Which fuse is popping? That particular fuse that is popping is either shorting or getting a sporadic ground. Hope this helps.

Is this the solution for a starter motor that whirs and does not engage?
Coincedentally the bottom water hose of the radiator leaks, so must have been running hot.

SOURCE: How do I change the starter in a 2000 Toyota Camry LE

i'm sure it's not the starter itself that is the problem, have the stater's solenoid might be stucked. It's quite a lot of work removing the starter but you can do it if you are willing enough to learn. You just need the right idea and tools to do it. Hope this will help save you bucks!

Try moving gear lever from park to neutral then starting, if does not start check starter relay, solenoid or ignition switch, contacts could be worn

SOURCE: i have a 1990 toyota

the wiring harness under the truck on the d side may be laying on the exhaust and it goes to the o2
sensor and also if it is a 4 cylinder it could be the harness laying across the fuel rail shorting to ground on the rail.

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

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.

Mini Wini on a 1987 Toyota. New battery. Won't start.

Well if you replaced the starter solenoid it sounds like something as simple as a bad battery connection,I would take both battery cables loose and clean them off with something like some 100-150 grit sandpaper or they make a battery and battery wire connection cleaning tool.

You may need to pull the starter,alot of times when they remanufacture a starter they just do a basic test on the solenoid and if it checks they don't replace it.Toyota starters use a bell shaped copper contact that is prone to wear and corrosion,I drive a Toyota myself and had this exact problem.

Yes, that would be the Starter. It is on the Lower part of the Motor on the Passenger Side. Should not be that hard to Change out.

No start conditon

Hey there lucifer823,

Yes, it's electrical.
Let's narrow it down a bit. This procedure will either locate or rule out 90% of starter problems.

Checking Starter function:
  • Run a wire (at least 12 ga w/ alligator clip) to the START terminal (the smaller one, not the battery connector) of the Starter Solenoid.
  • Make sure you and any tools are clear of moving engine parts. Check again that the IGNITION is OFF. Momentarily touch the other end of the wire to the positive battery post.
  • The starter should turn over. If it does, leave the wire, it will be useful in upcoming tests.
  • If it doesn't, The starter or the solenoid is bad. Pull it.You can bench check the starter with jumper cables. Negative to the body, positive to the heavy terminal on the solenoid that goes to the starter. If the starter works, only the solenoid is bad (good news, they're cheaper). If it doesn't, replace the starter.
  • If it only clicks, the battery is low.
Let me know what you find out. We'll pick it up from there.

Remember: good things come to those who Rate

Now what? Changed alternator but car still won't start.

a dropped/disconected starter solenoid cable is a good candidate, a heavy cable runs from the battery to the starter, a lighter cable runs from the ignition to the starter solenoid, the ignition key throws the solenoid which engages the starter pinion gear in the flywheel, and connects the cable to spin the starter motor. even loose may not be producing enoug current to fully engage the starter.
there is a fusible link in the battery cable that is a good candidate.
if the battery were disconnected during alternator changeover, look for loose cables at the battery posts, and corrosion on the posts.
if the battery was not disconnected look for collapsed positive plates on one or more cells of the battery..
