#1050 of 1159 2006 Toyota Camry xle driver's side head light problem
Jan 29, 2011 (4:57 pm)
My generous school snow plowers pushed snow into my car (right under the hood). snow covered radiator upto right in front of battery. I cleaned snow out using a random stick. Driver's side head light was out so I bought 2 pairs of brighter light bulbs for both low and high beams. After replacement, I tested all lights. Only driver's side low beam does not work. How can I approach this problem?

Sorry, been off the system for a couple days.
First, let me say do not ever replace the fuse in a circuit with a higher rated fuse. The wire is only rated for the fuse, and the fuse keeps the wire from burning up. If your wire burns, you will have one heck of a time trying to rewire that circuit, having to tear everything apart. It would be an extremely expensive repair.
The 10A circuit, when it gets into the A/C area, powers a couple of things:
- Heater Relay
- A/C Magnetic Clutch Relay
- Heater control switch
- Air inlet servo motor
- Air vent servo motor
You have to try and find a way to isolate those things, and figure out what is drawing too much power. If after replacing the fuse, with no A/C you can adjust air inlet and vents, then it probably isn't those. I'd then pull both the heater relay, and the clutch relay, and try flipping the a/c on. If it blows, then I would lean to the heater control switch being bad. If it doesn't blow, then shut evertything off, and put the heater relay back in. Try it again, see if it blows. If that works, then put the magnetic clutch relay in, and if that blows, then you have it isolated down to that circuit.

Need to figure out whether the problem is the bulb, or the circuit to the bulb.
Take the bulbs out, and measure resistance of the different filaments. You have two bulbs, so should be able to compare them. If you find them different, then one of the bulbs is bad. If they are the same resistance, then put the bulbs back in different side. Switch the drivers with the passenger side.
If the problem stays with the driver side, you know the problem is in the circuit feeding the bulb, and both bulbs are good. If the problem moves to the passenger side, you know definitively the bulb is the culprit.

#1054 of 1159 97 camry tail lights problem
Feb 13, 2011 (5:22 pm)
hello, none of the lights on my trunk hood works. these include the license plate lights and parking lights. first i replaced them, but no good. then i examined the fuse box (behind the coin storage, under the steering wheel). nothing looked out of the ordinary. im guessing the fuse in question is the 15A, the blue one 2nd from the bottom on the 2nd column. i dont have extra fuses at the moment to replace it, but just to test, i used a different 15a fuse and plugged it in just to see if the lights would come on. they still didnt. all these lights worked about a month ago.
dont know what to do!

You're mucking with the wrong fuse. You don't want the 15A Stop fuse, you want the one directly below that, which is a 10A Tail fuse.
If that doesn't fix it, or it blows again, let me know. There's some other things to diagnose where the problem may be.

Hazard lights are working and flashing, all running lights are working and headlights are working. Dash lights are working but we are unable to get the front and back, left and right turn signals to work. They do not turn on or flash. It is a 1993 Camry XLE

This forum is great, I kept reading posts and found the solution and found the resolution it was a fuse and I found the location it was not in the fuse box which was throwing me.

#1059 of 1159 Fuse 10 A burns on Toyota Camry 1996
Mar 03, 2011 (10:19 am)
Hi everyone! I had this camry (it is a great car, runs like a gazelle!) since jan 2000, and have never had any problem 'till now. It started a couple of weeks ago, after I washed my car at the carwash station. 10 A fuse was blowing out everytime i start my car. this fuse controls window power on driver side, dashboard lights, windshields and maybe something else I forgot to mention. Fuse blows everytime I try to move my car from parking position to neutral or reverse. What could be a problem? it is obvious to me that my cat has shorting in electrical wires.. but where could it be? My car passed emission and inspection test day before it happened. Where to look at?
