Sorry - I didn't fully answer your question. If it is the short in the wires (your back up lights are probably blowing the fuse when you shift it) then this will be your cost.
1.59 for wire connectors
12.99 for the connector pliers
.59 for the electric tape to add extra protection
2.99 for extra wire sheath
1.99 for some extra wire to replace the damaged wiring
Don't just splice the wires with a twist and tape, use wire connectors, please.

As you have figured out, the 10A GAUGE fuse feeds a lot of different things.
I would suggest you check two things first, which are typical problems:
- open the trunk, and lay in on your back with your head up by the drivers side hinge. Look for any frayed wires that may scrape metal when the trunk lid is opened shut. Make sure you don't lock yourself in.
- check the switch up on the transmission, which detects when it's in reverse and turns on the back up lights.

Had a 96 Camry blowing fuse when I put it in gear. The brake pedal was hitting a wire that had a bare spot worn in over the years, since you use the brake to shift into drive.

May 08, 2010 (4:09 pm)
All of a sudden my power windows, ac, automatic seatbelts, power windows all stopped working. The car's battery is pretty new (less than a year old) and the 15-20 fuses are all fine.
Can anyone help me?

Thanks this was very useful information. I used this along with the below link to replace my fused Dome Light.
How does one pluck out a fuse that is sitting in theFuse/Relay box inside the Dashboard compartment? Is there a cheap plier that I can buy somewhere that I can just leave it in the box when I don't need it?

May 16, 2010 (6:27 am)
The Parking Brake light, which says 'BRAKE' on the dashboard comes on sometimes when I start my car. I don't use my Parking Brake at all. It is obviously a wiring loose connection. Anyone has faced this problem before and how was it resolved?

Probably a grounded wire at the emergency brake lever, or a stuck or broken micro-switch down there. You might be able to remove the boot surrounding the lever and see what's up down there.

I just bought a 1997 Camry LE and I noticed that the Dashboard is totally dark and does not have any light to be able to see the Dashboard controls like clock, radio etc,. I cannot even see what gear the vehicle is running on!
Is this normal or is there a fused bulb that should be illuminating the dashboard I should be checking for?
Another thing I noticed was that the radio will not work till I switch on the Headlight!! It looks to me like the radio wiring got somehow hitched to the Head light circuit. Anyone has any ideas how to fix this?

Suspect that someone hacked into the wiring (possibly a replacement radio), and possibly cut into the wire that provided power to the dash lights, and used it to feed power to the radio.
