A quick check for starter operation is to remove from vehicle, with jumper cables attached to a battery, attach neg. jumper to starter body, then touch pos. cable to starter where cable from + battery would hook up, starter gear should extend to end of shaft and spin. Better yet, since the starter would be out to do this, bring it to a parts store for a free check which will be more thorough and you will get a diagnosis if something isn't right with it.

Will it crank in neutral, and have you checked the starter to see if it has power when the key switch is in the start position ?

94 Toyota pickup starter issues

The usual cause of this is a dying battery, which has enough charge to pull in the starter solenoid (the click), but not always enough to crank the engine.This is because such a battery cannot hold a good charge for very long.

If you feel your battery is definitely OK then it would be the large contacts at the bottom of the starter solenoid, which are worn out. The solenoid pulls in but contact is made only intermittently. I had a Toyota once which did that.

My 94 toyota has a clicking sound. Starter was replaced but still clicks. Battery terminals have been cleaned. Any ideas?

Battery can be tested at the parts store. try jumping the battery , put the positive side on first. If this gets rid of the clicking then have the battery tested.

All connections are good as far as i can see...when i try to start it the starter kinda clicks like its not getting enough juice or battery is i put jumper cables on it also and same...

Chances are the brushes inside the starter are worn. The way a starter is wired internally, the solenoid pull in winding is taken out of service if the brushes are worn to prevent internal damage to the starter. Have the starter checked by a qualified person.

The 1990 Pickup will not stop. I replaced the starter 2 months ago and yesterday it will no longer start. It just clicks once. I brought the starter back to NAPA and had it tested and it works fine. What...

Sounds like a battery if it just clicks once.You hardly get a whir whir out of the starter right?The lights may appear somewhat normal because they don't need much power to turn on but the starter needs LOTS of power to turn over.The average life of an alkaline battery is about 6 years.Good luck!

My pickup just started having an issue with starting. it will prime the fuel pump but it just clicks instead of starting. i have changed the starter and relay hoping that would solve the problem but no...

That usually happens when the battery is dead. It has enough juice to pull in the starter solenoid, but when the solenoid (which is an electromagnetically actuated switch) connects the start motor to the battery, the load is so heavy that the battery can no longer even hold the solenoid in. The solenoid releases, taking the starter off the battery as a load, and then there is enough energy to pull in the solenoid again.

If the battery actually has a good charge in it, a really bad connection can cause this (it's rare, but it can happen).
