Question about 1994 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

94 Camry Wagon ignition blocked, doors self-lock, flashers on

This AM I discovered the doors on the car were locked. After unlocking, the hazard flashers immediately went on and the dash lights began flashing in sync with the flashers. The hazard light switch was in off position and flicking on and off had no effect on them. Turning the key in the ignition would not go beyond lighting up the dash warning lights. No clicks, no signs of starting as if the switch were defective. These symptoms lasted exactly 55 seconds, then the hazard flashers went off and a second later the doors automatically locked themselves. Inserting the key started the sequence all over again. Pushing the button to lock or unlock all doors on both sides would not lock the doors. After much experimenting, I disconnected the battery for a while and reconnected it. All worked properly once again, no auto hazard lights, no problems with door locks, car stared without a problem. 1. What caused this? 2. Is it likely to happen again unless problem resolved? 3. How do I fix it?

    Thanks, but what kind of bad connection and of what to what? The terminals were clean and shiny; all I did was remove the negative cable from the battery, then put it back, essentially cutting all electrical power to the vehicle for few moments.

You may have had a bad connection at the battery that would cause this kind of problem

your anti theft device is activated,you need to lock and unlock your doors a couple times with the key fob,not the key,and then you need to put the key in the ignition and start it,if you dont have your key fob,call your car dealer to get a new one,they are programmed for each car only,you cannot bypass it.

Where is the horn and power lock relay located on a 93 dodge dynasty?


They are in the relay bank which is located above the fuse block. The glove box assembly must be removed to gain access to the relay bank. This relay bank is square in shape and contains the horn relay, turn signal flasher, hazard warning flasher, and circuit breakers for the power windows and power door locks/headlamp doors.

Hope this helps.

Keyless entry keylob want lock or unlock doors or trunk.change battery and checked all fuses.


You need to program the remote. Get in to the car and LOCK all doors with the switch on drivers side door. Take the key and insert it into the ignition cylinder in and out 6-10 times, until the flashers/hazards flash on your dash board. Or just keep putting the key in and out (nice and easy now, not fast) until you see the lights on dash flash. After the lights flash, turn the key into ACC mode to make the whole dash light up.(do not start car) .With the key in ACC position, hit any button on remote, that will make the hazards flash again. Turn key off and unlock door with switch again. Open door.DONE.
Good luck.
