hello,

i am hoping that someone will be able to help me with this:

my tercel won't start. i drove it to work without any problems and when i left, it wouldn't even turn over, not even a clicking noise. there haven't been any telling signs of possible starter failure, or alternator failure. i've checked the clutch relay and the starter relay and they both show continuity. i replaced the starter and the solenoid today and that wasn't the problem because it still won't start or turn over. i have been able to start it by pushing it and popping the clutch, but when i got home, nothing. the battery is fine, too. i've checked all the fuses hoping maybe one had blown, but that wasn't the case either.
if anyone has any suggestions, i would really like to hear them.

thank you for your replies. i have an update, in case anyone is having the same problem. also, i knew it wasn't the battery because all of the accessories, radio, lights, etc. still worked. i had also tested the battery and was getting 12 volts. i checked the cable to the starter in case there was a short in that run, but it still tested 12 volts also.

anyway, the culprit ended up being a faulty short in the starter relay circuit.

i hope this helps someone. thanks again for your replies.
