Question about 1995 Toyota Camry
Daughter's car would not start after school. Had lights, radio, etc and heard one click when turning ignition key. Battery a couple years old, so I changed with new one. Now do not have any electrical power, totally dead. Checked fuses and everything looks OK. What did I do? What can be done?
I've had similar problems with my cars, and everytime it was a bad ground or power wire, or corrosion on the terminals. Get a wire brush and clean both battery connecters..even a little corrosion can cause a no power situation. If you have a test light, connect the ground of the test light to the negative cable of the battery and touch light to the positive cable...if the test light doesn't light up, then you have a break or lose connection in your ground wire. Trace the battery ground to the engine block and clean that also...the smallest thing can interupt power...hope this helps..

Well, your initial problem sounds like a bad starter motor and now somehow there is another problem.
First, make sure the battery shows 12v with a volt meter. If its ok thenit may be that you accidentally hooked the battery up backwards...even for a second, it would have blown out a main fuse. Notice any sparks when you installed the battery? Or, did you try to jump it with another car and put the cables on wrong? If no too all this the check the smaller wires on the positive battery end to make sure none broke.
The main fuses are located in the relay/fuse box near the battery.
Hope this helps.
