DO you have the usual hot air temp from the heater? If not, then the thermostat is bad, if so, then the sender unit for the temp guage is bad. It is easy to find the sender on a 4 cyl if that's what you have. If you look at a new OEM sender one you can find the old one. Not expensive, but I would try Rock Auto before the dealer. The thermostat requires draining the coolant to change, the sender does not (if you move quickly). (the dealer will charge you the "drain the coolant rate" to change the sender, but don't expect them to do it that way!)
#600 of 727 95 camry dome light problem
Feb 16, 2010 (9:30 pm)
dome light started working only when one door (RR) was open, then a different one (RF), now none. did work on "on" position of dome light switch once, before seeming to dia completely. I think bulb is good.
Is it the integration relay?

In this circuit, the +12 V goes thru the fuse, and then to the dome light. So the bulb always has 12 volts on it. As I'm sure you know, the switch on the dome light determines what turns it on. If you move the switch to the ON position, then you are connecting a ground wire to the other side of the bulb, which turns the bulb on.
If you turn the switch to the SWITCHED position, then it is controlled by the integration relay. One of the inputs to the integration relay, is a wire that comes from all of the 4 door switches.
I'd suggest you focus first on the dome light. Get a voltmeter, and verify that you have +12v (actually it would be more like 13-14 volts), on one side of the bulb. Measure with one probe of your voltmeter on metal ground somewhere like underneath the dash, and the other probe on the end of the bulb that is connected to the fuse.
Assuming proper voltage, then verify that when you flip to the ON position, that the bulb lights. If it doesn't, then either the bulb is bad, or the grounding wire for dome lights isn't connecting real good to metal.

any info too help solve why my toyota turn off when I'm braking I know it has something to do with the intake area of the car because if I remove one of the vaccum lines it run's better

Check your air-duct from the intake to the Air Cleaner Filter. Squeeze the duct while the car is running. This will block air flow, and the engine will try to stall. Some of these ducts develope a small crack, and will leak more air when you do this test. This will cause the engine to stall out. This is because the air is now coming through the wide open crack and by-passing the air flow sensor inside the filter.
Braking and then engine stalling, could be less vacuum going to the engine. The brakes have a vacuum booster. Its stores engine vacuum while the engine runs to help ease the brakes pressure required to apply the brakes. I guess this could cause the engine to stall too if defective.
A test of booster is to start the car with the brakes applied. The pedal should move if it is working right.I think you have to push the brakes about 10 times first to bleed off the old vacuum before you start the car.
#605 of 727 95 Toyota Camry - Starting Troubleshooting
Feb 21, 2010 (6:16 pm)
I have a '95 Camry that ran excellent and about 4 months ago I bought a truck, kept the Camry to drive for the mpg but ultimately I stopped driving it and it just sat in the driveway. Yesterday when I went to start it the battery was completely dead, so I first tried to charge it (battery charger read error) so I took it to Auto Zone to have them charge it. Come to find out the battery had a bad cell and was no good. I got a new battery and also went through and checked my fuses, which let me find out that the alternator fuse was blown. I replaced the fuse and then attempted to start the car but it would not start. While attempting to start it, the engine is turning over but while troubleshooting became aware that there is no spark between the plug wire and distributor cap. I have traced it all the way back to the igniter but donít want to replace it if I donít have to because I thinking and believe it has something to do with the anti-theft system. The car has been extremely reliable and over the past 5 years I have had very minor problems (if any other than normal maintenance) with it before. Also the battery was only 2 1/2 years old and work flawlessly prior to the vehicle sitting for the 4 months. So my question really is what would cause the battery to go completely dead and get bad cylinder, while also blowing the alternator fuse? Ultimately, what do you believe or suspect the problem to be? Just an FYI, when the battery wouldn't take a charge I did attempt to jump the Camry with cables, so I think (just a guess, don't know for sure at all) that could have caused the alternator fuse to blow. The make and model of the Anti-Theft System is a Omega REC-11+ and I have the two original transmitters that came with it. Let me know if there is any additional information you need to further determine or narrow down where the problem exist. Thanks

You may have blown either the fusible link, or the AM2 fuse. Pull the AM2 fuse, and with a voltmeter check to see if you have 13 volts on one of the legs in the socket. If no voltage there, then your fusible link is blown. If voltage there, then with an ohmmeter check out the AM2 fuse.
