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.

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.

I replaced the before cat O2 sensor in my son's avalon with a universal. It within a month started giving him engine error codes. I decided to replace it with the correct OEM part and 3 years without any trouble. I gues the universal O2 senor is just enough different that the computer has difficulty with it. Hope this helps.

My tail light, instrument panel, parking lights are not working. I checked in the owner's manual and the one fuse related to my problem is called Tail the 15A. I checked it and is not blown. I checked all of them and not one is blown and still is not working. The car is a toyota camry 1994. If anyone have an idea what can it be the problem please post an answer. thanks.

Well first off I'd replace that fuse regardless of how it looks.
My second guess would be the multi-function lighting switch on the steering column.

Thanks for answering so fast. I replace it with a new one, but it still not working. what is the multi-function lighting switch and where should i find it? what is the steering column and where it is?

That's the switch you use to turn on the headlights, work the directions, etc. As to where to find it---I'd just google it and see what comes up, also try eBay, and the dealer.
