Toyota Camry - Repair and Owners Manuals



  • Hi. My name is Paul, and I am glad this site is here. Looks like there is a lot of good info on all different cars here. As far as my screen name--I live in North Pole (Yes; Santa has his own house here); and I have seen it to -65 below zero
    here-depending on what part of town you are in...

    I own a 1989 Toyota Camry and am looking for a manual or pictures of repair procedures. I love the car and it developed problems in the last 3 months :sick:

    :confuse: Does anyone know if there is an online manual or instructions with illustrations for repair of cars of any kind? Preferably for no cost, since I have no credit card.
    If anyone can help, that would be good. And I found a site or 2 that could help to at least diagnose problems with all different kinds of stuff.

    Hope we can help each other out soon==========
    Girlfriend has a 2003 Ford Focus-info on that would be apprecieated also.

  • I have two questions which I hope someone can help.

    1 I own a 2nd hand Japanese manufactured Camry 2.4 and the owner's manual is in Japanese. I asked the workshop for an English version but they said that there was none. Does anyone know where I can get one?

    2) The internal lights will light up when I walk near the car as the car sensed my 'key'. And the lights will also come on when I switch off the engine. I like this feature. However, recently I think I pressed some button and the internal lights doesn't light up anymore when I am near the car or when I switch off the engine. What do I have to do to get it working again?

    You might want to check eBay for an owner's manual. My Camrys are older and don't have the light feature/smart key you are referring to.

    I recently acquired a 2nd Hand Camry from Singapore which came with Japanese manuals. It is a good car with lots of features that I am unable to fully exploit as the manuals are in a language that I cannot read and understand. I have searched the net to no avail and if there is anybody out there with the English manuals please help.

    How to turn off the maintenance warning light in 2006 toyota corolla ?

    I am the original owner of a 2002 Camry. I have never replaced the suspension, until now. Next week, my mechanic will fix the suspension. He told me I need new struts in the front and in the back. The parts are not that expensive, so its labor, that takes up most of the bill. Has anyone else had this expeience yet, and what can you tell me about it?

    Make sure you have the car aligned after those parts are replaced.

    It's explained in the owner's manual.

    Your car is 7 years old, and probably has more than 50,000 miles on it by now. It's time (past time probably) to have that work done. No, struts themselves aren't usually that expensive - but they can be a bear to install if you don't know what you are doing or have the right tools. It is well worth paying someone to do. You'll also need an alignment afterwards. Any alignments you may have had with worn struts will be off after installation of the new least that's what's been explained to me.

    Truth is, depending on your situation, you haven't noticed the gradual deterioration in performace because you drive it most every day. 9 times out of 10, new struts make it feel almost like a new car.

    I have a 1995 and did that very thing last year... actually, all four of the struts. It ran me almost $1,100 all told, but it was well worth it. The car rides like new again, afterward. Prior to this, it was bouncing a lot, and the tires were getting eaten up prematurely.

    Has anybody had experience troubleshooting cruise controls on the older Camrys? I have a 1995 which is still a sweet car, but the cruise fails intermittently. The dash light comes on, but when you try to engage, it may or may not do so. If it's not going to, the light blinks 5 times and shuts off. Turning off the car resets it, and it may or may not work next time.

    This problem has been getting more frequent over the past few years, to the point that it now only works infrequently. The Toyota garage has looked at it but has no clue, they say I would have to "come it with it not working" -- and how likely is THAT to happen? It sounds like it might be some weak relay that could be replaced, or maybe even a leaky vacuum hose -- as opposed to their suggested solution of replacing the entire unit, to the tune of $1,200, which MAY fix the problem, if the problem is not the computer module rather than the cruise.

    Actually, you might want to try the Older Camry Maintenance and Repair discussion. You might be able to turn up something related using the search, but if not, that's a more likely place for you to get some feedback on this.

    Hope we can help!

    Speed sensor inspection:

    (a) Connect the positive (+) lead from battery to terminal
    1 and negative (–) lead to terminal 2.
    (b) Connect the positive (+) lead from tester to terminal 3
    and negative (–) lead to terminal 2.
    (c) Revolve shaft.
    (d) Check that there is voltage change from approx. 0 V
    to 1 1 V or more between terminals 2 and 3.
    HINT: The voltage change should be 4 times par each
    revolution of the speed sensor shaft.
    If operation is not as specified, replace the sensor.

    If that is not the problem, verify that the switches turning the cruise on/off/set work correctly. Unplug it, and check operation with an omhmeter.

    So you don't have the owners manual supplied in the glovebox?

    Not sure, but I think if you go to, you can download an owners manual.
