Model Years Affected: 1995, 1996, 1997, 2006

Average Mileage: 143,000 mi (86,000 mi - 202,000 mi)


If the vehicle will not crank over, the most common problem is the starter, which tend to fail at about 100,00-125,000 miles. Sometimes it is only the starter solenoid contacts, but often the complete starter (including solenoid) needs to be replaced.

    In the morning when I try and start my truck I just get a single click sound. This happens 3 or more times of turning the key but then eventually starts normally.

    I have been having a problem for the last 3 months with my 2006 Toyota Tacoma. When I try to start it in the morning, it will click. I try to start it 4 or 5 times and it will start. Then it will start just fine everyday for a month then do it again, only one time. This morning was the third time it has done it. As of now it is starting fine. I am getting ready to put a new starter in it to see if it stops it. I done want to get stranded somewhere when it decides to totally go out.

    Starter won't work. Battery good and tried jumping but same effect. We can catch it off and it runs fine. Either starter or electrical between battery and starter.
