Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. Did you verify the connection to the starter? Was the last start behaving to same way?

Toyota Mechanic: Todd M, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

I few things could cause your issue. A bad connection in the circuit. To verify this, you will need to check the connection from the battery to the starter and the starter grounds. The issue could be the ignition switch. To verify this you will need check for the voltage at the switch signal wire. Also, the starter relay could be faulty. All of these things could cause your issue. Another cause, would be the neutral safety/clutch switch. Here I have provided the electrical information for the circuits just to give you a better understanding. Also, if the motor is damaged(bound), it may prevent the starter from doing its job. Just a moment, please.

Here is the description and removal information for the neutral safety switch. If this switch fails, it will prevent the vehicle from starting.

Here I am providing testing for the ignition switch. I am actually suspecting the connections or the relay to be the problem, but all these things mentioned are possibilities and should be checked out.
