Question about 1992 Toyota Celica

1 Answer

92 Celica ST model. Exposed wiring in running lights.

Hello, I found some exposed wiring in the running lights and before I could get them fixed with electrical tape, or similar, the exposed wiring hit a solid metal surface and shorted out the running lights. I'm fairly certain it's blown a fuse or shorted a relay but I can't find the proper fuse box or relay that controls this. Do you have a schematic for the wiring/fuse boxes with description? Thanks, Stan

    O.K. I've located that fuse box, but I don't have a cover that show's which relays/fuses go to what. All fuses are good; so, I'm thinking it must be a relay. Is this located in the same relay/fuse panel area? Thanks, for your help. Stan

    I did as you've requested and no luck. Is there a possibility it being a different area? Maybe dash light fader switch? The dash lights went out also as a result of this problem. Thanks, Stan

The fuse box in under the dash, up high, close to the drive-side inner fender. You cannot see it if you are NOT laying in the driver side footwell looking upo to the left.... it is rectangular, about 3-4 inches long x 2 incles wide. Possibly a black or cream coloured cover.

    I'll trade you this for a FixYa rating:

    On the fuse box, directly above the fuses, there are two relays that are identical. The one on the left is the rear defogger relay, the one on the right is the taillamp relay. Switch them & see if this helps.

I have a 94 toyota celica st that had airbags deployed before and had a wire fire now the wiring is fixed and now it won't start and shows a airbag light that stays on..

Apparently it wasn't fixed exactly correctly? I would take it back, and have them check it out, it all should be under warranty, hopefully?

1994 Escort Station Wagon. Radio stopped working awhile ago. Wiring started burning. Believe it may have burnt & exposed other wiring. Left blinker & brake light no longer work. Have found exposed...

Hi, You maybe able to repair some of the wires. But you still need to find why it did that. It would have to be a short some where. You can buy new wiring harnesses from your local auto parts stores.

My tail lights and dash light doesn't work. I replaced the fuse, and as soon as i put the fuse in, it blows immediatley. What can cause this? Please help.

Check around the tail lights for rust. There is a dead short somewhere. Could be on the drivers side under the strip just inside the door on the floor. Usually you have to take four to five screws out to expose the wiring. I found one time where the left foot would rest that the wires were rotten causing a short. Electical problems are not fun. Happy hunting.

95 Jaguar XJ6 Cannot locate the Alarm/Keyless Receiver

On both my 90 and 92, it is in the overhead lighting unit holding the sunroof switch and the overhead lights. There is a white round ball exposed on that unit and that is exposed and easy to see.

Battery question

Yes, a group 34 will work as long as it fits in your battery box. The main thing to look out for is hood clearance, but the 34 is actually a little shorter, so you're good.

Car won't start HELP PLEASE


I would start, since it is cold outside by checking to make sure the battery is in good shape. If it is not, it will run but when the cold comes it will eventually not turn over. Note: Turning on the lights to see if they are bright is not a good check for the batteries abilty to crank the car. If you have a Checker or Autozone or other auto parts store see if they can test your battery for you.

With the sudden stop starting I would also suspect possibly the fuel pump or the pump relay.

Good Luck...

check in the trunk there should be a twist and pull plug, possibly covered by carpet and or paneling.
