    My '07 Tacoma won't start after driving an hour or more when I shut it off for at least 30 minutes. It has a 4 cylinder and a 5 speed manual trans.The motor temp is fine and no bells or whistles come on. I have a Sekurit system on it and yesterday I had to drive it to the Toyota dealer in Davis, Ca. They called me up today and tried to tell me that it was "defective part in the security system". I said then if so why does it start at all regardless of the temp of the motor. Well as I expected he couldn't answer the question. Then I asked him if he could 100% tell me that this was the problem and of course he couldn't and then tried to take me around the perpetual mountain. I have been on other web sites and have discovered that this is a common problem with these pickups. No one can so far give a definative answer as to the cause of the problem and no one has even mentioned the Sekurit security system as the cause. So.....I called the Roseville Toyota and talked to the service dept. and they said they have never heard of the security system causing a problem like this. So right now the truck is at the dealer that has no answers......,can someone please help if anyone has any info on this apparently common problem??? My direct e-mail is dvdevita@earthlink.net cell is 530-383-1796

    Um, as far as I know this is not a common problem of the 2TR motor. There is a TSB for an intermittent no start of the 1GR motor however.

    Appreciate the reply 98tacoma27 but believe me before a couple of hours ago I was unaware of this being a common problem with the tacoma's also. In the research I have so far done.....it's a common problem with little or no answers as far back as '96.

    I think first thing you need to do is define "won't start"
    Is it
    1. Crank no engine kick in

    or
    2. I turn key and no crank nothing

    Its possible to have bad connection due to alarm system. that will prevent relays from kicking in and starting truck. bad connection will get affected by temp in engine bay.
