I’d figure out where the starter solenoid was and jump it with a screwdriver first. I’m not home, so I can’t go look at mine to look where it is.
I drove to work and back again yesterday. Same deal. It ran perfectly on the way up there, then ran questionably coming back, getting progressively worse. The scanner says something’s going on with the #1 coil pack circuit.
I've had my share of those, the '80 and '88 were my worst ones until I got my '95 tacoma last year with a wide open hole the length of the wheel well. Found a plastic drop in bed liner cheap and now it's out of sight out of mind for now, I'll fix it later this year.I remember the early Toyota pickups running around fine being a rusty sketch of their former selves.
Ignition switch actuator pin problem solved forever!
And SKIM somehow bypassed????
BTW, that's a custom made screwdriver that precisely fits into the ignition switch module to start the truck.
Enjoy and stay tuned for more shenanigans!
