NOT START

2002 Toyota Camry • 4 cylinder FWD • 100 miles

Yesterday not started; ten minutes later started and drove home for 30mins Ok; car ran normal.
today started OK; cleaned battery cables; started OK and engine ran for two minutes and shut off. Couldn't re-started since then. Took battery and Starter to AUTO ZONE for test; both tested GOOD.
Is ignition module or key switch bad?

Next time it refuses to start don't wait for it to make up its mind-do below immediately to determine if its fuel or spark problem

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine atleast 3/16 away from ground-have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, Do you hear the fuel pump come On when you turn key on? If not check fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay if okay-check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs,coil's resistances,cap and rotor,distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it and keep testing

No cranks. Hear nothing but lights, radio and dashboard lights are on.

**No crank at all/nothing/nada when key is engage to starting position

You sure its not a security system issue if not do below

Could be a blown fusible link, the starter, starter relay, clutch switch/park and neutral switch/transmission position switch and ignition switch assuming the battery condition and connections are good. Note: If it doesn't apply disregard.
