SOURCE: 2006 tundra. turn key doesn't start. everything

Just because a tech is working in a dealership does not mean he is better than a good tech in another shop (though he has more and better information available).
I suspect that you have an electrical connection that is partially making contact (either loose or corroded). Your starter draws more amperage from the battery than any other component. That will cause a bad contact to disconnect, while using other components will not.
You need to begin by checking each connection, beginning at the battery (grounds are just as important as hot leads).Test with a volt meter. Any voltage drop from static battery voltage (volts read directly at the battery terminals) should be investigated. As you get further from the battery you may see a slight drop because each connection and the length of the wire itself will "eat" some power. But the loss should never exceed 1/2 volt. (and that's a lot). Always check the battery after it has been fully charged and load tested to make sure it's good. Any further testing depends on that in order to be accurate. Make sure the starter relay is good and that any fuses and fuse contacts are clean. If the readings you get art normal, test again with the key turned to the start position (keep hands etc clear of the fan and drivebelt when doing that as if it decides to turn, you could get hurt) To understand the starter circuit better, you can buy a chiltons manual ...the wiring diagrams will show you what attaches to what, and, the manual will be useful to solve other future problems.
Any questions about a specific part can be answered if you ask.
Good luck and be patient...Intermittent problems can be a real pain, even if you do this work every day!!!

SOURCE: crossed battery cables on 2006 tundra now

not sure, you could test it. Alternatively, I think I'd first be looking more at the starter solenoid and test that.
Best regards

Starter problems, Suggestions???

Starters tend to fail intermittently. Yes, if it started after a "whack", I woul suggest replacing your starter. Make sure all connections are tight and of course clean terminals and cables.

06 4.0 v6 tundra won't start tried jumping it it just clicks once I unplugged the cables no power?

jumped with other car running?
if it clicks,
we next hot wire the starter solenoid,
if it clicks now with good battery (or running jump), it's a
1: bad starter. or 2: seized engine (turn by hand? yet)
if it cranks fast now hot wired, the KEY line is dead
ask how to fix either.

Replaced battery on my 2006 Ford Escape. Still won't start but everything else works

Figure by everything else you mean the radio,lights,etc? Is the engine turning over? What happens when the key is fully engaged? If the engine does not turn over the first place to look would be your fuses. Ensure that none look to be burnt or blown.If so replace and try again.If fuses look good Next step would be to ensure starter connection is good and starter is turning over.If the starter is not turning over then I would focus on it.Hope this helps.
