    New to this site but a faithful Toyota driver. I just bought a used 4runner with just over 103,000 miles. Drove the vehicle at dealership and it started and ran fine. Vehicle was delivered to my house 3 days later and sat in my driveway another 3 days while I awaited insurance coverage. Tried to start vehicle and it just cranked and cranked but would never turn over. After numerous tries over another day it finally started but would never start for me again. Tow truck driver tried to start it and after several tries and him pumping the gas pedal it started. Trying to get dealership to fix but they are giving me the runaround. Battery is a 2018 with plenty of power. Vehicle has clean carfax showing no issues. Realize it might be fuel filter/pump. Could it also be the ECM? Any suggestions or insight would be appreciated. Still hoping dealership will work with me but I am afraid they won't.

    Welcome :wave: Are you getting any codes? If you haven’t checked I would start there.

    Hmmm. Id start simple and go from there. Get volt readings and check alt and starter. Can it be started from a jump? Its pretty young to have a starting issue. Even with the original spark plugs it should start.

    Check your fuse. Great posts here.

    Thanks for the welcomes Benny123, Strandskov, and HoboDanny! There have been no codes pop up on this vehicle at all. Can Toyota pull past codes (history) or see things on their readers that places like advance auto and other places can't. Have not tried jumping since battery seems to have significant power and starter seems to be working properly. If fuses were blown would it still start some of the time? Thanks for input

    Yeah theyll pull all codes. If they say theres none there arent any. Try the above and check your fuses.
