Dead battery perhaps?

Turn your headlights on. Is the light bright? Leave your headlights on and try starting your car. If it cranks and the lights dim, its your battery. You can also do a voltage test on your batter by using a volt tester. A healthy battery should register between 13-14volts. ANything below 13volts, you have a charging problem and that is the cause of a bad alternator.

If your car doesn't crank at all, it could be many things.
Starter is the most likely culprit.
Dead fuel pump

Is there a CEL (check engine light)
IF there is, you can get an engine diagnose and pull the error code

Welcome to Carforum. I've moved your thread to the Toyota forum, where it is a better fit than New Members.
