#982 of 1159 2000 Toyota Camry Gauge Fuse Blowing
Jul 18, 2010 (6:16 am)
Hello everyone. This is my first time and i need tons of help. 2 Months ago my fuse started blowing in my car. this fuse controls my auto lights, windows, and gauges. so i changed the light and it worked fine for a month then it started again. I took it to a shop and they told me it was the speed sensor so i changed that and it worked for another month. now its doing it again but different. When i put the car in park or start it in park the fuse will blow every time. I thought it was a short in the speed sensor but i unplugged it and it still did the same thing. if i use my manual shift put it in N before i start the car and then D it works. But as long as the car is on and i put it in park the fuse will blow. Can someone help me figure out my problem i'm very stuck. Thank you

I suspect you are blowing the fuse because your back up lights are part of the same circuit. There are wires that run by the drivers side trunk hinge and they are at a very common wear spot. If you open the trunk, and look at the bar for the hinge, you will see a bundle of wires running to the trunk lid, including your back up lights. They are probably some bare wires there. If there are, cut and repair the wires properly and try to put some extra "armour" around them. That may solve your problem. That might explain why your car won't blow in Neutral, because it doesn't shift past Reverse and activate (electrify) the back up lights. Let me know if that solves it.

I have the same problem on my daughter's 1989 Camry. Would the same diagnosis apply, and if so do you have the assembly diagram for that year? Thanks in advance.
#985 of 1159 92' camry horn honking
Jul 24, 2010 (7:12 am)
My friend has a 92' camry and it overheated. The car died and the horn started honking. We towed it back to the shop and topped off the fluids. Tried to start it again and horn honks when the key is turned on. Also it isn't getting any spark now but it turns over. Any suggestions?

Well just unplug the horn to stop that nuisance for now, and work on the main engine won't start problem.
Since it appears you have a couple electrical problems going on, start with making sure the battery is good, sitting at about 13.5 to 14 volts, it's terminals are clean (with no corrosion) and tight.
Let use know what you find the battery voltage to be. You're going to need a voltmeter to check some further voltages as well.
And when it overheated, how long did they drive it, and how did it finally stop running?

The car is turning over just fine. The batt is new. I even unpluged the alarm and it still honks. I've heard that the computer will do that so you'll have to send it in.

Unplug the wire, that is connecting the horn to the harness. Find the horn, follow the wire back.
So this may be the alarm system, which is stopping the ignition from working.
What kind of alarm system is this?
#990 of 1159 HAzards and turn signals not working, relay & fuse ok, whats the solution?
Jul 29, 2010 (10:18 am)
Hi, I have a 2001 Camry, LE 4 cyl. and I accidently hit a pothole and my hazards and turn signals are not working. I had changed the relay swtich (which was burning hot when i took the old one out) and the fuse were all checked and working. I can hear a clicking sound when i push the hazard switch on the dash area above the vents but nothing is happening.
(also i have an afftermarket alarm system in the car, they have 2 fuse which are both ok and working, but when i click my alarm my lights appear to come on, both front and back so i dont think its a wire or something)
Can anyone help??????

Going to need to do a little investigation, to figure out what is working and not-working. Hopefully we can zero in on the problem.
Do this at dusk (so you can clearly see the intensity of light bulbs), with someone to help you. One person in the vehicle, the second person outside looking at the bulbs.
1.) Verify to start with, that there are no outside lights on.
2.) Next put on the brake and hold it. Verify that the rear brake lights are on, and both are BRIGHT, and there are no lights on in the front. Then release brake.
3.) Now lets check the parking lights. Turn on the parking lights, and verify that all four corners have the parking lights on, but they are DIM. Now turn lights off.
4.) Put on the left turn signal. Tell me whether the left rear is: OFF, ON BRIGHT, ON DIM, or ON BRIGHT FLASHING. Let me also know what the front left signal is doing. Then verify that the right side lights (front and back) are both off.
5.) Repeat the same process with the right side signal. Tell me what the lights are doing.
6.) Now turn on the parking lights again, and then the left turn signal while the lights are on. Do the left lights show DIM, BRIGHT, or what?
