Electrical Or Starter? Please Help.

Recommended Posts

While driving my 98 Es300 the car just shut off. When I tried to start it the car wouldn't start. It sound like it wanted to catch but couldn't. I had driven the car earlier that day and it was fine. I checked the battery and it was fine. My lights, radio, and alarm still work. I made sure that the connections were not loose. Does this sound like an electrical problem or the starter?

You may also want to check your distributor and your alternator if the engine made a lugging sound before it died. If it was fine and just died immediately it is most likely something electrical. Something as simple as a loose connection or a bad relay could cause this.
