Burnt wires mean excessive current or dead short. your unit is not fuse protected so I would say that a new unit may be the cheaper option

SOURCE: How to remove ignition cylinder from Toyota Camry 1993

Here are step-by-step instructions for the removal and re-installation of your ignition cylinder on your Toyota. Hope this sheds some light on the subject and solves your problem. Have a great day!

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. If equipped with an air bag, wait at least 90 seconds before working on the vehicle.
CAUTIONSome models covered by this guidemay be equipped with a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS), which uses an air bag. Whenever working near any of the SRS components, such as the impact sensors, the air bag module, steering column and instrument panel, disable the SRS, as described in .
  1. Remove the lower steering column cover. Unfasten the ignition switch connector under the instrument panel.
  2. Remove the screws which secure the upper and lower halves of the steering column cover.
  3. Turn the lock cylinder to the ACC position with the ignition key.
  4. Push the lock cylinder stop in with a small, round object (cotter pin, punch, etc.).
On some vehicles, it may be necessary to remove the steering wheel and combination switch first.
  1. Withdraw the lock cylinder from the lock housing while depressing the stop tab.
  2. To remove the ignition switch, unfasten its securing screws and withdraw the switch from the lock housing.
To install:
  1. Align the locking cam with the hole in the ignition switch and insert the switch into the lock housing.
  2. Secure the switch with its screw(s).
  3. Make sure both the lock cylinder and column lock are in the ACC position. Slide the cylinder into the lock housing until the stop tab engages the hole in the lock.
  4. Install the steering column covers.
  5. Connect the ignition switch wiring.
  6. Connect the negative battery cable.

SOURCE: Chevy Cavalier--Socket Burning Back Right Blinker?

it sounds like you are getting corrosion in the socket from water leaking in. Then you end up with high resistance which then causes more current draw whcih then overheats the socket and bulb.
You need to clean the socket very good or replace it if it's on a short wireing harness with a connector. They are @ $20.00.
Then you need to spray some electrical contact cleaner/deoxidizer in the socket to kep it protected. Go to Radio Shack or an auto store to get this.
Finally, look for how the water is getting in there. Sometimes the lens has a gap between the outer lens and lamp body. Seal the entire joint where the lens is attached to the body with a clear silicone sealer. Let us know your outcome. Good luck.

SOURCE: 1993 Toyota Camry V6 Timing Settings

Get a T belt from toyota. It has 3 white lines on it and and arrow mark. 2 lines are solid and one is broken. Put the arrow facing away from the engine. The cam gears have a dot punched into them near a certain tooth. This is where the solid white lines will line up with. The crank gear will have a dot also. It will line up at 90 degrees from the top, towards the front of the car. This is where the broken line will match up with. With the belt installed with all lines on their proper dots and arrow away from the engine, you valve timming is correct.
Of course you need to remove and compress the tensioner also. I assume you know this already since you didn't ask.

Why is the plug wire popping off of toyota 2200 engine continusly

If the plugs and wires were recently changed out, and that one plug wire wasn't securely fastened down, then the spark from the plug would cause it to come off. I would check to make sure that when you put the wire back on, you are feeling or hearing it click into place.

Best place to look is on ebay. Find a reputabe seller, be sure to match the FCC ID number on the back of your current key to ensure compatability. You can probably get one through a local Toyota dealer but will cost much more.

I have a 1993 Toyota Camry 2.2 liter/5 speed manual that I recently purchased. I cannot get airflow from the two center console vents.

1993 was when cars started using a more efficiant air conditioning systerm (I cant remember the name of it now!) nd the first year that came out and they started using it on cars it didnt work as well but it was better for the enviroment. You might just need to replace the whole thing. I have a 1992 Nissan Pathfinder and it had the same problem with all of the vents.

Look under the driver side seat for a black box, with several wires going to it. This is the controller for the security system. Please do NOT unplug the wires. You car will NOT start if you do. Advise if the box is there, and I will provide info to disable the system.
