Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. When you say it does not start, do you mean that the engine does not spin over?

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The key will not make the ignition even click. It does nothing. Can it be a fuse?
Toyota Mechanic: Toyota Service, Toyota Expert replied 2 years ago

Yes. There is a very large amperage fuse in the fuse panel under the hood. Might be labeled ALT or MAIN. 80 amps or bigger. Rectangular cartridge with a clear plastic window to see the fusible wire.

The flashers came on and the horn alarm and can't turn be turned off. I disconected the horns.
Toyota Mechanic: Toyota Service, Toyota Expert replied 2 years ago

oh. That means that the security system has activated. Is your alarm a Toyota unit or non-Toyota?

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
That fuse is OK there is a 40amp fuse just outside the fuse box with one wire going into it but no wire coming out. It that correct?
Toyota Mechanic: Toyota Service, Toyota Expert replied 2 years ago

I think that is ok. Let's do this: Get in the truck. Put the key in the ignition. Turn the key to ON, wait one second. Turn the key to off . one second later, repeat this 4 more times and then try to start. This is the defeat for the Toyota alarm.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
That didn't do anything. I also realized my flashers are on and will not turn off.
Toyota Mechanic: Toyota Service, Toyota Expert replied 2 years ago

If the flashers are on and wont shut off, this is the sign that the alarm system is active. The flashers are part of the alarm. If the sequence I gave you does not work, you may not have a Toyota alarm system

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Toyota Mechanic: Toyota Service, Toyota Expert replied 2 years ago

It is easy to miss the sequence. The on off on is at one second intervals. On and then off 5 times

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I'll try again. What is supposed to happen?
Toyota Mechanic: Toyota Service, Toyota Expert replied 2 years ago

It should start when you turn the key to start after the 5th on/off sequence

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I tried it two more times and still didn't work.
Toyota Mechanic: Toyota Service, Toyota Expert replied 2 years ago

You might not have the Toyota system.

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I just tried it again and I did hear a very slight beep after the 5th time but still didn't start. What's next?
Toyota Mechanic: Toyota Service, Toyota Expert replied 2 years ago

You need to ascertain what type of alarm system you have

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
How?
Toyota Mechanic: Toyota Service, Toyota Expert replied 2 years ago

This would involve disassembly of the underside of the dashboard and steering column. Trace the wires form the ignition switch to the controller box

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Toyota Mechanic: Toyota Service, Toyota Expert replied 2 years ago

You might want to leave that to a Toyota tech.

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
There must be an easier way to find out what type. Where is the location of the controller box under the hood or under the dashboard?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
does that mean there is nothing else to try?
Toyota Mechanic: Toyota Service, Toyota Expert replied 2 years ago

Under the dash board on the driver side or under the driver seat.

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
There is nothing under the driver seat
Toyota Mechanic: Toyota Service, Toyota Expert replied 2 years ago

It would be under the dash on the driver side. You will need ot take the lower part of the dash off

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Are you sure that's the problem?
Toyota Mechanic: Toyota Service, Toyota Expert replied 2 years ago

Without looking at it, that is what I believe. It is also the first thing I would be looking at if this vehicle was in my shop.

This will take a while will you still be her when I come back?
Toyota Mechanic: Toyota Service, Toyota Expert replied 2 years ago

I will be online more hour.

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I'm not set up with the proper tools to take the dash apart. If we end this conversation, how much will I be charged?
Toyota Mechanic: Toyota Service, Toyota Expert replied 2 years ago

Nothing. You are not charged at this point in time
