Question about 1984 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

84 Toyata Camry start relay will not click after trying to jumpst

Car sat for a day and a half with the lights on, tha auto off circuit did not work as normal. we will now have to always manual off which is ok. It was dark and I did not have tools handy so I jumpstarted the car without removeing a battry cable. The camry start relay clicked one time and after that the start relay just does not respond and it acts like a dead battery but the battery is charged. even with the jump connected it will make no effort to engage the starter. I am new to toyota products and do not know were the fuse links, relays, etc are located to check them.

    It seem to me to be like power was not making it down the wire to to solinoid so I started with the basics of just cleaning the battery posts and terminals. They actually did not look to bad but I cleaned all and walla the starter turns over with and the car starts great. It must have been coincident that the problem happened at time of jumping.

You have a ground issue.Current from another circuit is running through the lights to get to ground. this causes them to burn out quickly.You need to do a real detailed visual check.A good component wiring diagram and component locator is a requirement here.

My 1995 toyota camry horn works sometimes

Most horn sytems on vehicles have power to the horn, and the horn
button simply completes the circuit to earth.
Check to make sure the earth lead bolted to the front panel is clean and tight, check also that there isn't a horn relay under the fuse box cover, it may be faulty.
You will need to make sure that at least one of the wires to the horn has 12 volts going to it, if not, the fuse may have blown.
Hope this helps.

My daughter's 1994 camry power windows suddenly stopped working. All at once. We had arrived home and were closing the windows when suddenly they stopped working. Also the brake light is always on,...

I work an a neighbor's Camry (she's 84) and I have learned that these cars have issues with the harnesses as they pass through the door jambs-first, check fuses though, at the driver side kick panel and under the hood at the power distribution center. Check the relays too, and you car has circuit breakers, you push the reset with a paper clip to reset it. They are great cars but they do electrical stuff sometimes, just look at your owners manual for locations of the fuses to start.

Headlight problem: 84 Toyota SR5 4wd wagon. When I got the car the high beams didn't work. Replaced both bulbs, still didn't work. Returned bulbs and replaced again, everything worked. A few weeks...

Have you tried replacing the relay as the internal contacts do eventually get to a point, because they switch latge currents, where they do not make a proper contact ? From memory,Toyata vehicles of that decade , the headlight relay was used to switch the earth side of the headlight circuit and operated by toggling between the high and low beam circuits. They also had a separate fuse for each of the the high and low circuits rated around 15 - 20 Amps. You could use a test lamp or multi meter on the contact pins on the rear of the globe socket to check if power is getting the globes. Also check any points where earth leads are attached to body near the relay box as a bad earth could also attribute to the problem. If necessary disconnect, clean thoroughly by removing any paint or corrosion an reconnect securely.

Heater &air wont work

Resistor , check it out. Conect power to the motor direct , see if it rotates. Hot wire it with a fuse and a swich through the resistor for different speeds. It will be manual not auto unless you want to change the module. Re calibrate the vent doors , and do a diagnostic if you have tha auto modul . Vitally
