Question about 1992 Toyota Corolla

Intermittent electrical problem 1992 toyota trueno/levin AE101

Last night as I was driving my car home, I noticed the overheating/O2 sensor light came on, then I noticed that the check_tail_light and battery lights had also come on and started the swear to myself, As I pulled over to check they all went out... confused I took off again and hey presto they came back on again... I did this several time until i isolated that they were comeing on at about 1550 rpm in first and would go out at the same revs. I then thought screw can't be bothered with this then ignored them and carried on driving home - but after about 10k's the battery voltage indicator started to creep up and I had to turn on all my peripheral electronics to try and keep it under 18V...
This is my first car and having owned and worked on motorbike most of my life I am assuming that they are similar, I going to get it load tested this afternoon but and other advice would be hugely appreciated
also - where would I find the regulator/rectifier on a car and do they even have one??

Thanks Heaps

I have a toyota trueno 1992 and i want to put a new stereo in it

Go to the auto parts store and get a wire adaptor made for a 1992 trueno. It will plug into your factory harness. The wire colors are prematched to your sony and other aftermarket stereos. Just match the wire colors, splice with connectors making sure no wires are exposed. (A little electrical tape for good measure around splices helps). Then it just plugs in. If your factory stereo has mounts that screw onto the radio, unscrew them and attach them to the sony. Remove sleeve from radio and discard. The screw holes are already on the sony.

2001 Montero Sport up stream oxygen sensor has failed. My check engine light came on and tried to drive vehicle at night and my lights went dim and the truck quit.

This has nothing to do with you O2 sensor. You have more than one problem. An O2 sensor will not cause what you just described. It will cause a check engine light but not the dimming of lights and a stalling issue. Check your charging sytem ( battery and alternator )

Tail lights dont go on

Most likely a fuse or circuit breaker. Check your fuse box for a blown fuse. I assume your brake lights still work. Yeah, that's scary alright. You were lucky not to get a ticket.
