First use a battery charger to charge the battery, instead of a jump start. Second, with a complete dead battery you may want to pull the connection for the horn under the hood till the battery is completely charged.

No light can come up including ignation key

check vehicle battery connections for obvious corrosion. If none is present, use another vehicle and battery jumper cables-properly hooked up, and with 2nd vehicle idling, try cranking Toyota. If not immediately starting, give it a few minutes to charge toyota battery, and then try again. A fully drained battery will require several minutes charge from second vehicles charging system to sufficiently charge drained battery.

some vehicles cannot be jump started from another vehicle with the engine running on donna starter as it damages the ecu. you just use the battery or a jump starter system. so time if you remove the battery and put on charge with a battery charger the time it takes for the battery to be fully charged should give the ecu time to drain down on its components. if you leave the ignition and lights on with the battery disconnected. but only jump start without the other vehicle's engine running.

My car ran fine earlier today, I went to start it a few min. ago and i made a split second sound like it was going to start then nothing. the lights wont even turn on.

It sounds like a battery issue. New cars have a built-in voltage sensor that when it drops below a certain cranking amp level it will disconnect all power to the vehicle. It happened to me once. Try jumping it, if it starts it's the battery. Also clean the terminals as they do create a corrosive gunk around the positive terminal that cuts power from going into the wire. Some baking soda, a little water and an old toothbrush go a long way here. Also, if you have a battery terminal brush, even better. But be careful with any stuff falling on your eyes, clothes or skin.

Sounds like you have a short in your alarm or on the Positive battery cable that is grounding your battery and draining it. If this has happened more than once on this battery get a battery cell tester and test the battery cells to make sure you have developed a dead cell which will happen. When you jump the vehicle take the positive battery cable off the battery. If the vehicle continues to run the Alternator is working properly if it dies, which explains why you jump it and have to re-jump it again after driving it, the alternator or voltage regulator is malfunctioning. If you have installed a power amplifier in the vehicle that has cabling under the hood double check that for shorts and check you power wires at the ignition switch for a short.

Needs a jump every day

It sounds like the battery has a dead cell in it. Replace the battery. If you have an alarm installed remove the in line fuse from the alarm and see if that stops the battery drain.

Car won't start. turns over but stalls.

Your battery is dead.

Jump start the vehicle, remove jumper cables and see if the battery will charge... if battery does not charge then either battery is bad or alternator is not charging the battery.

Check for corroded and/or loose connections.

Also, after the vehicle starts, look for interior lamps or other power consuming equipment that may have inadvertently left on, causing the power to be drained from your battery.
