1992 Toyota Paseo Q&A
1992 Toyota Paseo Question: car won't start, problem isn't starter but i think it's in the wiring.
If you don't have a wiring diagram, try to get one. Trying to address this type of problem without it is very difficult. Try autozone.com or alldatadiy.com and study the diagram, you will then see what wires deliver the proper signals for starting the engine. - Bret Bodas
The Denso starter on these cars have 2 replaceable contacts and a plunger that get pitted and fail giving a clicking sound or cause the dash lights to dim but the engine not crank. The contacts and plunger are inside the small cover with three separate 8mm headed bolts. Frequent problem. If you have power at the starter from the ignition switch check these contacts (starter needs to be removed). - patrick mannion
Mine does the same thing but starts if the starter solenoid is tapped lightly, so I assume it's something to do with the solenoid. - Visitor
