Turn key nothing happens

Asked by Dec 14, 2015 at 03:44 PM about the 1999 Toyota Corolla CE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Sometimes when I first turn the key, I get nothing. No sounds, nothing. I turn it back and turn again and it starts.I left it over night at my mechanic who only repairs Toyotas and Hondas, and it worked fine (of course)... not sure if it's the starter, because I don't hear any noise... any help would be great.

Thanks

Could be the starter, the fuel pressure regulator (that is what caused a long delay in my Versa) Batter could almost be dead, that is how my Lexus sounded then after 3 days barely got it to start and replaced the batter. Also alternator could be going out. Id say probably starter first, check battery and check the alternator make sure is charging. ( you can check alternator by starting your car, then unplugging one of the battery cables, should stay running unless alternator is not charging fast enough. then check fuel pressure regulator
