Question about 2002 Toyota Tacoma

1 Answer

Reversed Batter cables

I reversed battery cables when replacing the battery on a 2002 Tacoma. Now nothing happens when I turn the key (no lights or starter). Checked both fuse boxes (underhood and in dash), no blown fuses but don't know how to check relays. Did I cook the computer or could it be something more simple?

Check both fuse boxes again. You have a blown fuse somewhere and it most likely is one on the main fuses in the underhood fusebox.

Why am I having problems starting my Bravada. There is power, the started worksb, but when I turn the key nothing happens.All the dash board lights come on but no starter engagement?


do the dashboard lights go out when key turned to start? when you say nothing happens,is there a click? does the motor turn over,but not fire? is it an automatic,meaning is the gear inhibitor switch preventing starter from working?have you tried a jumper battery?putting a jumper lead from the battery earth to the engine ground helps sometimes,if earthing cables broken

Are there any main fuses on a 2001 plymouth neon


Have you checked the starter solenoid. Your battery + cable connects to this then + cable runs from it to your starter. You also have an ignition switch wire connected to this. Just follow your cable from the battery and it will lead you right to the part. Some times these will break inside or the contacts go bad inside and therefore you will not get power to start the engine, but you will have power to turn on lights or whatever other accessories.The part is about $15

My 2002 Grand Am will not start, when ignition is turned on nothing happens with the starter, not even a sound from the starter, everything else works. I took off the starter and had it checked and it...


I have a 2002 Grand Am also. I had this same problem twice. The first time it happened, the battery was still working but was not strong enough to crank the car or make any noise under the hood at all. All electrical stuff worked though (lights, radio, etc). So i bought a new battery and everything was back to normal.

The 2nd time this happened, the passlock system was shot (the passlock system is a type of security device the car has installed in it.) When i inserted the key, everything worked, but nothing coming from the engine. I had to take the car to a dealership and get it replaced for around $400. If you look online you can find other ways to avoid the dealership and fix it yourself, but that could result in making something else not work as well.

Hope this helps in some way.

the problem is likely the starter when they get old heat can cause them to malfunction.
