Possible starter. Contact Toyota and check for recalls on your car.

that is a starter solenoid problem.

starter has its own solenoid. the big round thing besides the real motor.

it has contacts inside which could be worn out .

that is why sometimes it make contact and sometimes not.

tnx 4 using fixya,

SOURCE: won't even "click" nor " crank" when trying to start .

Agree, it sounds like the starter and it happens often on old Camry. When was the last time you had the starter replaced? The cartalk guys once suggested getting a mallet and bang on the starter and it will work. Eventually you will need a replacement. It is way cheaper to go to junkyard and get a used one (ask them to test before buy).

SOURCE: 1994 Toyota Tercel Starter Problems

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

SOURCE: when I turn the key my starter just clicks once or

The click indicates that not enough power is going to your starter to engage it, much less spin the engine. If you are POSITIVE your battery is good, then you likely have a bad connection at either the battery, the selenoid, or the starter. You must check and clean all connections, not only positive but grounds as well, from the battery to the starter and from the ground post to your ground on the car. Good Luck! I hope you find this very helpful!

My 07 chevy colorado will not start just clicking of starter when holding the ignition down and while holding the ignition down the gauges jump as if Its to dead to start . It will start if someone gives...

If your battery has been tested OK, and Bosch is a very good battery by the way, then a clicking sound from the starter motor contactor means it is not getting sufficient current. This means a bad conductivity somewhere. If the engine turns over when you use a jump start from another vehicle, it suggests that there is enough energy to overcome the poor conductivity. The most likely culprit is the inside of the battery terminal connectors, which may have a layer of contaminant which is limiting the good connection. Clean the inside of the terminal connectors with an abrasive action and make sure the bolts are tight. Failing that, the same problem may exist where the cable from the battery joins the starter motor. Check both the primary circuit (through ignition key relay) and the secondary circuit which carries the starting current. This, unfortunately usually means getting to a hard to access place (where the starter motor is mounted) Good luck. Cheers, Don.

Car ran fine until I pulled into driveway. After I turned off ignition it wouldnt start again.

Have the battery tested and clean the battery cables. Just because it reads 12 volts doesn't mean it can supply power under a load.. Autozone and others test batteries for free

Car won't start. battery good, all electrical components in cab work along with headlights. what can it be

Check for power at the starter solenoid with key in crank position. Use a testlight or voltmeter to see if 12 volts is there. The circuit path is from ignition switch to neutral safety switch (automatics), or clutch safety switch (manual) and then to starter relay, if used, and to the starter solenoid.
If no power at solenoid in start, check your fuses in the power distribution box by battery. If car has any fusible links around battery, check them also for melted insulation or appearance of burning. If you do have power at solenoid in crank, the solenoid must be bad and needs replacing.

My 1999 mitsubishi diamante will not start. I got a friend to jump it but it still would not start. I took the battery out and took it to autozone to charge it. But autozone would not charge it because...

It sounds like you need a new starter. If you hear the starter click when you turn the key to start, replace your starter since you already replaced the battery. You might want to have your alternator checked out, or when you get your car started, test the battery terminals with a multimeter. You should have around 14 volts with the car running. If not, you will need a new alternator. The alternator won't keep the car from starting though, unless the battery was drained because it wasn't charged. Even then it is the battery keeping the car from starting.

If the starter is not clicking, check your fuses under the hood. If all checks out, you may have a bad ignition switch.

Fx45. Won't start. Took out battery had it tested and it is good-all lights radio work when try to start it . Took key out of intelligent key to try to start it-it clicks but won't start- any ideas?

Hi, first try a jump start. If it will jump satrt, clean and tighten the battery terminals. If it will not jump start, take the starter/solenoid out and have it tested at your local parts chain. For more info, please see my tip at . Please let me know if you need instructions or have any other questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Willnot start pulled starter bench tested ok

Check all cables to the starter and the ground or negative cable from the battery to the engine or frame. They get old and break down between the insulation and you wont get enough current to start the car

Pt wont start or turn over

try to get a jump from a friend and see what happens, does the same, faulty starter, may need replacing, try to use small hammer and tap lightly on the starter couple time and have a friend start the car while you tap lightly on it. check ignition switch where you stick the key in. stick the key in the ignition and turn the key back and forth jiggle and wiggle it and see if your igniting will make contact. do it several time to test and see if its the ignition problems, this part is not cheap to replace.
