Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Thank you for trusting us with your questions. Do you have a digital volt meter or a 12 volt test light so we can test for power at some of the fuses in the fuse box? Can you be more specific about the fusible link assembly you replaced. Was it the bus bar? A picture would help me see exactly what you've already done.
Check this picture. Was the fusible link you replaced unit A or unit B?
Patience is a virtue. To give you the best and most accurate information, I have to look up specific information just for your particular vehicle. Unfortunately, today's modern vehicle is very complicated and you really don't want me guessing on things without having found the EXACT information for your vehicle.
Is this a smart key vehicle, or a conventional key?
Does the green light on the start button come on when you enter the vehicle and step on the brake pedal? Do the brake lights operate when you step on the brake pedal?
At the starter, there are 2 connectors. First one is a large wire coming directly from the battery and is attached with a lug held on by a nut. Check it, and make sure it has battery voltage to it Using a volt meter. Next, we will want to backprobe the other connector. I will attach a link to a video showing what we mean by backprobing. Basically, we will be creating an external testing source at the connector while leaving it connected. The video shows testing using a T pin, but you can use any small straight pin or even an open safety pin. The small wire should have battery voltage when you attempt to start the vehicle.
Thanks, ***** ***** under the impression it didn't crank, but happy to see you've got it going.
Great. Thank you.
