SOURCE: 2003 matrix starter relay location

The starter relay is located in the instrument panel junction block.

a couple things you can check quickly.

  1. check for power at the AM2 fuse in the instrument panel junction block. If there is power than its safe to assume the relay is getting power. if there is no power ceck the main 30 amp fuse in the under hood junction block (you owners manual will have this info as well. look for fuses in the index. You can look at an online PDF version on the toyota website)
  2. Make sure the security light is not illuminated. If the security system is active it will not allow the starter to engage.
  3. Check for power on the small wire at the starter with the key in the crank position. If there is power than the starter is bad. If there is no power let me know if you have an automatic or manual transmission and ill see if i can get you more info.

Where is the fuse relay for a 2003 Toyota Matrix


The solenoid located on the starter most likely has a wire either not connected,or open or the solenoid itself is bad(Check the wiring with known good pictures of the assembly and then use an inspection mirror to check that the wiring is securely mounted and then go from there(starter draw tests,jumper wire the solenoid itself)Its seems to be that the poles in the relaying mechanism in the solenoid aren't drawing the starter bendix in order for the spinning motor to engage the ring gear itself,thus you only hear the motor whirring but no magic,Jason...

2004 matrix will not start, turn key and will do nothing and i took the starter to be checked at the local Auto zone and it checked out fine


Does the lights go dim when you try to start the car?? If not then there is a starter relay in the fuse panel under the hood, try replacing it.The inside of the cover on the fuse box shows where the relay is located. If the lights go dim, then it's your battery is too low. It should be no less that 12.5 vdc.
