Question about 2000 Toyota Corolla
I pulled the old dashboard and put the other new dashboard in , but now when i connect the battery terminals without ignition key the ignition lights are on in dash, and when i try to start the car it wont start. i think i did some thing wrong with wiring or no any idea..
My dear friend since you know that really did something which is true,why don't you ask a specialist help to avoid the risk of either blown anything vital on the rest of the car or cause a fire and loose not only the dashboard but the car as well.

I would buy a cheap Votage meter from Walmart or Radio Shack and check voltage at the Battery. It should be 12.5 or more. Red positive lead of meter goes to red Battery wire. Black lead goes to black Battery wire on top of Battery.
You can check Alternator charging too, the same way The Voltage should jump to 12.8-13.5 volts. My Toyota would shut off and then start back up after moving the connection to the big fuses in the engine compartment Good Luck.

Hello I have simular problem the ignition on is stuck in that position with the key turned off and out of the ignition switch.It feels like the key switch is spinning freely in the ignition. Do I need an ignition switch?

I will assume you have a factory Anti-Theft system. Here is the rest procedure unlock the system which was triggered by the battery change and resultant loss of power. Do the reset exactly as written.
Put the key in the ignition, and turn forward
all the way just before cranking position. Then within
5 seconds, locate, press and hold in the
valet/overide button, found under the
dash area, (push button, spring loaded)
until the installed LED (the blinking light)
in your dash area goes on solid,
and the siren chirps once.
(Your valet switch might be the toggle
(on/off) type. in this case, key on,
flip switch in opposite direction,
then turn the key off.)
This should reset the alarm, and reset
the grounded relay on the starter wire,
allowing you to start the engine.
