Why wont my 2004 scion xb turn over battery is fine


Starter is probably defective as car is 12 years old, this would be a normal component to go. just for the heck of it, move the shift er through the gears and put back in park aggressively, just in case safety neutral switch may had gone slightly out of adjustment.
below are some informative diagnostic links.

Remote starter only allows my starter to turn over twice; needs at least 3 with my key. How to adjust to have it starter run longer on remote?


I know you are looking to have the remote starter run a third time but I would say you need to look at your Fuel Pressure Regulator on the Scion. Sounds like it is not holding fuel pressure at the fuel rail and that is why it requires a third Crank

You car have security system.first locate the security light and make sure goes OFF after unlocking the car
turn the key and monitor the instrument cluster if all the light stay on
apply parking brake and whit left hand turn to starting position and with right sift from PARK to NEUTRAL
locate the starter and connect test light to small signal wire,other end to ground. let helper start the car. did the light go ON?(replace the starter)

My scion xb 2005 wont start i charged the battery for 30 min or so and still wont start but i can turn on the radio, lower the windows, and start the air conditioner(does not get cold)


Still possibly a battery fault, radio uses about .3 amp, windows 3-5 amps, STARTER needs approx 30 amps. So a bad battery will power the auxiliaries but not the starter. Try a boost start from a known good battery and take it from there.

My scion xb is struggling to start


Get the battery checked. It may be low on power and just need a charge or just old and in need of replacement. Dealerships and other stores like AutoZone and Advance Auto Parts can run these tests for you,

My scion xb 2004 doesn't start!


it could be a billion things...might have to specify that is it doing...
if it doesn't start but cranks...then check the starter,battery,and the alternator...
it could also be the fuel pump isn't pumping fuel in to the engine...so you need to check that too...
Good Luck!
