Is the solenoid contacting? If it is and the starter is not turning, gently tap the motor with a piece of wood. The brushes may be worn.

SOURCE: I have a 1996 Toyota Corolla that won't start

Radio and lights can work with weak battery, too weak to turn starter.

Noise when shutting off maybe dieseling due to fuel mixture too rich or timing off.

When you say car won't start do you mean starter turns but engine does not start, or do you mean starter does not turn.

There are contacts located inside the solenoid of the starter that fail with age.

As the contacts where down, the starter likes to 'stick' and can take many tries to start, often requiring jostling like turning the wheel.

There are two options to correct this. The first obviously is to replace the starter.
To save some money you can replace the contacts instead.

Doing this requires unhooking your battery and removing the starter from the car.
Then remove the access plate on the back of the solenoid (3 8mm bolts), take out the plunger and spring. From there you can see the copper contacts, and how they have worn. Remove the 12m and 14mm on either side of the housing and push the bolts through to release the contacts and install new in the same order they came apart.

If you are taking this to a repair shop, be advised most independent shops will just try to sell you a $450 starter. Provide them these instructions or take it to a Toyota dealer and ask for "starter contacts" and they will know exactly what you need.

bad connection from battery to car. If you hook up jumer cables adn you still have no lights, you have a bad connection. Loosen battery cables and wiggle them or take sandpaper and get a good clean connection.

It is a 1997 toyota corolla. It stuck.in park used override switch but now.will not engage starter and all power drops off. All i did was turn car.off.


Your car will not start unless it is in PARK. The reason you had to use the override switch is because the start safety circuit is dead - or more likely - the car battery is dead / has poor connections. As long as you were running the engine, the alternator was powering the car.

Put the car back into PARK. Jump start the car and it should be drivable for a short time anyway - do not drive at night as you'll need lights. Use only the accessories needed (no lights, fan, A/C, radio, etc.) and get to a shop that can test your battery & fix poor connections or replace it if needed. Otherwise, you're going to be stuck wherever your shut it off.

If the battery needs to be replaced and the connections are OK, you should be OK. If the connections are good - but the battery was bad and you had no indication of a problem previously (hard to start, etc.) - you may have something left on in your car draining the battery. Find it and shut it off!

Good luck!

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

Try your fuse panel. You must have blown the ignition fuse when replacing the starter.
