SOURCE: 89 toyota celica st not starting but clicking

There is either a cable not getting a very good connection, solenoid has problems, or there is a wiring leading to a relay that has a bad connections. How is your ignition? Is it loose or have loose wires?

also check the magnetic switch mounted on the starter housing, is supplied by current from the starting switch circuit of the ignition switch. This magnetic action of the switch mechanically engages the starter clutch assembly and electrically closes the heavy switch which connects it to the battery. The starting switch circuit consists of the starting switch contained within the ignition switch, a transmission neutral safety switch or clutch pedal switch, and the wiring necessary to connect these in series with the starter solenoid or relay.

SOURCE: How do I replace the Rear Brake light bulb of 2001 Toyota Sienna?

I have a 2001 Sienna and have had to replace most of my tail light bulbs.

The bulbs that are mounted in the fender (wrap arounds) have acess panels in the van's interior that easily pop out and expose the back of the light assembly.

However, the bulbs that are found in the lift gate are a different matter. You have to remove the whole interior panel to the lift gate to expose the light assemblies. Go to your auto parts store and get a tool to help pop out the plastic retainers from the lift gates metal frame. Don't force the retainers out. Go slowly and gently so that you don't damage the interior panel. If you are really gentle you might even get to reuse the retainers.

Good luck!

I have changed battery twice and alternator once. Is there a reason why a toyota sienna 2001 xle should not maintain optimum/adequate charging with full gadget load at baseline idling of 650rpm?

the Toyota's have a huge load on the charging systems, when you replace the alternator never use cheap parts NO auto-zone, or advanced get a top of the line replacement part cheap will not last on the Toyota, spend a little more and fix the problem, go to NAPA or Carquest and only buy the top line, trust me this is 25 years of experience speaking. after 5 bad alternators's in a row from auto-zone i will not not let them back in my shop if a customer brings in there own part from auto-zone we send them to the shop down the road we will not even install there own part.

I have a 2001 Sienna. I find in the morning the radio will sometimes lose it's presets. Also,the van starts fine but the odd time, when you go to start the engine, nothing happens when the key is turned. ...

If it starts without a jump, i would say it's the igntion switch that cuts off power to the radio at times. If it does need to be jumped, then replace the battery.

Starter motors can get weak and slow down over time, your vehicle is a little on the new side for that to occur but it does happen, a poor connection at the battery or a low battery can give you the same symptoms, Toyota's are one of the most relibable vehicles on the market but they need regular maintance, make sure your battery cable clamps are in good condition and clean and the connection is tight at the starter. A shop or some parts suppliers can test the starter for how many amps it is drawing and that will tell you if the starter is getting tired. There are other issues that can cause your engine to crank hard so take the time to check it right before replaceing any parts.
