Customer Question
My 2000 toyota solara...

My 2000 toyota solara won't crank...security light comes on and hear a click sound when turning the key

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light flash, blink or stay solid? Have you tried to reset the security system?

I can't remember if it blinks or stays solid... don't know how to reset the security

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Solara yourself? What have you tried so far?

Trying to fix myself...tried to jumpstart but no luck

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Just had a tune up and replaced the coils this past December to pass inspection

When you said won't crank do you mean the starter is not turning the motor over or it wont start?
