Question about 2005 Toyota Matrix
2005 Toyota Matrix: Battery is fully charged, started fine yesterday. Now when I turn key in ignition...nothing. No attempting to start noise, no clicking. Does not seem to do anything at all, just dead.

Matrix 2003, last summer wouldn't crank up on a hot day (battery ok, no click, nothing), but did crank up and start in the evening when the car cooled down. Found out that the wire plug to the starter solenoid had loose contact when hot; fixed that by inserting a piece of a bare metal paper clip into the plug. This summer the car was sitting for 2 weeks w/o being started (out of town), afterwards didn't crank up with the same symptom (no click) even in the evening. Found out there was no 12V to that same starter solenoid plug when the key was turned to start position. By turning the key on and off several times, the car finally cranked up and started, so looks like now it's the ignition switch. Haven't replaced it yet, waiting to see if the problem will show up again.
