Question about 2006 Toyota Corolla
I have a 2006 corolla. having trouble starting, starter sometimes engages, otherwise, get clicking noise. seems like battery doesn't have enough charge to turn over starter. last time when the starter engaged and the car started, drove around for about 10 miles shutting the car off and starting without trouble 4 to 5 times. last time driving the engine quit twice, both while making turns, first one turning left, second one turning right. the first time it quit, while driving, shifted to neutral while still rolling and started back up. second time, quit completely and has not started on its own without jumping it. the indicator on the battery says its okay. took off battery cables, cleaned terminals and connections, still no start, just clicking. am taking to autozone for them to test battery for a short. connections to alternator don't seem loose.
Remove the starter & inspect the contacts inside the starter solenoid housing. If they are burnt and/or worn, you will get this condition. Replace the contacts and the plunger, or replace the starter. I change contacts in my shop 3-4 times a week. Quite a common failure. The clicking noise is the plunger hitting one contact, but not the other, due to wear.
