1993 Toyota Corolla ProblemsEngine Won't Crank Due To Starter
If the engine will not crank over, the most common problem is the starter. These will tend to go out at about 100,00-125,000 miles. Sometimes it is only the starter solenoid, but often the complete starter (including solenoid) needs to be replaced.
At higher mileages, (125,000-150,000) the automatic transmission may not shift correctly. This can be caused by the throttle position sensor being out of adjustment or a shift solenoid needing to be replaced. Typically the transmission does not need to be completely overhauled.
There are occasional reports of daytime running light problems.

Toyota is recalling 1993-1994 Corolla models because an unused harness connector for power windows, power door locks, and sunroof was improperly routed under the floor carpet in the left kick panel. In cold weather areas where road salt is used, the water from a driver's foot can penetrate the carpet, drop onto the connector, and form a salt bridge between the terminals. This can cause an electrical short, which may result in a fire. Dealers will remove the unused harness connector.
