SOURCE: how do i change out the starter on a 2000 toyota

You will need a 10mm wrench or socket, an 11mm wrench or socket and a 14mm wrench or socket.

****REMOVE the POSITIVE battery terminal. Skipping this step can result in serious injury if not death. Disconnect the battery first.****

Get beneath the truck on the driver side. Look up at the starter.

If you don't know what the starter looks like, follow the wires from the positive side of the battery, they go down beneath the starter. The starter is a cylindrical part that has two long, skinny bolts running through it on top and bottom that screw in toward the tailgate. (DON'T LOOSEN THESE- THEY DON'T FREE THE STARTER FROM THE TRUCK).

After you have located the starter, pull the black plastic cap off of the hot wire and unscrew the 11mm nut that holds it on. When the wire is free replace the nut onto the bolt. New starters should come with this nut attached, but this is good practice. Push teh little button in where the smaller wire connects to the starter, then pull out the little plug. I did this with bare hands, no problem, and I work in an office.

Now that you have unplugged the power and the contact to the ground, you can unbolt the starter. There are only two 14mm bolts holding it on. They screw in toward the front of the truck. One is on the bottom, right behind the transmission dip stick. This one goes through the fly wheel housing, and a clamp that secures a wire. Just unbolt it, and leave everything else as it is. The bolt on top is a little hard to get to, but it can be done! It's about six inches higher than the bottom bolt. I used a socket with no extension to break it free, and it actually came out the rest of the way with just my fingers. There is very little room to move the ratchet back and forth, so be patient.

Hold on to the starter when you get it loosened up so it doesn't fall and break anything. Put the bolts in the holes they came from for safe keeping. Lower the starter carefully and turn it until you figure out the right way to get it out. It comes out without forcing it, or bending anything, or removing anything else. (my truck has skid plates so it wouldn't just fall out.)

Replace in reverse order.

SOURCE: how to wire trailer lights to a toyota tacoma

The easiest way is to get the kit that plugs into the taillight harness to adapt your plug. If one isn't easily available then you can use scotch locks to splice into your trucks harness. Use a test light to make sure you locate the right wires in your trucks harness and go by the wire diagram on the instructions from the plug to hook it up.
I hope this helps!

Raise the hood of your Tacoma. Disconnect the negative battery cable with a wrench and isolate the cable away from the battery

Remove the nut securing the battery cable to the starter body with a wrench. Pull the battery cable off the post away from the starter. Pull the other wiring connection straight out of the connector.

Remove the mounting bolts securing the starter body to the bell housing with a socket and ratchet. Support the starter body while you remove the mounting bolts, then pull the starter out of the bell housing.

Good luck!!!

My 2000 toyota tacoma truck just won't turn on. My lights work, so I assume its not the battery or alternator..perhaps the spark plug or starter maybe the was running just fine yesterday..there...

So what does "turn on" mean?? either the engine turns over or it doesnt. If you hear 1 heavy click when you turn the key to crank, but it doesnt turn over, I would suspect you need starter contacts replaced, but only a starter/alt shop is going to repair it, most shops will only replace the starter. Sometime if yoiu just keep trying it will turn over. But dont let it go, get it fixed ASAP.

2000 tacoma cranks but wont catch, has good battery. Is it the electronic fuel inecton, or starter coil?

is it getting fuel to the "common fuel rail"?do you have any spark? if neither then either you have lost 12 volts to the ECU or you have a grounding problem there,grounding is very important

Replace starter

Disconnect the battery, then crawl under the truck and locate the starter, remove the plug going to the solenoid (small brown lead w plastic clip) . then the power wire that goes from the battery to the main starter terminal (12 mm nut) locate the 2 starter bolts 14 mm and unbolt the starter and remove. install in reverse order. ON the 4 wheel drives you may need to remove the skid plates over the bottom of the engine to access the starter.
