Question about 1988 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

Interior door lights won't go off

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!

SOURCE: 1999 Toyota Corolla interior door handle

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.

SOURCE: Toyota RAV 4 1.8 A - engine doesn't start after battery exchange

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

SOURCE: toyota sienna interior lights not working

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

Where is the fuel pump on a 1988 toyota corrolla station wagon


I don't know if your fuel injected or carb? If your fuel injected, probably electric fuel pump, in the gas tank. If not fuel injected, probably a mechanical fuel pump, under the hood, note picture.

Clutch always engaged


Well, if the clutch master cyl is empty the clutch will not disengage.
And if it is empty there is a leak.
Possible someone put transmission fluid into the master which would probably destroy the seals.
There should be a brake master cyl and a clutch master cyl next to each other on the firewall.
I would check the clutch master cyl next.

1988 ford taurus wagon chimes everytime i go 45+ mph and the speed light flashes... what's wrong?


You probably have the speed reminder set to 45mph. It chimes & flashes to let you know you are speeding. It will tell you how to adjust it in your owners manual. If you don't like it set it high eg: 100mph. then it won't happen.

How long does it take to replace a clutch on a 1991 toyota pickup 4 wheel drive 6 cylinder 3.0 liter engine? The clutch burnt out and I'd like to know how many hours labor it would be to replace it...


hello, it takes about 5 hours actual time for a mechanic using air powered tools and has all the equipment needed such as a transmission jack, a lift and the tools needed.
\Keep in mind that this time varies depending on the skill and experience of the mechanic, the shop can charge you whatever they feel is fair and still make a profit, most shops charge a 'flat rate' this means they have a set price for each repair procedure, this also varies with location. a shop on the east or west coast will tend to be more expensive than in the Midwest.

Hello, I recently bought a 1990 Toyota Celica 4cyl 5spd manual. The clock and cigarette lighter worked when I bought it but days later they both stopped working, I have tried looking at the fuses but...


same thing with mine. except the clock only worked once. i took it out and bought another one out of a junkyard. these cars aren't easy to find in junkyards, mainly because they are invincible, but you could try checking around.
