Hey! So I own a 89 Celica GT and I'm having some issues narrowing down an issue, some times when I attempt to turn the car completely on (crank it) I have no response, but have feel access to electricity inside the car, I repeatedly crank the key anywhere between 4-10 times and it'll come right on, I just had my alternator replaced, and my battery was just checked today!

I have a 93 and it was doing same thing. Mine was the fuse under the hood. Not sure what it’s called but it’s a huge fuse but posts on it are very thin. It was loose in socket. So I put some stripped wire folded over both legs so it would be tighter and it’s been working fine

I had a similar problem in my '89 and it turned out to be a leaking o-ring where the distributor plugs into the block. There was engine oil inside the distributor!
