I have a 1994 MR2 non turbo. the sidelights have suddenly ceased working, the front headlamps work fine along with the brakelights and indicators, but i have no side lights from or rear, no front fogs and no dashboard dials illumination lamps. does anyone have any ideas? relay perhaps?

Hello, and welcome to FixYa. Please allow me to assist you.
The MR2 auto transaxles are very reliable units. Just change the ATF with the correct fluid every 30,000 miles. If it has high mileage, 90 + K miles, and is a dirty colour, I'd recommend a transmission flush. This will remove all of the dirty fluid from the system.
The MR2 non-turbo was a fun car, and had very few comon failures.
Try to stay away from the turbo cars, the turbos are know to fail, and the parts and labour to replace the turbo is very expensive.
The MR2s are rather quirky when it comes to servicing the cooling system, you have to bleed the air out. The necessary procedure is in the owner's manual, or online.
Other than those items, the MR2 is a very decent and reliable car. A little noisy, with the engine right behind you, but, that is part of the fun.
Sounds like the condensor fan relay is "sticking" - you are sure this is the condensor fan, and not the radiator cooling fan? As electric radiator cooling fans often run after the car is turned off - this is normal - If you are sure it is the condensor fan and it is on with the AC off - Id bet it was the relay responsible (versus the AC control unit) - Locate and remove the relay - if you have a comparable one you can substitue (Make 100% sure it uses the same plug and wiring schematic) and try that - if it now works properly you can try to locate one at your parts store....Hope that helps some....DD
Try under the hood near the right side of the car. There are also a couple of fuse boxes with fuses for things under the motor bonnet in the rear. They should be labeled and they are covered with black covers. Hope this helps.
I bet the actuator arm popped off. It has a ball and socket joint on a spring loaded arm. turn the headlamps on and see if you can pull the headlamp up by hand. If so you can pop the end of the arm back onto the ball joint. If not you can look at the MR2OC.com forums for more possibilities.
