Default Having ignition/starting problems!

Hey, my 97 Toyota Camry won't start. The battery won't keep a charge, yet I got it tested and it is still good for a few more months. The engine has no clicking sound, its not even turning over. The car does have fuel in it. We are thinking that it is the coil, alternator, dispenser, or even just dirty wire connectors, what is your opinion? Thanks!

I would take the alternator out and take it to parts store for testing. Rule that out first. Does the car start when it is jumped?

being a 97 model
you should have you got a battery warning light on the instrument panel

wont be coil or spark related

just the alternator or its regulator

you could check the wires to the battery terminals are clean and tight
