How to install a starter on a 2006 toyota corolla?

They only have 2 bolts holding them in. Unbolt/unclip the wires from the starter and then remove those 2 bolts. Replacing it is the same process in reverse.

Hooked up jumper cables backwards .fried main fuse replaced it everything comes on but when i turn ignition switch nothing happens no power drain no clicking starter does not turn over what other comp

The short answer is no. The PCM would not control the starter.
I would look for more fuses or fuseable link wires. There should be more than one major fused circuit.
If the key switch was on when you connected the jumper cables anything that was "on" would have been cooked, including the ignition switch.
is the battery good enough to crank the engine ?

My 2001 corolla does not start when cranked. This morning I turned the key and nothing, then tried it again and viola. But this evening while running errands had the same situation. I've recently...

****SEE SAFETY NOTE BELOW**** If NO LIGHTS AT ALL....CHECK THE GROUND first not only on the battery but where it attached to the frame and engine. If your terminals have not been cleaned to a bright silver look not going to make good connection. IF you have power and you hear a little click NOTE sometimes you hear nothing though, it may be the STARTER throw-out SOLENOID that engages the Starter to the flywheel. Also check the POSITIVE connection to the STARTER if you HAVE lights and hear/ or the starter does NOTHING check for loose connection (on the starter you will need 2 wrenches or could break the brush in the starter ***DISCONNECT*** THE BATTERY BEFORE ATTEMPTING) . Once done spray terminal sealer on them to HELP keep them from corroding nothing is perfect. ****SAFETY NOTE ****WHEN DEALING WITH THE POSITIVE ( + ) WIRE/TERMINAL AT ANY TIME but ESPECIALLY TO THE STARTER... if you touch a WRENCH from it to ground not only do you SPARK but you could WELD THE WRENCH TO THE GROUND AND YES CALL 911 BECAUSE YOU "WILL" HAVE A FIRE ON YOUR HANDS VERY, VERY QUICKLY ! CAN'T SAY IT ENOUGH DISCONNECT THE GROUND ( - ) BATTERY LEADS BEFORE WORKING ON ELECTRICAL SYSTEM IF IN DOUBT TEST WITH A TESTER**** hope I helped

Wont start

Bryan, 1st check that the battery connections are clean and tight, and also the same for starter connections (starter is positioned between the engine and transmission, probably has 2-3 bolts and wiring connections. Have you had the battery tested? Don't buy a starter until you do. The lights and radio can work, but the battery could be undercharged enough to not be able to crank the engine over (you are correct that the 'clicking' sound is classic bad or low charge battery, but check the above 1st). A parts store can do a free check if you pull it out and bring it down. After checking the connections, try to jump start the car. Good luck. Hope this helps.

I have a 2005 Toyota Corolla that won't start

Do the ignition lights come on when the key is turned ?
If so I would be looking at the starter motor .....There should be 2 wires going to it , A big heavy one and a little one.
Make sure the little wire hasn't fallen off the terminal on the starter..It's this wire that powers the solenoid and in turn the solenoid powers the starter.
Let me know how you get on .

1999 Toyota Corolla CE. For about 2 months, the engine does not start immediately. I need to turn the ignition key several times until it starts. Each time when I turn the key, a clicking sound happens...

it sounds like either your having a short at the starter or the ignition switch is bad, I am leaning towards the issue being the starter, usually when the ignition switch is going bad there will be no click,
