1998 toyota camry electrical problems

1998 toyota camry
My cars check light engine came on, and we went to autozone and got it checked, and it come back as a short/poor connection. Also whenever I turn on my head lights the reverse and trunk open lights come on. Is there anyway to find this short without pulling my whole car apart or has anyone had this problem before?

SOURCE: Electrical problems

Regarding the short circuit: Open the trunk lid. Locate & examine the wiring that comes from the driver side of the trunk, and snakes up the driver side trunk lid support. Follow the wire harness down under the rear parcel shelf; untape the wiring harness. You are prob going to find some broken/shorted wires here. This is a very, very common problem.

Regarding the check engine light; sorry, without a DTC from Autozone, I cannot comment on a solution.

Hard to say, but probably not major. Sounds like your transmission output shaft sensor. Can you have the car scanned for trouble codes? Many parts stores, such as autozone and advance will perform a free scan for you.

There should be an access panel.
Pull up on the back seat at the front edge to dislodge the locking clips.
Note that the clips can be a really tight fit.
