Q: 2004 Toyota Solara won't start

asked by on

I have a new battery. However, the car won't start. It vibrates when I turn the key, but it just won't turn over. What should I do?

This is going to be due to a bad starter. Have a mechanic check the cables to the starter first and then see if the starter is getting the proper voltage. The starter then should be replaced if you need help with this, have a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect your car’s starter and make the necessary repairs for you.
