Question about 1988 Toyota Camry
I have a 1988 Toyota wagon. I'd bought it for my son to use, but he's now out on the west coast and I don't know how to take care of the few tricky little quirks that this car has. Anyway, there are interior door lights and they won't go on. My son says that there is some button near the key that you push, and although I found a button on the steering column, I can't seem to turn off the door lights and therefore the battery drains. Although one could just disconnect the battery cables (that is what I have done right now, as a matter of fact), I would like to know what the real solution is so that I am not scaring off potential buyers. Help!
Check door's courtesy switches (4) may be they are alwys on and then combi meter door worning light must be on. Or check the position of door interior light switch on the roof: DOOR, OFF, ON and switch it over to position OFF.

There's two screws by the handle, pull those out and you'll see how it all connects on the inside. I was able to remove my broken one, and drill a hole into the plastic where it broke and reuse it - it's lasted over 4 years now.

may sound like a dumb question but you didnt by chance hook up the battery or jumpstart the car with polarity reversed by accident at some point during this process? i would check all the underhood main fuses and interior fuses as well, what is the condition of the battery post clamps? if they are badly corroded be sure to clean them very well and wash them with a baking soda and water solution im thinking one of the cables or smaller wires that hook up at the battery is broken or possibly some freak accident happend and the computers need to be flashed at a dealer. either way i wish you luck please rate -jeff

The problem is in the sunvisor light. You will have to take the light assembly off and you will find wires have become disconnected.
