Sounds as if the problem with your vehicle is the battery connection.

  • Take off the terminals and clean them with a wire brush
  • Don't forget the inside of the terminals
  • After cleaning them take a little white petroleum jelly and apply to each of the two terminals.
  • Do NOT use other grease, as most contain acid and will promote oxoization

Here are a couple of quick easy thing to do to isolate what the problem is. if your battery is new and fully charged. then take a set of jumper cables and put one clamp on the negitive post of the battery and its corresponding clamp on the alternator bracket on the motor this will insure that you have a complete ground which you need to ingauge the starter. in dc current the amperage is constant and the voltage is variable. a good ground is needed.
if the charge in your battery is depleted jump the car to get it started. then remove the positive cable from the batteries possitive post if the car stays running then the altinator is charging this illiminates the alternator from being the problem. if the car stays running its good if the car dies then the altinator is bad and needs replaced.
check the wires hooked to the starter to make sure that they are not gounding out on the block or the exaust.

Motor don't turn nothing dash lights and head lights 1985toyota pu


Do the gauges and warning lights work with key on? If not, check fusible links, AM1 for ignition key power. If the gauges/warning lights work, the key switch has power, so you can follow it to the starter solenoid. The start wire out of the ignition switch is a black/white wire, this is the hot wire to the solenoid, and only has power when key is held in start. With automatics, there is only one switch-a neutral start switch- between the ignition switch and the solenoid on the starter .

With a manual transmission, the black-white start wire goes to both a starter relay and a clutch start switch (on the clutch pedal), those two work together to send the power on to the starter solenoid. So, no crank, good battery, power to key, follow the black/white wire, the start relay and the clutch switch, to the starter solenoid- a hot wire there turns the starter motor on.

Corsica won't start,


Start by checking the battery cables for corrosion at - to motor and + to battery. If all cables are good It will be the starter. the lights dimming while turning the key is normal. PS you can also give the starter a few good whacks with a hammer then try to start it.

Won't start


So it's a no crank condition? Do dash lights, gauges, and everything else work when the car won't crank over? If so, buy a cheap $5.00 testlight, and when the car won't crank, pull the small black wire off the starter solenoid. While someone holds the key in start (cranking) position and clutch pedal depressed, see if the black wire has power as it should. (Ground the testlight and just touch the wire's end terminal. If powered, the testlight will light up.) If power there, then the starter solenoid is failing. Toyota starters are very good units, but the solenoid's internal contacts get old and pitted.
If no power at the black wire, then the start circuit from ignition switch to clutch safety switch (on the clutch pedal) to starter relay to starter solenoid will have to be diagnosed. To double-check: take a single battery jumper cable and put it on the positive battery post connection. Put the other end of the jumper cable on the solenoid terminal where black wire was removed. Key can be off. Make sure car is in neutral, brake set. If starter now operates, solenoid is O.K., and it is a problem in the start circuit, -ignition switch, neutral start switch, or in the wiring.
Now find a grounding place for testlight under the dash. When car won't crank, check for power coming out of ignition switch on the black wire with white stripe. This is the start wire for the starter solenoid. Key must be in crank position. Wire shoud be powered-ignition switch is working. If no power, switch is failing. You can do the same for the clutch start switch-it's a simple switch, that when clutch is depressed switch is closed and passes power on from ignition switch to the starter relay (thus allowing power to the starter solenoid). Black wire, red stripe-this is wire from clutch switch to starter relay. When key is in crank, clutch depressed, this wire should be hot.
With me so far? Still haven't found a problem, or any loose connections? Next and last is the starter relay. It is located under dash, close to gas pedal, but under the center console, just forward and left of gear shifter. It can be tested and the wiring diagnosed there, but relays are cheap, so just swap in another and see if that helps.
If you have tried everything, and still no help, you could try a new wire from the relay to the starter solenoid. This is that black wire we started with. Older toyotas sometimes have a problem with degraded wiring not passing enough current to operate the starter

This sounds like a starter disable feature of a car alarm. Somewhere under the dash you are going to find a box with the start wires running to it. The start wire is black with a white stripe and is thick, about a 12 gauge wire. It will come from the ignition switch and run into a relay or box. It could be installed anywhere as it is aftermarket. Once you find it, you can reconnect both ends of the starter wire and you can start it with the key. I would disconnect the power to the alarm or your lights are going to flash at random. The factory alarm (just in case it is the issue, but that isn't likely) is located behind the radio and ashtray.

use a test light and follow the main supply wires going into the cars cab keep poking thru the insulation with the tester probe at regular intervals until you dont get any power. there might be a fusable link or a maxifuse somewhere blown. check fuse panel for pwoer and check the wires to and from the ignition switch.

Have you tried to start it by putting it in the neutral position? If it don't start there, it could be the ignition switch, witch is located under dash on the steering colume, assuming its an automatic.
