Would appreciate any suggestions about my 2003 Tundra that periodically won't start
About a year ago I started having this problem -- turn the key and tick-tick-tick -- it won't start.
Replaced the battery, replaced and cleaned up the battery cable connectors -- same problem recurs. It's not every time I try to start it -- but every couple of weeks. Seems to happen most frequently when truck is left for several days, such as at an airport parking lot. Hard starting a time or two after that, then OK for a couple of weeks. Sometimes it is very hard to start -- no tick-tick-tick, just dead -- requiring jump-start charging with another car for a half hour or so. Sometimes it is so dead I have to re-set radio, clock, etc.
Battery tests OK, but I fear constant drain will wear it out.
I've read several posts that suggest fuse or alternator problems. Any suggestions? This is a very frustrating problem with a truck I otherwise just love! Thanks!
