I. Want to know what color of wire goes in the alternator for 1996 rav4

Hi there:
It might be different on a RAV4, but here's a description of that connector from a 2.0L engine:

"S" (Pin 3, white wire) - Sense line. It will eventually make its way back to the battery through several fuses. If this line is bad (corrosion, broken wire, blown ALT-S fuse), the alternator will overcharge, trying to compensate since it is not sensing enough voltage. Disconnect the battery, and check for continuity of this pin to the positive battery terminal and the alternator terminal. Both should be very close to 0 ohms.

"IG" (Pin 2, red-blue wire) - Supplies power for the regulator from the Gauge fuse. Should be 0V when the car is shut off, 13-15V when turned on.

"L" (Pin 1, yellow wire) - Goes to the charge warning light.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

How do you replace the ignition cylinder on a 1997 toyota 4 runner

Here's what you need:
1) Drill
2) 5/32′ cobalt drill bit (use cobalt, it's for drilling hard metals and is necessary)
3) 10mm socket wrench
Here's what you do:
1) Remove panel underneath steering column (4 X 10mm bolts)
2) Remove plastic shield covering ignition (should just snap out)
3) On the underside of the ignition assembly, you'll see a small hole (~1/4′) about 2 inches back from where the key goes. Using the 5/32′ drill bit, drill up into the hole, trying to center the drill bit on the pin which is inside the hole. You can normally push this retaining pin in if the ignition is turned to the first position and slide the cylinder out.
4) When the pin is drilled out completely, the lock cylinder should be easy to pop out with a small flat head screwdriver pried just underneath where the key goes on the front of the ignition.
5) The new cylinder should slide right in (with the key inserted and turned to the first position - ACC)
Heres what it cost:
1) Ignition lock cylinder assembly from Toyota dealer ~ $115
2) 5/32′ cobalt drill bit ~$4
