Having problems with your 1993 Toyota 4Runner ?

The battery is new. 93 4runner. Turn Key, everything works, turn the key to start, hear the click and then nothing. No clock, no lights, on horn, nothing, as if the battery were disconnected. Jiggle wire to starter, tap on the fuses / relay's etc. Turn the key, nothing, play with the clutch by-pass switch, still nothing. Slam the door. Come back an hour later, turn the key, everything works, turn the key to start, hear the click and then nothing ... about 5 times now.

I had the exact same problem a few days ago. Disconnect an clean both terminals on battery and reconnect them. It will probably work.
Check that both terminals on battery are clean and tight. Then ensure other end of small positive wire from battery and engine earth are clean and tight.
