Why doesn't my Toyota Camry have any power to the inside of the car.


it only takes 2 thing to fix this, a voltmeter and a schematic
does car run.?
headlights work, MUST BE, you said INISide ONLY (IMPLIED)
FOR SURE ITS fuse blow. my wild guess is you dont know how
many fuse boxes the car has nor their location
the operators guide covers this. lost that?
so does the TOY FSM book, factory service manual.
the main fuse box has split loads. and power feed that can be 3 paths , hot all time (head lights) ignition 1 and ignition 2 feeds.

the inside of the car has many lights, even warning lights
dome,, dash dimmer lights gauges and their lamps.
and more. so if all are dead, that means.......
no power to the ignition switch or
no power out of the switch,
if no power in , to swtich that usually means fuse blown under hood
all power comes from there, and the PDC box there.
check all fuses with a voltmeter.
and bingo. oops this fuse has 12v in but 0volts out.

Chrysler Vision hazard light


on some of these models, the hazard switch operates through its own flasher fuse. if this is the case, locating and replacing the fuse ($4) should do it. Location should be in the owners manual.

92 plymouth voyager wont start and nothing work the windows wont go down the lock and unlock button does nothing idk what the problem is i had the battery tested and the battery is fine what would cause...


Nothing works? How about the headlights, do they work? If yes, then start checking all fuses in the Power Distribution Center or Box under the hood. If no, then look for a bad maxi-fuse in the PDC, and check for a bad fusible link between the battery and the PDC. The battery positive cable goes to the starter, but a pigtail lead off the positive would go to the PDC, to distribute power to all the various circuits on the car.
When you turn the key to on, does the dash light up? If yes, at least power is getting to, and going through the ignition switch. One could then check for power on the starter solenoid wire when key was held in crank or start position.
If nothing when turning key to on-no dash lights, nothing-then check for an ignition fuse in the PDC. If fuse is good check for power being available at the ignition switch connector. If no power there, check wiring between PDC and the ignition switch-if power is up to the switch, but nothing happens with key on, no dash or warning lights, then could have a bad ignition switch.
It just sounds like a maxi-fuse has blown, or a bad fusible link. Good luck.

I HAVE PAYED $20 TO GET SOME HELP WITH MY DASH LIGHTS NOT WORKING. ALSO MY PARKING LIGHTS WON;T COME ON. ALSO MY FOG LIGHTS WON;T COME ON. I HAVE ASK YOU SEVERAL TIMES TO HELP ME. IT MAKES ME THINK. YOU...


Sorry about that, I must have missed your post or something. The park lights and the panel lights are usually on the same fuse and therefore on the same switch. The fog lamps are on a separate fuse and switch/circuit, although the is nothing to prevent either of the fuses going at the same time. Look at the fuses first, if they are blown replace them, but if they blow again some more investigation will be required. The parking lamps/panel lights are unlikely to have a relay, but the fog lights may.

The fuse must be in the main fuse box. The position and function of the fuses is normally marked on the inside of the fuse box cover and also in the owner's handbook. If you don't come right with these, work your way through the fuses looking for a blown one. To ease your search the fuses you are looking for should be around 15 to 20 amps.

My lights wont come on when i turn the switch on!


I would check around the turn signals first. see if there is any current at the wires coming in to the light. (take 2 wires and a light bulb if you dont have a current meter)

and ofcoarse I would check the fuse box inside the car and under the hood to make sure there is nothing strange goin on.

Not your typical brake light problem...


hello what i would do first disconnect the wires off the brake light switch test the power wire to make sure you have power to the switch if you do contact them to bypass the switch completely test see if your lights are lit if not i would trace the wiring back to the sockets contacts inside might be corroded or wires in the socket are not contacting the metal tab or broken at the crimp they sell replacement sockets you can splice into the harness if you dont have power at the break light wires you need to trace wires back to fuse panel first check to make sure there is not a secondary fuse box under your hood usually on drivers side near the strut tower usally says fuses goodluck please rate

Nothing electrical works


the main terminal is a heavy red wire attached to the fuse block it should be clean and tight. also you can hook a test light from the battery neg. to the terminal it should light. if it doesn't light you could have a bad engine ground (primary ground). or a poor connection tot he main fuse block terminal previously mentioned
