Toyota Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and thank you for trusting us with your question. I'm DJ.
Does the dashboard light up? Do the headlights work?
Is this a manual or automatic transmission?
Have you tried shifting into neutral and trying to start the truck?
Were the starter and the starter relay replaced in an attempt to get the engine to start?
Is there anything else on the truck that doesn't work?
In the fuse box under the hood is a large fuse marked AM2. It's a 30 amp fuse. Can you check to see if the fuse looks blown?
Also have you got a volt meter or a test light. I'm assuming that you'll be working on this yourself. Is that right?
Yikes. This is a hard one.
Pull out the starter relay and use a wire and jumper terminal 5 to terminal 3. This should activate the starter.
They are placed like this.
To the top one and the bottom one.
Let me know what happens.
Check for power at terminal 5.
Let's try running power directly to the starter solenoid. Pull the black wire off the solenoid and hook a wire from there to the positive post on the battery. This should spin the starter.
Did this activate the starter?
