Question about 2001 Toyota Tundra
We just installed a new battery last week at which time we had the alternator checked and it passed.
All those things have in common is the ignition switch, that only in accessory, or on (run), or start, allows power to that portion of the fuse block protecting those circuits, everyone you mentioned that quit.
Use a test light or voltmeter, pick a fuse -gauges. With key on, the fuse should show power on it, and across it if the fuse is good. If it doesn't have voltage to it, trace it back to how the ignition switch turns that portion of the fuse panel on (possibly a relay-ignition or accessory relay...I'm guessing), and further, whether any relay involved has a "hot at all time" supply of battery power as the power feed for that portion of the fuse block. This relay's power source would be from a maxi fuse or a fusible link, if equipped, all under the hood.
If the fuse block for all those is powered up with key on, then it may be a common ground problem-somewhere behind the dash.

Welcome to FixYa!
You need to replace the starter solenoid contacts, or the starter itself.
Note that the starter is UNDER the intake manifold. This is a VERY difficult job, and is not recommended to those who do not have sufficient automotive experience.
If you DO remove the intake, you MUST replace the intake manifold gaskets, or your engine will not run properly, due to air leaks at the intake mating surfaces.

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

Even though the relay is activated,I assumed you checked the out put?Also,You checked the voltage at the light sockets?With a meter,or test light ,check the fuse for the cluster lps,adjust them to dim,and to bright,the meter should act accordingly on the fuse.If it does not,replace the dimmer control,or head light switch,witch ever controls them.This may allow continuity to the tail lights as well.If the fuse is dead for the cluster lights,replacing the dimmer control,or head light switch will solve the problem,or,from another fuse ,supply voltage to the cluster lp fuse,one that is only hot with the key on,cause if you do this the dash lights will come on,every time you run the vehicle,day,or night.
