Question about 1999 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

Could all this be an electrical problem?

Haven't worked for a while: driver's seat reclining, horn, radio/CD window/light, driver's door lock/unlock (I do it manually).
Car recently slightly rear-ended & now trunk release lever doesn't work - have to use key and driver's seat does move forward/backward.

    I was hoping that ALL of my problems would turn out to be related to an electyrical situation of some sort. the info you gave may help me to find the cause of one problem: the trunk not opening when I use the interial release latch. I'll try your idea this weekend. Any ideas on why all the other stuff doesn't work? Could the driver's seat & trunk problems be related to the rear-ender?

    I took it to a local garage. All is now fixed and running except for the driver's door still has to be locked manually and I can deal with that.

    How do I remove this posting?

    your problem with the seat if it is electric may be in the door wiring as well it is mostly the ground wire that is broken and the ground runs lots of things hope this is the information you were looking for

How to replace low beam bulb on toyota avalon XL 2009


Here's what I did to change the driver's side halogen low beam bulb #9006. Do so at your own risk.


1. First ensure fuses are OK. There are four(4) 15A fuses in the fuse box under the hood - drivers side. All are clearly mapped out on underside of fuse box cover. I used the continuity tester circuit on a VOM to ensure they were OK.

2. Remove large plastic shroud that runs across from one side of the top front under the hood of vehicle to the other side. 5 plastic pins held mine in place. Once off -- you'll be able to see your vehicles radiator cap. Removing this helps provide some additional access and leverage to better work with.

3. Remove battery negative cable - 10mm socket

4. Remove battery hold down bracket - rod - one(1) 10mm bolt at front - one(1) 10mm nut on rod. Deep socket 10mm helps with the 10mm nut.

5. Remove battery positive cable - 10mm socket

6. Remove battery and plastic battery tray

7. You should see the halogen low beam bulb #9006 in front of the fuse box(drivers side). Mine has a brown electrical plug connected to it. It helps to first remove and place out of the way - the parking light which is just to the left - the assembly for mine is light gray in color. Doing so gets that wire out of the way. One less distraction when you reach in to remove the low beam halogen bulb #9006.

8. Remove electrical connection from halogen low beam bulb #9006. There's a locking tab on the bottom - press in and while doing that - push down on the electrical connector from the top. It comes off without a great deal of effort.

9. Remove halogen low beam bulb #9006 by turning counter-clockwise - looking at the bulb from the back. Mine did not want to twist loose right away. Go slowly - take your time. It should eventually come loose. #9006 bulb came out easily even with the fuse box nearby.

10. Install new halogen low beam bulb #9006. I opted for a $10 Wal-Mart Sylvania #9006.

11. Reconnect electrical connection to the new halogen low beam bulb #9006.

12. Clean battery tray and terminals on battery + connections on battery cables.

13. Install battery tray and battery

14. Connect positive battery cable to battery - 10mm

15. Connect hold-down and rod + one(1) 10mm bolt at front and one(1) 10mm nut that goes on rod at rear.

16. Connect negative battery terminal - BUT - before doing so - have your remote locking/unlocking device handy. As soon as you connect the negative battery cable to the batteries negative terminal - the horn will sound(alarm). Quickly depress the UNLOCK button on your vehicles remote. Finish tightening the negative cable. You should also see that the low beam is once again functional as it will come on when the alarm is sounded.

17. Reinstall large plastic shroud and all lock down tabs

18. Start car and set clock/radio settings/etc.

19. There is a procedure to resync the power windows. The following provided by inov8 from another forum.

Copied from TSB PD002-05

NOTE:
Anytime the battery terminal has been disconnected, please initialize the driver's door
power
window and front passenger's door power window after reconnecting the
battery terminal.

With ignition switch in the "ON" position, do the following:

1. Push down and hold the driver's door power
window switch to completely open
the
window.
2. Pull and hold up the driver's door power
window switch until the window closes.
Continue holding the switch for approximately one second until the switch changes
from blinking to a constant illumination.
3. Check for proper operation of the "one-touch open and close" function by fully
pushing the switch briefly to the "DOWN" and "UP" positions.

At this time the power
window switch for the passenger's door window should
be blinking.
4. Push down and hold the passenger's door power
window switch to completely open
the
window.
5. Pull and hold up the passenger's door power
window switch until the window closes.
Continue holding the switch for approximately one second until the switch changes
from blinking to a constant illumination.
6. Check for proper operation of the "one-touch open and close" function by fully
pushing the switch briefly to the "DOWN" and "UP" positions.

Sunroof initialization is similar.


20. There is a procedure to resync power seats. Extracted from factory service doc:

Using seat switches - fully slide seat fwd. - fully recline seatback fwd. - fully raise seat cushion and head rest.

