Toyota Camry Fuse and Electrical Questions



  • kiawahkiawah Posts: 3,666
    When you say they quit working, do you mean that the outside lights light up but don't flash??? or that the outside lights don't light up by either the hazard or turn signal switch?

    There are two fuses as part of this circuitry, the 7.5A Turn, and the 10 A Flasher. Both of those feed the hazard warning switch. After the hazard warning switch, power is fed to the Flasher. The flasher then feeds the turn signal switch.

    So problem could be the fuses, the hazard switch, or the flasher.

    The flasher is down under the dash, on the left. It's NOT in the fuse box under the dash by your left knee.
  • They don't light up or flash. The hazard doesn't work either. I presume it's the same lights, right?

    So how how I get to the flasher on the left? Should I remove the panel under there?

    Good luck.
  • Great! Thanks! I'll try it! So, just to make get to it...I should remove the panel under the steering column? Or how do I get to this area?

    Let you know how it goes.

  • Did it! WooHoo!!
    Thanks a million for all your help!!! :)
  • I have been searching for an answer to a perplexing car problem(s) with my '93 Camry.

    1. My headlights started flickering on and off, eventually stopped working. When he left turn signal is used they turn on - a right signal turns them on. Either way they don't stay on for long.

    2. The brights work but only if I hold the lever down; leaving them on they work the same as the regular lights.

    3. My entire car shut down while I was driving; I couldn't turn it back on or shift into neutral so it could be pushed into a local gas station. Then it turned back on and I'm not sure why.

    Please help me figure out what's wrong - I don't know if my fuses are overheating or relays or something. I'd like to figure it out so I can fix it at home - anything helps. Thanks!!

    Is this a USA vehicle, or Canadian vehicle? Electrically they are different in this headlight area.

    Do I understand your high beam situation correctly. When you hit the 'flash' function the high beams will come on, but normally they won't stay in the on position.

    When you turn your headlights on and get them you have taillights at the same time that the headlights are on?

    You haven't responded and I'll be out for a number of days, so let me give you some additional info.

    If I assume that you are a USA vehicle and not Canada, and assume that your taillights do work when your lights are on, and assume that you are able to flash your high beams, then your problem would be either your light control switch is bad, or the integration relay.

    There are additional tests that should be performed with a meter to definitively prove before you tear into your steering wheel.
  • I apologize - yes, I believe that is true. The taillights work but the headlights don't.

    Please let me know some of the tests/how to run them when you get a chance. Thank you!
  • What is the best test to run on these?
  • kiawahkiawah Posts: 3,666
    The link I posted is a document, which has the test to run on each pin setting with the expected results. These can be done with a digital volt/ohm meter.

    If all of this is greek to you and/or you haven't worked on vehicles before, you should consider taking it to a repair shop. You have a good idea of what the problem is, and can get their estimates up front as to what they would charge to do the repair.
  • Thanks! Do you mind emailing the pictures to me, they are rather small when I try to download them from the page.
  • for some strange reason my park lights stopped working...both at the same time. Is there a fuse that might of caused this issue and if so where is the located because i dont have a fuse diagram in my car..thanks :cry:

    I have exactly the same problem as salsaqueen on exactly the same car. Unfortunately, I can't figure out where the flasher is based on the three jpegs you posted. Do you have a larger version available?
  • kiawahkiawah Posts: 3,666
    Open the 'flasher 1', and zoom in with your browser if you need to the middle of the picture. It is marked where the flasher is in the junction box.

    Find the junction box in your car that is shaped like the one in the picture, positioned the way it is, in the area where that junction box is. Once you have located the junction box, then look at your junction box closely where the arrow is pointing to the flasher.

    when you say 'both', do you mean all 'four' of the corners don't have any parking lights?

    Is your license plate light out, as well?
  • front park lights are the issue i dont have any at all....but the light above the back plate works fine...i just figured it was a fuse and dont know which one to change out thanks
