All lights on the dashboard are on including battery engine
When I started my 1991 Toyota MR2 all the lights on the dashboard were on. I looked by the engine and I saw that a cable near the engine was burned, I think because there was some oil and of the heat of the engine it burned. But now when I started my MR2 all the dashboard lights are on, I replaced the burned cable but it is the same, can I drive the car or what can I do?

Re: all lights on the dashboard are on including battery...
REPLACE BATTERY GROUND!!! They have caught on fire before due to old ground wires. Get an ebay ground wire kit and connect them in random places in engine compartment. I have 3 on the battery. Its better to be redundant then on fire!

On the second generation MR2 and MR2 Turbo (1991 through 1995 USA, and 1991 through 1999 for the rest of the world), it is on the FRONT side of the engine, between the engine and the rear firewall of the cabin area. It is the right side of the car.
trouble with this is. it can be the electrical part of the ignition switch needing changed..as has failed or beak in the wiring at the solenoid on top of the starter. is sticking .get someone to turn your key at the same time you hit the top of your solenoid .if it start that way .change the starter.
You\'ra asking about a 22 year old vehicle. I wouldn\'t take that for free & certainly not pay for it. Get something newer. Any vehicle over 12 to 14 years old, isn\'t even worth working on, unless you have decades of experience & do all your own work. If you know nothing about cars, you need something fairly new.
Before you start looking a the fuse box, make sure of 2 things: do you have power and a good ground at the light housing. Then, make sure that the door switches are grounded good, and are actually working. If no power, get back to me and I will get you to the fuse box, altho I doubt that the fuse box is the root cause.
on the carte pan,there will be oi leaks?ther ewill be problem with level sensor,or,seen the age,with the connecting wiring full wiht oil and dirt?
