    what size motor in that celica. i was kinda busy at work sorry buddy.

  • Brian Turnbull Dec 07, 2012

    That's ok apramky, I dont know why but when I first posted my tacho problem it was under the heading (1992 Toyota Corolla) but I noticed that when posted on forrum it was under the (Problem with 2000 Toyota Celica) post. So to sort things out, I own a 1992 Toyota Corolla which has a 1600cc fuel injected motor with electronic ignition. As a base model my car does not have a tacho and so buying a digital tacho I need to know how to find tacho pulse wire coming out from electronic ignition module. Hope ou can help me now you have the full story, thanks.

Sorry, was not available at your time. Since the blue light comes on, this tells me that the hi-beam fuse is good. Go to the pass side headlamp, and, behind it, remove the connector for the inop bulb, and remove the bulb. Examine the filament on the bulb. Is it broken in half? If so, you need two hi-beam bulbs. Get back to me if you need more info.

If you want the check engine light to stay off, make sure that the converter is a direct fit, and not a universal. It should work fine then.

SOURCE: 1992 Toyota Corolla CV Joint

You can pick up an entire re manufactured axle assembly at your local auto parts store. In order to replace the assembly you will need to disconnect the tie rod end and the ball joint. Remove the spindle nut. Push the axle stub out of the hub. Now with a suitable container under the axle to catch spilled fluid pry the axle from the transmission housing. Install is the reverse of removal. For more detailed instructions and diagrams go to vehicle repair guides.

Speedometerworks, but odometer/tripmeter stopped

The odometer/trip meter work together via a IC and pulse motor. I just replaced the Instrument cluster in my 94 Corolla DX. I purchased a used cluster that had 230,000 miles showing( mine was 199,000). It' a "plug and play" system, electronic analog. The cluster I purchased the trip meter didn't function, I removed the speedometer from the cluster and applied some silicone spray to the plastic gears and now it's working, (the plastic gears are very fragile and after many miles and years they are prone to breakage). If you are lucky this might be a solution, If not buy a used instrument cluster and install it yourself and hope for the best (used). I didn't have a tachometer on my original cluster so I purchased a cluster with a Tach. The 94 DX and LE should be "plug and play",not sure about the CE. The change is quite simple tow screws remove the bezel, 4 screws remove the cluster, unpluy the connectors, 2 white 1 blue.The cluster was $55.00

Trying to hook a tachometer to a 93 gmc seirra 1500 350 were does the green wire go?

The "Green" wire from the tachometer should be attached to the negative side of the ignition coil only, and usually (but not always) it is a black wire with a white stripe or it is a solid white wire that will come off from the negative side of the ignition coil and often has a tab on the wire that says "Test" or "Tach" and the wire ends with an open black connector that is used for connecting a diagnostic device or tachometer for diagnostic purposes, and this is the wire that the green wire from the after-market tachometer should attach to. The "Red" wire should be attached to an "ignition" source connection on the fuse panel and have battery power when the key is in the "Run" position only, the "Yellow" or "White" wire should be connected to the "LPS" source on the fuse panel, and the "Black" wire should be connected to a good ground source and if the tachometer is not properly grounded then you will get a primary voltage shock from the ignition coil every time that you touch something metal inside of the vehicle. Let me know if you require any further assistance.

92 toyota corolla dx lights wont shut off

Headlights are wired to receive a constant "hot" even when your keys are out of the ignition. Your problem, more than likely, is in the switch. Depending on what type of switch you have, you can expect to pay between $20-$80 for a new one.
