I and bought a new starter relay and it still didn't work. And a new ignition switch it also didn't work. It will start if I put a jumper wire in the starter relay pin. Perhaps maybe I need to get OEM relay?

What relay did you buy if not an OEM?

How do you know if the system immobilizer is active?. Im still haven't found the solution yet. I'd check and replace speed sensor. Just now. I think maybe a new battery would help.

The immobilizer is working if you see the Security light flashing when the car is not running. You have one only if your model is the Limited. The battery could be the problem unless you did a load test and know for sure. You can't assume it is good even if it is new. You could have a bad alternator which may not charge your battery.

It sounds like your aftermarket or factory car alarm system has a starter kill relay that doesn’t work.

Your describtion sounds like you're loosing power on the circuit for the control side of the relay meaning the circuit that controls power to the coil in the relay that pulls the contacts closed. Check for 12vdc at pin 1 at the relay socket with the ignition switch at start. Verify you have a solid ground (near zero resistance) at pin 2 at same.

I bought a new relay from toyota dealership in Sacramento, CA for 56.00 because I'm in Alaska they want 105.00. Got it two days ago and put it in and I didn't work.
