Why is my Toyota Corolla not starting?
I went to start my Toyota Corolla this morning, and it wouldn’t start. It worked fine yesterday. I let it sit for a few hours to see if that would help, but nothing. Why wouldn’t a brand new Toyota Corolla not start?

Oh gosh! That sounds very frustrating! I’m sorry to hear that you’re having trouble getting your car started.
The reason why your Toyota Corolla is not starting is probably to do with a dead or faulty battery. There are other possible causes, of course–but battery trouble is the most common culprit.
Given the fact that your Toyota was working just fine yesterday, it’s almost certainly a dead battery that you’re dealing with. Do the headlights, radio, and interior electrical systems come on? If not, you’re dealing with a dead battery, for sure.
You’ll need a quick jump start, and you should be fine.
If the lights do come on, then you’re probably dealing with a faulty alternator or starter. In which case, you’ll need the help of a professional mechanic.
Unfortunately, not all car trouble can be as easy as a dead battery. For more serious incidents or accidents, you’ll need the support of quality car insurance.
