will not start

Replace battery terminals and/or clean battery posts. Horn and radio don't use as much juice as starting. Sounds like a lack of amperage or electrical pressure to push the starter motor. Also check battery. Needs 12 or more volts and about 600 or more cranking amps.

Truck dies but engine keeps running. battery or alternator?

You need an alternator....well unless your belt came off or got very loose. The truck continued to drive because the battery had enough juice left to run the ignition system, but after you shut it off there was no where near enough to turn the engine over or possibly even run the starter. The battery will have to be charged and a new alternator installed.
Hope this helps.
