94 toyota corolla starting issues

Asked by Ammoguy23 Jan 11, 2020 at 06:50 PM about the 1994 Toyota Corolla Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Have a 94 toyota corolla, when I go to start it it just
clicks if I turn the starter switch several times it will
eventually start cranking if I catch it righ... having
to start it using a screwdriver at the starter switch
but the starter switch is brand new, battery brand
new, starter in good working condition been tested
and tried alternate starter on car as well to narrow
down the issue, all relays are good tested and
swapped out to be assured they werent the issue,
since the issue started my radiator fan now turns
on as soon as you turn the car to the on position
on the starter switch and never goes off regardless
of engine temp.... I've checked the wiring I could
see and it all seems to be sufficiently grounded
connected etc... any help or advice is greatly

1 Answer

Update: the radiator fan constantly running was a seperate issue one of the sensor wires running to the fuse/relay box in engine compartment was cut repaired wire and radiator no longer constantly running but had no effect on the no crank/just clicking issue... again would be if I tried starting it over and over it would "catch" and start cranking sometime just barely though but spent over 2 hrs doing the normal trying over and over as fast as I could and now not getting lucky with it catching at all
