I'm sure I am NOT the one to answer this question but funny thing was the FUSE I ended swapping out was NOT one of those colored fuses in the fuse box - this fuse was silver and round with two prongs, it was located to the RIGHT side of the actual fuse box that's in the kick panel - right next to the bright yellow starter relay (this is LABELED) on the LEFT...so BETWEEN the fuse box & the starter relay fuse.
I didn't have to buy a NEW fuse as I ended up pushing in the little reset button on that fuse and reinstalled it...everything is working now.
kiawah was VERY HELPFUL during my troubleshooting experience.
Please note, my car is a 1990 camry so I am not sure if it is RELEVANT to your 1994 camry (???)...

I assume your power windows aren't working. In a 94, that is controlled by a 30Amp fuse called 'Power'.
On the interior fuse box where you list the ECU-15A, Gauge-10Amp, etc......look way over on the right edge. There is a 30Amp Power fuse (just a bit above an imaginary horizontal line drawn from the ECU fuse), and underneath it is a 40Amp Defog fuse. It's the top one you want to check out.

I looked and there was nothing to the right I will look again, all that is to the right is a solid piece of plastic no other fuses are visible. I also now think this may not be a fuse issue. I wiggled the wire in the door jamb area and the windows rolled up. I think this may be a flexing issue you mentioned to someone earlier.
What is the general fix for this type of issue.

Yes, with the new info, it is most likely the wire that is flexing.
Unfortunately, the fix for this is to replace the defective wire, with a new one. You don't have to run it fuse to switch, you can just splice in a new piece that runs between the jamb and the door.
When I do this, I do the splicing inside the door, and inside the jamb. Sometimes it's hard to know exactly where the defect is in the cable that is flexing (in between the door and the jamb), so replacing the whole thing from where you know the wire is good and not flexing...is the best fix. Be sure to use stranded wire, which permits flexing without breaking more than a solid core wire would, and capable to handle 30Amps.
You need to be fairly comfortable with tools and soldering iron to do this job.

Thanks a million for the advice, will check out all options.
#242 of 1158 1992 Camry XLE V6 Windshield Wipers Won't Worl
Oct 18, 2007 (11:45 am)
I need Help. I just bought a 1992 Toyota Camry XLE V6. Now I find out the windshield wipers don't work. I went by Auto Zone and checked the fuses (20A) and they were fine. The kind gentleman at Auto Zone said it may be a relay. I don't know a thing about cars. What is a relay? Where is it located? Is it expensive to fix? Is it possible for someone who knows -0- about cars do this (that would be me). Thanks so much.

This will most likely be one of three problems, a fuse, the switch, or the wiper motor.
You checked the 20A wiper fuse supposedly at Autozone, but verify that you have power to your wiper stalk on the steering wheel by turning on the washer. If the washer sprays fluid on the windshield, then you know that the fuse is indeed okay and you have power to the wiper switch.
Assuming you do have power as above, then the way to figure out if it is the switch or the motor that is the problem, is that you need to measure the voltage of the circuit at the wiper motor connector, with the switch in the on positions. If you have 13 volts at the connectors, then your switch is probably okay, and the wiper motor is bad. If you don't have power at the connector when the switch is in the on position, then your switch is bad.
If you know zero about cars and haven't done any work on them before, this would probably not be the time to start. But at least you know what a shop should be checking, and can find out an estimate a head of time approximately how much it should cost for repair.

#245 of 1158 1998 Camry Clock, Mirrors and Lighter Fuse - Please Help!!
Oct 20, 2007 (6:39 am)
The clock on my 1998 Camry went blank recently and it seems that both driver side and passenger side power mirrors as well as the cigarette lighter are not working. I've checked all of the fuses in the fuse box and all seem to be OK. What am I missing? Can someone help me to identify the location of the fuse that controls these items?
I'm at a loss.

Check your 40Amp AM1 fuse. It's in the engine compartment, on the left fender well in the JunctionBox.
In the junction box, it is right near the Dome Fuse.
I think your power outlet is also not working.
Let me know if you find this blown or not.
