No crank no start


Asked by May 14, 2017 at 02:31 PM about the 2006 Toyota Tundra

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Toyota Tundra 06 will not crank/start. It has a charged battery and the fuse looks ok. People have
suggested it is the neutral safety switch. How can I test it?

It doesn't make a sound when turning the key but everything lights up. At one time I moved the shifter back and forth then tried again and it started. Now it won't even do that.

Did you try starting in the Neutral position, instead of Park?

It looks like it is a problem with the starter. It confused us because it didnt even make a click sound when turning the key. But when we tapped it with a hammer and turned the key it started. It also was strange that we moved it to neutral then back to park and it would start a few times then completely stopped working.

When it won't turn over and you have an anti-theft disable device, don't forget to check the anti-theft devise. I just spent 3 hours trying to determine what was wrong and apparently the contacts were bad after just sitting for 10+ years. Pulled it out and plugged it back in several times to make sure it was making good contact and it started right up.
