Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

Dashboard sporadically flickers in my 2008 Toyota Fortuner. Sometimes for a millisecond, enough to catch my eye and when I look down its fine again, sometimes for 5-10 seconds where its dim, as if lights are off. Anyone have an idea about this?

SOURCE: doors wont all lock at the same time on my '95

When you use your remote or insert your key in the Drivers Front door all the door locks should work at the same time by the door lock motors electrically. If you have to manually unlock the door because it will not lock or unlock by the lock motor, you need a door lock motor. The drivers and passengers front doors can unlocked with the key manually only. The rear doors you have to pull up the latch. 
If NONE of doors unlock electrically with the remote or drivers door lock, intermittently or all the time, you will need a Central Locking Electronic Control Module. Pressing the remote button you will hear the "beep", but no door locks will fire at all. 
If you have a few odd door locks not working intermittently or not at all, you will need a new door lock motor for each door lock that malfunctions. You can hear if the door locks are working electrically. Yes, they are common problem. 
If you can hear the door lock motor working but the door still doesn't unlock you need to take the door panel off and lubricate the door latch assembly and work the lock, loosening it up. This is common as well.
Sometimes a bad door lock motor can blow the central locking fuse. You will notice it because it will take a second or two longer to lock and unlock compared to the others. If the door lock motors seem fine, install a the next step up in amperage fuse. (From 15 AMP to a 20 AMP)

Hi I have a Toyota Corolla 2008. Its dashboard/ odometer and parking lights not working. RAC guy checked all the fuses and they were fine. May i know whats the issue?

Did you hit the dimmer switch by mistake? It's usually a rotary dial by your left knee, sometimes higher. It controls how bright you want your backlighting on your gauge cluster to be.

My 2008 Camry was running fine, no warning lights on. Came out of the grocery store and it would not start, all the lights game on but it acted is if the battery was low. Got a jump start, drove two blocks...

It may be that the battery is bad where it won't take a charge from the alternator so it should be checked for that using test equipment, most autoparts stores like Autozone, Kragen, Advance Auto provide this service at no charge, since it's an 08 there is a chance that it may still be covered under the toyota factory which is 3yrs/36,000 miles for electrical parts.
