1987 Toyota PU

My battery was dead and I was trying to be jumped offf and the hot and cold was switched. Nothing would happen after that.
I got a new battery and also replaced the coil and the points.
The car will turn over but will not fire.
I also replaced all the fuses that was bad.
Does anyone have any tips that would get this truck to start?

Begin with routing checks with a multimeter or 12 volts bulb tester determin if you got voltage on 12 volt side of the coil secondly check the fuel pump to see if ifs working by losening the line on the carburetor or injector what ever you carry ensure that your points is set and gapped properly make certain that all ignition lights shows up when ignition is switch on that would help you figure which fuse is burn if there's any check for broken wires on battery terminals sometimes you might have to tug on it a bit to be certain.
try this for now

I have a 2007 Toyota Highlander. We came back from a trip and the vehicle would not start. I went to jump it and the alarm went off. I disconnected the jumper cable and it stopped. When I reconnected...


Sounds like a bad battery. If the battery is OK than lock and unlock your Toyota with your fob. If it is still dead than take the better terminal cables off and touch the negative and positive cables together while both are disconnected and away from battery terminals. Should reset your anti theft system. Connect the cables back and try to start. again. If no crank likely bad battery. If battery is OK but no crank then it is the starter.

WHEN I TURN THE KEY JUST CLICKS HAS NEW STARTER NEW SOLENOID NEW BATTERY


Is your new battery fully charged? Maybe you need to go slow with a step-by-step process.

The most common cause of a non-starting car is the battery. It is either weak, (low voltage) dead, (zero voltage) or has bad connections. (corroded or loose) I will assume you have a fully charged battery with good connections. (both to battery and starter relay)
If you remove the starter switch lead (small wire) from the starter relay and apply +12v from the battery to its respective prong or lead on the relay, and your starter cranks, your starter switch is faulty. (not to be confused with your key switch). If you jump the two large wires together on the relay and it cranks, then the relay is faulty. If you jump the two large wires together and nothing happens, then starter is faulty, or wires to starter are loose or broken. Picture of starter switch prong on the relay is pictured. NOTE: sparks are to be expected, so don't be too scared.

I just recently replaced my altinator and battery and everytime i try to start it its dead what are some possible problems?


possible problems are endless, could be the voltage regulator, could just be some sort of drain in the electrical system ie a dome light that is burnt out but maybe the switch is in the on position. when you jump it it starts up? Does it click when you try and start it? It could be the starter or starter solenoid and not a power issue. hope this helps

Just bought a new battery.Whenever i turn anything on a/c,radio,headlights,the red charge lite comes on.Wont start without a jump.When it was running i took the terminals off the battery & nothing...


Never take the cable off when running. Its so hard on the voltage reg. And the alternator. Take the alternator and get it tested free at auto-zone or O rilleys. they test mine free all the time. Hope this is helpfull .. Sawdust46

Car is dead


Well to start with the car would start if hooked up to another for jumpstarting.....This is what you should do....First before hooking up cables turn on your headlights ,,probably they didnt turn on cause of dead battery...turn them off and hook up cables ,prior to trying to start, turn on lights again if still no lights which is what i predict means faulty connection either with cables or corroded or loose terminals attatched at battery...clean and tighten as necesary and repeat procedure....Good Luck

Won't start - Starter or ignition or what?


It could be the ignition going out. To test the ignition you would have to get a volt meter and find the hot wire to the ignition. When nothing happens when you turn the key, test the hot wire going out of the ignition that eventually goes to the starter. Your ignition is just like a light switch, just a little more complex. You will have to find the wire that connects the switch to the starter to see if the switch is working properly. If when you try to start the car see how many volts you are getting. It should be at 0 until you try to start the car. then it should jump up to either 12 or 24 volts depending on what your start used to start the vehicle. A lose wire from the battery can cause these same problems however. I would start with that and make sure you have good clean battery posts and connections. Then check to make sure they are tight. Then get into the ignition switch checks.
