Did you replace the entire starter or just the solenoid?

Smile I ended up replacing my starter.

Thanks everyone for your input to my starting problems. Just wanted to leave a resolution to my issue for others to see.

If yours does the same thing (clicks one or many times then starts like no problem) then it needs Just these:

Amazon.com: Victory Lap ND-36SOL Solenoid Repair Kit: Automotive

Yes the starter has to come out, not that tough really like everyone makes it seem, yet far cheaper and w/b more reliable than most after market starters.

Luck and enjoy the Runner.

we had this plague in our outback. we changed out everything from the starter relay to the cable terminators, cleaned everything very thoroughly to ensure good contact... and it was the starter. so the solenoid repair kit that @jgue467 alludes to above may be useful for yours. a mechanic we discussed this with, said sometimes the starter develops dead spots where contact isn't exactly great. that might be a factor here... who knows.

Not necessarily. Don't jump to conclusion.
What are other symptoms?
Voltage readings?
All connections good?

Toyota components are bullet-proof. Issues often arise from poor wiring, assembly and/or maintenance. Suspect those first.
Next only to our senses, the multi-meter is the most important electrical diagnostic tool. Spend $6 at Harbor Freight or $$$ blindly replacing parts.

Agree.

My Saturn when I had a bad starter didnít make a klick. So after replacing the ignition switch and the clutch safety interlock switch and still had the problem I replaced the starter and problem went away.

The plunger after thousands of repeated beatings against the copper contacts wins by flatting the copper so much it does not make sufficient contact to pass enough current, hence the "click". Then after trying again and again, the plunger moves the copper contact just enough for sufficient current to pass to the starter. A new contact and your're back in business for quite some time.

Mine has survived to 320K but I've helped 2 other buddies change the contacts (actually it's only 1 contact that wears but may as well change both)....Luck all.

Hmmm, I guess Ol' Timmy was right on this one. I reckon I sometimes get lucky with my Toyota forum diagnosis. OP, glad you got it fixed and you're rig is back on the road.

Good job fixing the problem on your own. You saved yourself lots of money turning your own wrenches. Next time though, consider just swapping out the contacts and plunger. If you starter was the original Denso, it's far superior to any other aftermarket crap that auto parts stores sell. If you got a remanned Denso, then you did good.

The resolution is clearly stated in the thread. I suggest you read the thread rather than asking an OP who has not been back since December. Did you read any of the other six threads you posted the same question on?

We love helping people but we expect folks to expend a minimum of their own effort.
