So your telling me that this car is a stick and you can't pop the clutch to start it ? Correct?
I'm gonna give you a list of thing to check, good luck.

a)Do you have crank no start? (see entire write up)
b)No crank no start?, ( battery, battery cables, ignition switch,,starter relay)
c)No dash lights, no crank? (battery, battery cables ignition switch)
If you have symptom A then the affected items are , ignition switch, battery, battery cables, starter, starter relay ,coil, coil pack, ignition module ,Distributor cap ,rotor, (if applicable) spark plugs and wires.
The best thing to do is to first make sure your timing belt didn't break. As long as the engine cranks you can do this. Give the battery a 3 min charge . Then have a helper crank the vehicle while you observe the rotation of all the pulley's and belts. They must rotate together. If the vehicle has a distributor remove the cap ground the coil wire and watch the rotor as the engine is cranked. it should spin. If this is a-ok your worse nightmare is over.
Now we have eliminated the timing belt as being a cause. We now have to charged the battery again for three min and load test it( this is best done by a repair shop a load tester is expensive .If the battery if more than 5yrs old you may want to replace it.
If battery does not pass load test replace it.
Whatever you decide the rest of the items can NOT be checked out without a fully charged battery.
Check ignition switch and starter relay for B+ going to them and leaving them. Check starter circuit. Make sure B+ is making it to starter ( use a digital voltmeter). If B+ (12 volts) is making it to the starter and it doesn't crank then the starter is defective. Do a starter current draw test to verify this or remove the starter and have it bench tested.
If starter cranks now your into coil testing .
Pull a spark plug hook it up to a spark tester and ground it, now crank the engine if you get spark coil is ok and in all likelihood so is module.
If you don't get spark test for spark at the coil wire.
If you get spark here and don't get it at the spark plug wire problem is at distributor cap , rotor or spark plug wire. If plugs look bad use a fresh plug to do testing and naturally replace them.
If all of the above are a-ok.
Next is fuel checks.
Easiest fuel check is to put key into ignition cylinder and turn to on position. Lister for pump to buzz or hum. if it doesn't then check fuel pump relay for B+ going to it and leaving it and going to the pump. If B+ making it to pump and it doesn't turn on the pump is your problem. If B+ not making it to pump either the relay or the ignition switch is defective.
Naturally if the pump is defective have a repair shop do the repair . Its dangerous and a real pain.
Good Luck
IN YOUR CASE I BELIEVE YOU NEED A NEW BATTERY UNLESS THIS ONE IS FAIRLY NEW.

SOURCE: 1992 toyota tercell wont start,

Does the engine turn over at all when you try to start it?

Check the wires going to your starter solenoid to make sure everything is secure. If all wires are secure, remove the starter and take it to Autozone to get the starter and solenoid tested.

Your starter or solenoid is probably bad.

I also have a 92 tercel. The starter is on the back side of the engine/transmission near the firewall.

I think two 15mm screws hold it on. And its easier to get to and remove from the drivers side of the engine. Remove the duct going to the intake manifold and the air cleaner assembly(the plastic thing that the air filter is inside) to be able to pull it out more easily. And unplug the sensor on the back of the air cleaner housing. After you pull out the air filter, there are 3 screws that hold the air filter housing on. On the very bottom of the filter housing.

1994 tercel overheated now wont start


I answered this with a lengthy explanation.. about blowing your head gasket do not run a car when it over heats it will cost you a engine.. wait until it cools down to add water and most likely you need a new thermostat or you already have a blown head gasket .. this is much cheaper then an engine do not drive car when HOT.

1992 toyota tercel turns but wont start


running out of ideas, try spray trhotle body cleaner while some one try to start the car, if it runs then your problem is in fuel pump circuit or pump, by pass or jump fuel pump relay and check fuel pressure, check at relay socket your signal from ignition switch it must be hot all times(ignition on) also check your ground points, clean then if excesive resistance, good luck.

Wont start, no spark,ignition coil tested good,


with the key on what is your voltage to the positive side of the coil? Should be around 12V. If not I would look at your igniter. If I remember right its located on the firewall drivers side just above the brake booster. Check and see if you have power there.

Fuel problem


first i would cover the basics. change the fuel filter, next change the spark plugs, careful this car takes special spark plugs. probably have to get from toyota. next clean the throttle body, pull air nozzle off and open the butterfly so you can spray throttle body cleaner in their and clean with toothbrush. also dont be alarmed after cleaning the throttle body and changing the fuel filter it will be hard starting, hold the gas pedal half way.
