New starter and battery, and no power on a 2003 Toyota Corolla

I just replaced the starter and the battery on my 2003 Toyota Corolla. When I attempted to start it, there was a pop, then it lost all electrical power. I have checked every fuse, and they are all good. Is there an in-line fuse somewhere going to the power distribution box?

I am not familer with this exact car but 2 things to look for, Many of the Jap cars have a main fuses. usually located near the battery, ina small fues box there will be a wire that attaches to the positive batt cable that goes to this little fues box It usually powers the IGN circut which powers the starting circut. .. on Americsan cars they use a fuseable link which is a piece of wire that burns out when a live positive wire is shorted out. in place of burning the whole wiring harness. its easy to see this problem since the wire will be burnet in half..

Being that this happened tells me that you have a short probably at or near the starter.that is blowing the fuse or burning the fuseable link. Look for this short or it will just burn out the fuse again.

Have you checked to se if there is freon in the system? If there is no freon, the compressor will NOT run.

SOURCE: car will not start

Try running a wire from the little terminal of the starter motor to the Positive on the battery , Disconnect the little wire thats on there first.No need to turn the key on as we are bypassing this.This should cause the starter to turn.Make sure that if its a manual that its in Neutral.
If the starter motor turns then the problem is either the relay or the ignition switch.Or if its an automatic Transmission it could be the inhibitor switch .
Hope this helps
Cheers
George

SOURCE: where is the fuse box on a 2003 Toyota Corolla?

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

The fusebox for an 03 Corolla is on the driver's side of the dash, above the plastic panel that is above your knees. You can see it by looking up and to the left, under the instrument pane, with a flashlight. It is a rather large white or cream-coloured box (depending on where the car was produced). An easier way to get to the fuses would be to remove the plastic trim panel that is directly under the bottom of the instrument panel.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance today.

Have you checked the key switch and the neutral safety switch for power ? Its possible jumping the battery was just a coincidence.
There is also a possibility the starter is not good even tho you have replaced it.

I have a 2003 Toyota corolla and my car won't


Same thing happened to me. Turned out to be a blown Alt fuse (under the hood behind the battery, you'll have to unbolt the whole fuse box though. That fuse is bolted in from underneath) and a blown am2 fuse (look underneath the dash of the driver side from inside the car). I switched those out and the car started right up

you need to see how far the power is getting through the circuit. you will need a volt meter and maybe a friend to help. so start at the small wire on the starter. this should have power when you turn the ignition key. no power? then move to starter relay, no power? then move to neutral safety switch, still no power? ignition switch and fuse or fusable link or fuse box connection, wire connections. just approach it like water flowing though a pipe- but somewhere on the pipe there is a break in the pipe (circuit).

You can jump relays or switches just to prove to yourself that the starter can turn over.

Where is the starter for a 2003 toyota corolla located? Thanks!


Hi,
Standing in front of your Corolla with the hood open ,the starter is located right below the intake manifold(curvy tube like looking ) This is in the center of the engine.
A plastic water guard underneath the car prevents you from seeing the starter from below.
That water shield will need to be removed to access the starter.

Hmmm. Don't be too hasty replacing the starter. With no exterior lights working it suggests an open circuit in the system that could relate to your starting problem. Start with your fuses that are related to lighting and starting. Check connections for corrosion and rust.
