    Well, after getting my truck all back together, it wouldnt start. All the accessory functions worked, but when i went to turn the key.. a single click. So i assumed the battery was trash.FALSE. Next i figured it could be the starter. I got it checked at O'Reillys, but all was good. So i did a little research and found out it was probably the Solenoid contacts. Here is what i found:

    The contacts are incredibly worn! So i bought some new ones and new plunger! Hopefully that fixes my problem! Oh BTW, removing the starter off of the 2RZ was the biggest PITA

    that should fix the problem , most people dont know that u can buy new contacts and install them yourself , people end up buying a whole new starter
