Welcome to FixYa! You need to replace the starter solenoid contacts, or the starter itself.

Note that the starter is UNDER the intake manifold. This is a VERY difficult job, and is not recommended to those who do not have sufficient automotive experience.

If you DO remove the intake, you MUST replace the intake manifold gaskets, or your engine will not run properly, due to air leaks at the intake mating surfaces.

    Hello, and welcome to FixYa. It sounds like you need eother the starter contact replaced, or a starter replacement.



    Note that the starter is located UNDER the intake manifold. You must remove the intake manifold toget to the starter. Accessing the starter is a rather difficult job, and, is recommended for those with sufficient automotive skills undertake this repair. Igure about 5 hours to do this job.

Sometimes wiggling the steering wheel left and right will let the key turn. Otherwise you may have a part of the ignition that has come loose inside.

Have a bad positive battery cable on 2000 Toyota Tundra V8


Doubt it is the Battery Cable, even with some corrosion

You do a Voltage Drop test on Cable before you remove
to examine or replace

Put Volt Meter probes on both ends of cable & see if
you drop more than .02 Volts,then it is either bad inside
or the ends need cleaning

Check Fuel Pressure. That is a more likely cause of the slow
to start or weak ignition spark

Sometimes I turn the ignition key to start my 2007 4.7 v-8 tundra pickup & I just here a click after trying several times the starter engages . Not several clicks just one . After checking battery...


The problem is the starter solenoid. It will steadily get worse until it just won't start anymore. The solenoid has corrosion between the contacts. When you turn the key the contacts are not making connection. The corrosion will get a little worse each time you crank it.

When starting my 2002 tundra, V-8 engine it sometimes just clicks or turns over very slow and other times starts right up, warm or cold. I checked the battery, and battery connection and all was good..


Check the connections to the battery, that they are shiny and clean and wire brush vigorously, if necessary at the contact points.

Remove the negative cable first.
