Toyota Camry 2000 to start a problem

Asked by Jul 05, 2018 at 10:14 AM about the 2002 Toyota Camry

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The starter on my car needs to be tapped
occasionally to start but now suddenly no amount
of tapping seems to get it going. I don’t really think
it’s the entire starter since it only acts up when it’s
wet out. I’m not a mechanic just the facts

These have a higher than normal failure rate of the solenoid contact points inside the solenoid, however you need to remove the starter to get to them and replace the points, but as Murphy's law always prevails and after that hassle most people opt to just replace the entire unit just for piece of mind.
