I just joined Edmunds Car Space so there is a delay in this response. I have a 94 Camry V6 LE with 94K miles now.
I have had had the same problem twice, the rear light indicator would come on after starting the car a depressing the brake pedal the first time. All the bulbs in the rear were OK. Once was in April 08 and once about 3 years ago.
Two different Toyota dealer shops found the same problem each time: a short had developed in the wiring harness inside the the trunk lid under the insulation. The second time it had happened we were on the way to the airport, I had a luggage in the trunk and had just shut the lid.

I believe the symptoms of that problem would be a little different though. You' may have had the inside warning light on, but you would also have been blowing a fuse (if the wire was shorting), or if the wire was broken open then the trunk mounted taillight would not be working. Did you notice one of the other symptoms? or were you just working off of the inside warning light on?
Was your wire problem at the flex point where the wire moves everytime the trunk opens or closes? or was it really up underneath the insulation where it may have been pinched by jamming the trunk lid down on an overfilled trunk?

I have just been dealing with the same problem. Broken wire at the harness adjacent to the trunk hinge. This shorted out fuse but also seems to have burnt the light failure unit which is located on the left side of the trunk behind the liner. Just follow the harness. I managed a repair by soldering the the affected wires. Toyota wanted 275.00 cnd for the unit. Ebay had it for about 50.00us. I also had several defective new bulbs so don't assume that the new bulb you put in is working. Check with a meter before installing.

Where is the fuse for the air conditioning for a 94 camry le v6. So far I have only found a relay. I have located three different fuse box locations. One under the Park Brake release and two in the engine compartment drivers front corner.

Are you talking about the fuse and relay for the front radiator fan?
#426 of 1158 98 Camry gone crazy- Wierd electrical problem.
Jul 07, 2008 (12:29 pm)
Hi, I have a 98 Camry 4 cylinder. I had engine and transmission taken out yesterday to fix a transmission leak ($5 seal). Also replaced timing belt and water pump. We put everything back together and car ran great. I drove it last night for about 60 miles in town and on the highway. This morning however, I started the car to check fluids and turned it off then the car started acting up- power windows stopped working, nothing works on the dashboard except seat belt light, car won't start and sun roof won't work either. Moreover, transmission won't shift to the second gear (always on first)- revers works fine (I started car from stater- couldn't jump start it). Stereo, headlights, signals, power locks all work fine. We checked all the plugs, fuses and ground wires again, and everything seems in place. I don't know what's going on???? Any help. Thank you

You're going to need to get a voltmeter, and start troubleshooting the basic electrical circuits of the car. Figure out what is working, and what is not working to zero in on the problem area. I'm assuming you did this work yourself, as opposed to paying a shop. If on the other hand you paid a shop, call them back up and tell them to come tow the car in so they can troubleshoot it.

No. Just the fuse for the air conditioning pump. Assuming there is one. I have seen mention of a low pressure sensor which prevents the ac pump from operating. Don't know the status of my system pressure. By the by what is the gas in the ac in the 94 year.

Understand what you are looking for now.
There are three fuses which feed the AC control circuitry, a 40A Heater fuse, a 10A AC fuse, and the 10A Gauge fuse. You also have a relay called Heater, which is integral to this power circuit.
The Gauge fuse is in the normal fuse box. The other three, are located in a relay block down in the lower right passenger side kick panel.
For the clutch control, there is a magnetic clutch relay, which is controlled (turned on/off), by the AC amplifier. When the relay is turned on, the clutch is powered and turned on. The clutch also has a lock sensor attached to it, which feeds back to the ac amplifier. There is an evaporator temperature sensor, runs from the AC amplifier thru the lock sensor, and back to the AC amplifier. There is also a dual pressure switch (monitors high and low pressure), which feeds to the AC amplifier.
