Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome to just answer
can i get some more info
will it crank over
Was this a genuine toyota brand starter that was installed?
Did you test the signal wire and cable connection before completing the installation of hte new starter? Did you bench test the new starter?
I hate to say this but the intake needs to come back off.
If you can rotate the crankshaft with a wrench then the engine will rotate and this is related to starter or starter circuit.
You need to test the small wire to the starter to be sure that the solenoid is recieving proper power.
Then bench test the starter to be sure it works, it would be very rare but the starter may likely be defective, any time I have to install a starter that is not a simple install I ALWAYS bench test it with a jumper box.
No sir I did not give up on you, most experts on this site are professional full time technicians with day jobs and post here in the evenings and freetime.
There are 2 wires at the starter on your truck.
The big fat one that is bolted to the starter with a 12mm nut is the constant hot wire from the starter. The smaller wire that plugs in with an electrical connector is the signal wire. When the key is in the "start" position you should have power at the small connector wire. If you have power at the small wire and constant/hot power on the big wire then the starter needs to be bench tested. Let me know if you need more input here, I try to check my messages often but cannot always do so during the day with a full shop.
