1999 Toyota Corolla,starter will not turn over.
Starter will not turn over, while on jump I get one click from starter and that's it, have not
had any pass problems with starter. Battery it 6 months old. New starter?
Try this: Jack up car. Locate starter. Have someone turn the key to the ON position and hold it there like they are starting the car. As they hold the key, rap on the starter with a hammer. If the engine suddenly turns over, yes, the starter is bad and needs replacement.
Reelin68 has a good idea. You can also try taking a jumper cable from battery, (a good one) and put one The Black Neg-- cable ground-to -ground on each car and put the Red pos+ from good battery to starter lug, then see if it starts. Or if you used cheap jumper cables, use TWO sets and allow to run like that, for at least 10 minutes, relax, have a beer and be patient.Red to Red on each battery and black ground to ground. Using the battery Neg post for a ground is not as good as frame to frame. Please be safe, don't get under car with tire-jack. Use a proper jack stand. If neither of our suggestions work, come on back. Mater of fact let us know if it does please!
Reelin68 are you talking about the Bendix or solenoid?
http://www.2carpros.com/questions/toyota-corolla-1996-toyota-corolla-starter http://www.justanswer.com/toyota/55o3o-toyota-corolla-1999-toyota-corolla-starting-problem.html but #2 site says the battery and battery tray AND coolant tank must be remover to get to solenoid..but I can't accept that. There is a mud-guard underneath but easily removed..this will go full screen
http://www.ehow.com/how_6651417_remove-starter-1996-toyota-corolla.html What they left out is disconnect Black Neg — cable from battery first But let's make sure of something, in case we need more information..Do you have the 1.8L- 7A FE or 1ZZ FE?
Most likely the contacts from the solenoid need to be replaced! I have the same year corolla with the same problem and fixed mine. Check out the instructions here: http://antares.co.nf/youtube.html
I usually rap it right where the motor and the bendix meet. Sorry for the delayed reply. Been out ice fishing in Quebec for the last couple of days....

Umm....Martin, any reason as to why you answer the same question that you already answered 11 months ago?
Yes Reelin68, because I've updated the link to the instructions...
