Question about 1995 Toyota Tacoma
Could the switch cause the starter to act like the battery is bad(just clicks when key is turned)? Only happens at lower outside temps. Above 40 degrees starter works just fine.
Yes it could. You need to have an amp clamp and a volt meter to test it though. Typical strike/peak amps is 150-200 range. If the amps are higher and the battery weak it could be your cause.

SOURCE: When I turn the key
If you can hear a relay clicking, then your starter relay should be OK. Try tapping the starter solenoid (on the starter) with a hammer while someone cranks the ignition over. Sometimes it'll get jammed or stuck and won't start the car. Try that out - if it works, then you may need to overhaul or replace your starter.

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

turn on the head lights and while someone watches the head lights try to start the car, do the headlights dim or go off get back to me and we'll go from there
