Asked by Jul 27, 2009 at 04:31 PM about the 1996 Toyota Tacoma 2 Dr V6 Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

To start, it just clicks most of time.  Once or twice it starts.  Battery replaced, all the ground connections & terminals cleaned, starter and cellonoid bench checked & are OK.  Starter Relay replaced with no success.  I'm doing my own work.  Is there anything else to do?

starter and solenoid might be the culprit. if the battery is ok and the solenoid is accually clicking then it wont be a power supply problem or a signal problem. if the relay was bad it wouldnt click at ll. id say measure the power at the starter to make sure your getting all the juice you need. it could be when your bench testing a could be bad start it spins cause there is no resistance and when on the car it wont.
