#1114 of 1159 1997 Camry electical issue.
Jul 17, 2011 (10:56 pm)
All options running from my 1997 toyota camry electrical fuse box under the dash have stopped working. Any help? I have checked every fuse and all are okay. Was having trouble with alternator connection burning the connecting wire. Alternator checks out and good and have a new battery. i have seen two other posts describing the exact problem that I am having but could not follow the solutions given. I have traced the wires and harness but all look good. All the components from the fuse box under the hood work properly. Something is stopping power from getting to this particular fuse box. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

No. I am certain that the battery is installed correctly. Keep in mind the headlights, horn and every thing else that is associated with the fuse box under hood works properly. But everything that is tied to the fuse box under the dash does not.

Did you get the answer to your question? I own a 98 Camry and it looks like we have the same issues. I just replaced the water pump in mine and now I have no power to AC, windows, gauges, Radio, or radiator fan. Also can not get the car out of park had to use to override button. I have checked all fuses and replaced fuses.

No I have not. But it is the exact same problem. I also have to use the shift over ride button to get the car out of gear. No park lights stop light nothing. There have been issues described exactly as ours but no posts carried the conversation all the way through to the solultion. Someone out there has to know because it is an issue that has repeated.

I just went out to start my 2005 Camry LE V4. It does not start nor is there any power anywhere. Fortunately I was able to unlock the car before it did this. I have never had a stick of problems with this vehicle before and I am original owner, It has only 61,000 miles on it. Would this be an electrical issue? There is nothing working on this car at this point.

Well by all means check for loose battery cables and clean and tighten those up.
If the car starts right up with a jump, then something has been draining your battery.
Once your car starts up, get it to a charging station. Don't let your alternator try to charge up a completely dead battery.
in fact, if you could charge the battery up a bit PRIOR to jump starting it, or instead of starting it, that would be safer for you and the car.
If you are going to be the one applying jumper cables to a battery that has been charging, wear safety goggles.

I solved the problem we were having. It was the 100 amp fuse in the box under the hood. Although at first, it appeared that the fuse was not blown, once I remove the cover and attempted to test with a test light it was obvious it was blown. Heads up. You will have to remove the fuse box to remove this fuse. There are four plastic pins on the side with most of the fuses and two on the top part that holds the 100 amp fuse. Once these are removed the fuse has two screws that have to be removed. I hope this will solve your electrical issues.

My reverse lights don't light up when shifting my manual transmission 2002 Camry into reverse. I checked all the fuses and didn't find a fuse marked "reverse lights."
