Tip & How-To about Toyota Camry

Toyota AC Light flashing

Here is a real money-saving tip for you Toyota owners, with a problem of your AC light flashing on the instrument panel, when the AC is on.

You may also expericence a 'no cooling condition', also.

This info pertains to the following Toyota vehicles:

2001 thru 2004 Camry, Echo and Celica

2002 thru 2004 4Runner, Corolla, MR2 Spyder

2003 thru 2004 Highlander, Matrix, Sienna and Solara

Toyota is aware of this situation, and has produced a technical service bulletin to rectify the AC light flashing condition.

What has happened here is that the AC relay
(noted as the 'AC MG CLUTCH' relay in the relay box, under the hood)
has gotten weak over time, and is not properlying transmitting power to engage the AC compressor clutch.

Toyota has an improved relay available, and can be purchased at any Toyota parts department.

The affected relays have the following part number stamped on them:
90987-02022

The improved relay part number is 90987-02028

The repair is quite easy, all you have to do is identify that you have a 90987-02022 relay. If so, purchase a new relay, 90987-02028, and simply remove the old one, and fit the new one into the relay box.

Once the new relay is installed, the AC light flashing problem will be cured.

We hope that this tip saves you the money that you would have paid a repair facility to daignose the problem for you.

Thanks for reading my Tip!

It appears that you have a bad intermittent connection and those are hard to fix because most of the time, like when you want to work on it, everything is fine! But yes, check the wiring and the switches involved in affected circuits you described.

where is the fuse box location under the instrument panel inside the 2000 toyota corolla. While the all the lights are ok, the signal flash and the hazard light flash do not flash.


The turn signal is on an intermittent switch. The relay or fuse under the hood might be bad. If you can't find the one inside, look for a cover that says FUSE BOX on it. If no luck, refer to your owners manual.
