#870 of 1159 1997 Toyota Camry Lights Not Working
Nov 23, 2009 (9:00 pm)
I got a 1997 Camry and the lights just cut out on me. When I say light the brake (when stepping on them) and the headlights are working. The front corner lights are not coming on and the tail lights are not coming on when I step on the brakes. However, the harzards are working. Must be a fuse, but can't figure out which one (first the under my left foot or the one under the hood) and then which one to replace???

So was the problem the relay if one headlight works? I am dealing with the same issue right headlight is out , I think the relay is good?
#872 of 1159 dome and trunk light, power locks not working: 97 Camry LE
Dec 05, 2009 (1:27 pm)
i have been reading through this thread and gotten some good ideas for what to check to solve my problem, however, so far i've not found the solution.
1997 Camry LE (2.2L automatic, no factory "theft deterrent system", but there is an aftermarket alarm system from previous owner).
- the dome light has been intermittent for several years, though i have "fixed" it several times by popping the bulb out and putting it back in, i now realize that something more is happening with that circuit. the trunk light and key "ring light" also don't work.
additionally, yesterday after checking fuses and pulling the dome light fixture out to see if there was immediately obvious wiring or grounding problem, the power door locks stopped working *unless the key is in ACC or ON position*
- the power leg of the 7.5A Dome fuse reads good voltage (and the fuse is good)
- the dome light is not receiving voltage
- the power windows DO work normally
- i have checked the 25A Door, 10A Gauge, and 30A Power fuses - all OK and good voltage on power legs (though i'll probably check them again as soon as it stops raining).
at this point i'm starting to look at the relay integration module, but i also think i haven't exhausted other troubleshooting avenues. even with the Haynes manual's schematic, i can't really get a clear picture of how everything fits together.
suggestions welcome - thanks!

I think you are on the right path.
The dome fuse feeds the integration relay, which then provides power up to the dome light itself. Your symptoms would suggest a problem w/integration relay.
Your key cylinder light does not work, that is also fed from the same point on the integration relay. Symptom points to problem w/integration relay.
The door locks, have as part of their control circuitry....you guessed it, the integration relay.
Luggage compartment light....you guessed it.

thanks for the input kiawah.
a happy ending for this story, yet one with a few twists and turns - unnecessary twists as it turns out.
i did replace the relay integration module (after fetching one from a junkyard and learning the slow way precisely how there are not only 2 little plastic latches that hold it on, but also a hefty socket of connections on the back that doesn't like to let go without substantial persuasion!), but nothing changed.
decided to re-recheck all the fuses that may have anything to do with the problem. after studying the funky diagram on the back of the engine compartment fuse/relay lid, i realized that i had been looking at the wrong fuse! at some point in the past, a 7.5A fuse had been put where a 5A should have been, and a 10A was in the Dome slot. i didn't pay close enough attention to the diagram and therefore was 1 column off, i just looked for the 7.5A fuse.
this is just the kind of lesson that i like to learn every few years. sheesh!
i'm including some pictures here for the benefit of anyone who is going to mess with their integration relay and the following bit of parts info that i learned in my search:
- Camry (models without theft deterrent) integration relay module is interchangable from 1997 - 2000
- part number is 82641-AA010 or 82641-AA020 (both work, AA020 is the updated number, according to Toyota parts - and at the time of writing this, there are 0 (as in none) AA020s available in the USA!). see photo for part number detail.

back of integration relay (note the socket near the top, this means the module has to be carefully pryed off):

Somebody switched the fuses...ouch.
Ebay The integration relay, or someone will come along this site and need to buy one at some point. They do fail, and are not the easiest to find.

right, eBay is what i was thinking as well.
meanwhile, i had to see what was inside the mysterious relay integration module. here is what i found:

I seem to have exactly the same problem that you did...dome light, automatic locks, etc. Which fuse did you end up replacing and where did you find it? Many thanks.

What year Camry do you have? It can be different, depending on the year.
