Question about 1997 Toyota Corolla
Wont start,no sounds no power,copletely dead
You will need a volt meter to figure this one out. Battery voltage? Should be above 12 volts, and while you are trying to "crank" the engine over, if it's still over 12, you need to see if that power is getting to the starter motor. If it goes below 9 or 10 volts, you either have a bad battery, or the starter motor is shorted, or bad.
To test the starter, you should have a large wire going to the starter that has 12 volts all of the time from the battery. A smaller wire will have 12 volts only when the key is turned to "start". If you have these and a good ground, the starter motor is bad.