Using seat switches - fully slide the seat rearward - fully recline the seatback rearward - fully lower seat cushion and head rest.

The remote to my 2002 cadillac deville dont unlock or lock my doors or open my trunk like it used to. my power locks dont work. i got in the car last week and on car display says theft attempt, the lights...


Either via an actual theft attempt or you (or someone with your keys) not realizing that you/they actually armed the vehicle and opened the door or trunk afterwards.

Essentially this sounds like the vehicle was entered after being armed and the proper precedures not met to reset it.

The car may just need to be locked from the outside with the key (not the remote or keyless entry) while the doors are closed and windows are up, and then also unlocked with the key...

However it sounds as though you have perhaps driven it since then. If this is the case

You may want to check all your fuses and replace the ones affected by the anti theft system.
Security - Pwr Locks - Horn - Pwr Trunk Release _ Int Lights - and maybe The Emergency Flasher as well.

Be sure and check under the Dash, Hood and under the Back seat.

Cadillac recommends after a theft attempt, the vehicle may need to be serviced. So I recommend going through the fuses first, even replacing the battery in your remote fob and then if the problems still persist. have the vehicle serviced.

Good Luck and Happy Motoring

I have a 98 Nissan altima gxe and my alarm won't honk when I lock the car but the lights go off when I lock it and Wen I take the alarm off no honk or lights go off Wat can I do


holdboth the lock and unlosk buttons on your remote simultaneously for about five seconds until the lights flash and horn chirps.that should do it.if not i believe these models used a separate horn for security system.possibly fuse for this horn is bad or the horn itself is bad.to see if this horn works lower drivers window.stand outside vehicle and lock doors with remote.wait about a minute and reach in window and MANUALLY unlock and open door(do not use power door lock button)this should cause the system to activate...horn should beep and headlamps should flash.if horn beeps try my first suggestion.if it doesnt beep and just the head lamps flash check fuses and horn for security system.

Sunroof will not work


Power is supplied to the Power windows and sunroof through the power window circuit breaker. That circuit breaker is supplied power through the RAP (retained accessory power) Relay, the RAP relay also supplies power to the radio. The RAP relay is also fuse protected by the RAP fuse in the under hood fuse block. The RAP relay is energized by the BCM body control module.

The RAP relay is responsible for the radio and windows working after the igntion is turned off.

The first place to check would be the RAP fuse in the under hood fuse block and then the RAP relay in the Body fuse block.

A list of the BODY relay block located on the left side of the dash to the right of the interior fuse block is below:

(1) Park Lamp Relay (2) Courtesy Lamp Relay (3) Retained Accessory Power (RAP) Relay (4) Power Seats Circuit Breaker (5) Power Windows Circuit Breaker (6) Inadvertent Power Relay (7) Door Lock Relay (8) Headlamp Ground Relay (9) Driver Door Unlock Relay (10) Door Unlock Relay(1) Park Lamp Relay
(2) Courtesy Lamp Relay
(3) Retained Accessory Power (RAP) Relay
(4) Power Seats Circuit Breaker
(5) Power Windows Circuit Breaker
(6) Inadvertent Power Relay
(7) Door Lock Relay
(8) Headlamp Ground Relay
(9) Driver Door Unlock Relay
(10) Door Unlock Relay
(1) Park Lamp Relay (2) Courtesy Lamp Relay (3) Retained Accessory Power (RAP) Relay (4) Power Seats Circuit Breaker (5) Power Windows Circuit Breaker (6) Inadvertent Power Relay (7) Door Lock Relay (8) Headlamp Ground Relay (9) Driver Door Unlock Relay (10) Door Unlock Relay (1) Park Lamp Relay (2) Courtesy Lamp Relay (3) Retained Accessory Power (RAP) Relay (4) Power Seats Circuit Breaker (5) Power Windows Circuit Breaker (6) Inadvertent Power Relay (7) Door Lock Relay (8) Headlamp Ground Relay (9) Driver Door Unlock Relay (10) Door Unlock Relay

Door locks lock and unlock by themselves electrical


Possible the system is deactivated.
1. Sit in the driver seat, turn the key on.
2. Hit the unlock doors button 3 time (within 5 sec of each other).
3. Turn the key off and hit the unlock 3 times again.
You should get a chirp from the horn.
If this does not solve your problem, you can try the same proceedure but hit the Lock button Vs the unlock button

If remote locks and unlocks driver door but does not unlock passenger doors,then follow the advice above:
Get in the car using the key to unlock the doors. From the passenger side lock and unlock your doors using the button on the passenger door. Get out and the remote should now unlock all the doors with 2 presses.
Worked perfectly for me after several other suggestions (and dealer) failed.
