Is the battery charged?

Solid corrosion free connections to battery and negative to ground and engine, uncorroded please~

Do what Bob said and get a jump start...you may have a parasitic drain if your battery is dead. If you jump it and it does start, shut if off (after running it a while to charge battery). Disconnect the negative battery cable and put a multi meter from neg. battery terminal to a good ground. There should be no current flow. The clock may come on but draws so little it should not show.

woa woa woa---it's magic...becha!

yeah, pilot...reachin' waaay back.

It's often the simplest things, like a good electrical connection that are often the solution to semi-conductor 'brown out' conditions, which unless they were smart enough to design-in a 'fail-safe' that toyota's pretty good at you end up with a condition such as the one described in this post.

the Hudson Hornet never worried about such things as a 'fail-safe' condition.
