#74 of 84 08 TOYOTA COROLLA FAILING PIECE AT A TIME
Sep 04, 2012 (10:31 am)
Three months ago, battery died and had it replace. Short time after, power lock on drives side door stopped working. 2 months later, power lock on drives side stopped working. 1 month later, rear door on passenger side when out. Now fan blower is acting up. It works sometimes. When it does work, speed fluctuates on its own; stops, then starts again. It still cools but the fan has a mind of its own; works when it wants. I was thinking an electrical short but have no clue at this point. I will need professional help, however, trying to get an idea... because I don't want to get railroaded. Help!
#75 of 84 Shudder when drawing electrical power.
Dec 18, 2012 (5:52 pm)
2010 corolla, 72K miles. Installed HID lights, and removed them cause system couldnt handle. Have added prestige remote start/security system.(they insist it draws very little juice) Removed trunk light.
Symptom: When rolling down express power window gets to bottom, slight shudder from the engine when window motor coming to a stop (draws a bit more current before it stops) or when the battery was low at one point..., stepping on brakes causes a shudder (shudders are when waiting at red traffic lights durng idle)
My battery dosent hold up for two weeks during Sandy superstorm when car was not used. I installed dash mounted solar panel to trickle charge battery every day (150mils- very little but to compensate) I think something is draining the battery.
Suggestions for most likely culprits?? The solar cell was a quick fix (connected direct to battery)
Installation of the HID lights ccaused some wire heating just under the steering wheel so I uninstalled them, but electrical drains are usually shorts, not past heated wires.
Or maybe the alternator isnt bad but going? Rolling down power auto express window shouldnt
have any affect on idle or make even a slight shudder when at light....
I did remove the trunk light, but wondering if there are any other culprits? The security system
does keep a security code on all the time, but I popped the led.
#77 of 84 Intermittent Electrical Problems

Intermittently, when I start my 2007 Toyota Corolla the radio and clock do not work. When I get 10-15 miles down the road power returns to the radio and clock.
#79 of 84 Lights won't go off!
Feb 07, 2013 (3:47 pm)
When I turn my car (1994 Toyota Corolla) off the front side light and the tail light stay on.
I have to disconnect the battery to get them to go off. What part could short out or get stuck in the on position? I don't think it has anything to do with the light switch itself.

Why would you automatically rule out the switch stalk ? That would be the first thing that comes into my mind.

You may be right. That may be the issue. I thought (but am probably
mistaken) that my lights normally would turn off automatically after a
period of time if I forgot and left them off.
I can't remember if that is the case however.

I'm taking the car in Monday to have it looked at. It seems odd that none of the fuses, when pulled out, will make the lights go out.
I'm tested the ones for the headlamps and when pulled they make those go out. There are some fuses labeled "fog" and "tail light" and when pulled they don't make the lights in the front side go out and tail light doesn't make the light in the back go out?
