Question about 1991 Toyota Camry

1991 Toyota Camry tail lights do not work

The tail light fuse blows when I turn the lights switch to parking lights. I have checked all bulbs. I disconnected the wiring connector for tail lights at the trunk (to eliminate wiring at trunk to lights) and fuse still blows. Is there a tail light relay in this car - and where is it? Or is it pretty much have ro be the switch - is there a trick to get to the switch (assuming the wires are not shorted somewhere)?

All other lights, electical stuff works.

Check the relay first, if there is a relay, and that is the problem , then just replace it.

If this is no a relay problem, the most likely is that you have a short in the light switch on the instrument panel, this is particularly common if the switch is placed on a stick on the instrument panel.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

In most electrical wiring and other than the tailights, parklight switch also engages the front parklights as well as the instrumentation/gauges/dashboard lights. A fault in the wiring of any of these would result in the fuse blowing.

Additionally to check would be the green wire along the steering column, dark green in the driver's kick panel (in a clear plug below the fuse box). Wires may have been frayed, pinched or the insulator/rubber coating stripped or burned.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

    Lamp Relays are located in the dash behind the glove box.

    Also, check your fusebox. There maybe a short out in the fusebox, actually the wiring harness for the lights.

Turn signal not working


TAIL LIGHT NOT WORKING

It can be faulty tail light bulb or its issue with tail light control switch or its wiring's are short.

Check the voltage at fuse slot of tail light.Do you receive 12 volt there.If not,then it says tail light switch is not receiving power supply.

The tail lights do not work. The headlights, blinkers, and brake lights work. I checked the fuses and they are all good.

Tail lights work but not brake lights 93 toyota camry


The brake light side of the bulbs is powered by the brake switch and travels thru the turn signal switch.
If the third brake light works, I would guess the problem is in the turn signal switch.

Why taillights will not work when I turn my lights on. However they work when I brake so i know it is not the light bulbs. Also my turn signals do not work even though my hazards do.


Tail lights and brake lights are two seperate things . There are different bulbs for each. When you put your lights on does the front parK lights com on ? Usually the are on the same circuit as the tail lights. Check for fuse first.

1991 Toyota Camry, tail lights and dash lights don't work


Have you looked under the hood? There are more fuses under the hood. Is your dimmer turned down on your dash lights?

91 camry tail lights stop working


Check with a test light to see if you have power at the tail light socket. If you don't, check the fuse. If the fuse is burnt, that's your problem. If it's not, check for power in the wires. Keep testing from back to front unil you find power. If one is broken or shorting out, the most likely place to find it is under the car, near the back where gravel stones can damage them.
