Question about 2004 Toyota Corolla Sedan
Dead car-tried to jump-put in new battery-same-no dash lights-no interior or exterior power-no power of any kind with key on or off-no starter turn or noise-checked small fuses-replaced blown EFI fuse under hood fuse panel-no change-tried to shift to neutral with key in on position no movement-used shift override to shift to neutral and move car-absolutely no life or electrical power any part of car.
Check you cables, see if you have a short in the grounding cable. The end grounding it to the car may have come loose. Have you ever replaced the cables? That would be my next step before you dump money into it. You know it isn't the battery so just work from there.

Older model cars (1980s) would use fusible links in the wiring harness; don't know if they're still used in the 2000 years. These would be used to protect primary circuits that would not be expected to fail under normal conditions.
My 2006 Ford has the usual interior fuse block, but the higher capacity circuit fuses are under the hood in the engine compartment. Check your owner's manual to see if there are fuses in multiple locations for your car.
If you're mechanically inclined and willing to do some work yourself, a repair manual can be a very good investment. Even if you're not so inclined, it would provide much information on troubleshooting any problems that crop up in the future.
You can get them at any auto parts store

I would look for a wiring short in the trunk at the taillamp area, or, inspect the sockets for the taillamp bulbs for corrosion. In any case, you have a short circuit in the trunk area, also check the wire that comes from the body & goes up the trunk hinge on the driver side; that wire may be chafed, and it may be shorting out. Hope this helps; please get back to me if you need any further assistance.

sounds to me that you have an igniton problem not a starter problem and or if you have or had an alarm system could be cause if u do give me feedback and i will explain but seems that your starter is fine from what u say but if you think in terms of the elemts to start a vehicle batery gives pwoer to ignition which sends to starter which gives spark etc i would check you ignition system something is causeing a short and not alowing starter to function

I had the same issues. Dash dead, tail lights dead. Fuses were fine, Dimmer relay was fine...So I got to the Tail Light Relay.
Removed the glove box, one screw on the right. Reach up (above the space where the glove box 'area' would be and there are 3 or 4 relays all sitting on top of a junction box. All of them were loose. I pushed them in...and voila! I was getting scared after the obvious.
