88 4Runner ignition module/switch

I have a good starter, great battery, and nothing as I turn the key. I suspect that it is the switch. Is this just behind the key cylinder? What is involved with this repair? Thanks

Is it a stick or auto?

What about any aftermarket alarms or remains of?

You could have a problem with the clutch switch, does it have a bypass switch on the dash?

How do you know the starter is good?

This is a friends truck. I was only told of the problem after the starter was pulled. I just had the starter checked at the store. It engauged and spun. So after I installed the same starter, I myself turned the key. The starter clicks but doesn't engauge or spin. So it can't be the ignition switch. I'm going to just install a new starter tomorrow and hope that is the problem. The truck just wouldn't start the next morning so it shouldn't have seized. It had oil pressure, oil, and a good antifreeze mix. It just doesn't have the juice to turn the motor over. I can raise and lower the rear glass with the switch, so I know the battery has plenty of power. I will swap out the battery just for good measure before doing the starter install. Thanks for the help.

A little confusing

Checking the battery by using the rear window is a new test for me. I think the battery needs to be on a battery tester to properly diagnose.

Did you replace the starter and still have a problem?
