Hi,
You need to check that there is 12V power to start terminal on the starter motor when ignition is turned to the start position. If there is then you will need to check the starter motor, it may need the solenoid replaced. If there isn't 12v power to the terminal on the starter solenoid then you need to check the ground cables etc.
Let me know if you need more help.
Thanks
Jason

These trucks have a starter with an integral solenoid. The contacts are prone to wear and they cause exactly the problem you describe. You can easily replace just the contacts if you remove the starter and then the contact cover. The contacts are available at Toyota or any good parts store. Here's a really good website that describes the problem and procedure:

Thanks for choosing FixYa. OK, If the battery, starter, and fuses and relays are all new, you need to check all your connections. Make sure your terminals are cleaned and tight on the post. If you have no power to your vehicle, you have a issue with the charging system. You need to check the battery, alternator,, and starter wires. You may need to test them with a voltage meter just to make sure they are getting power. Since all these parts are new, I would expect a wiring problem. It may be something different with similar symptoms. You need fuel, air, and fire to start the truck. When you turn the key and hear nothing, it can only be between the ignition fuse/relay, battery, starter solenoid, and the starter. If it is cranking, it could be a fuel issue or ignition system issue. You may have an issue with your ignition module. You could have a loose wire or bad ignition box. Have you tried to get any codes off the truck?

2001 tundra v6 auto 2wd. the gauages, turn signal, ac, and radio all quit working all of a sudden. have checked all the fuses (both hot and grounds) and all are good


All those things have in common is the ignition switch, that only in accessory, or on (run), or start, allows power to that portion of the fuse block protecting those circuits, everyone you mentioned that quit.
Use a test light or voltmeter, pick a fuse -gauges. With key on, the fuse should show power on it, and across it if the fuse is good. If it doesn't have voltage to it, trace it back to how the ignition switch turns that portion of the fuse panel on (possibly a relay-ignition or accessory relay...I'm guessing), and further, whether any relay involved has a "hot at all time" supply of battery power as the power feed for that portion of the fuse block. This relay's power source would be from a maxi fuse or a fusible link, if equipped, all under the hood.
If the fuse block for all those is powered up with key on, then it may be a common ground problem-somewhere behind the dash.

2001 isuzu rodeo doesnt always start. new


Dirty terminals, happens all the time. Did you have the battery tested? Or just know it's OK? Did you check the water? How about the electrolytes? Get the terminals cleaned off with a wire brush, and scrape the insides, make sure they are tight. I have replaced more batteries this week, must be the weather. One was stone dead, 5 volts and still started the car?? Couldn't believe it, good car. The other 2 were dead with 12+ volts but wouldn't start anything, both got new terminals, and both got cleaned up. NO problems. Check it out. Lastly, the solenoid in the starter could be bad if everything else checks out, whack it with a hammer while turning the key, if it jumps, you found it.

My tundra wont start but all the lights and radio


That might be a possibility. Asssuming when you say it wont start you mean it won't crank over. First check battery voltage at the battery with a dvm when you turn the key to the start position. Then check the voltage at the starter when you turn the key to the start position. If both readings are the same and you must have a reading of at least 12dcv. Try turning the ignition key to the on position( not the start) and jump the positive voltage from the starter to the solenoid terminal. The starter should crank over if the proper voltage is present.If the starter just clicks or just attemps to start. yes, you need to replace your starter

Our 2001 lincoln ls was running fine, then all of a sudden now it wont start. we have replaced the battery, and everything else turns on, it is just hard to turn the key and it wont start--and it was all...


I would love to answer this question but I am having the same issue. I have a 2000 LS with the V8..replaced the battery about 2 weeks ago and last night I went to go home and it won't start. All the bells ring when I turn the key but when I turn to the right to "start" position, nothing. No clicking, no noise at all. I called the Lincoln dealership and we went over the alarm light "not flashing" and shifter position. They have no advice other than "tow it in".
The vehicle had been running fine.

Car won't start; Replacement Key from GM or Starter Bad?


Check the cylinder, maybe the magnetic spot is not contacting the correct area of the cylinder. Cylinder may be loose, also poosibly bad computer chips on the keys.
