Question about 1997 Toyota Avalon

1 Answer

AC isn't working

Car is a 97 Toyota Avalon. The problem is that I started the car this morning and pushed the button for the AC, the AC wasn't turning on and the button wasn't lit. It worked when I got out of class the day previous. Checked the fuse panel under the dash next to the steering wheel and found out none of the areas referring to the fuses said AC or Blower. Went through all the fuses and found one blown referring to the HEATER (10 amp) and replaced it, within seconds of turning on the car and pushing on the AC button (the button light did turn, as did the AC fan did blow air) the fuse blown again. Can you give me an idea of where to start looking or a solution, please...

When a fuse keeps blowing it can only be one of two causes. either the consumer is loading the circuit too much due to a bearing problem or rusty component, or there could be a short circuit to ground. disconnect the blower motor plug connector and turn your a/c on like normal. if it blows the fuse again, replace the blower fan motor. if not, start checking the wiring for any exposed copper that might touch the ground-negative.also inspect all the plug connectors for water damage and corrosion.

SOURCE: My 99 Toyota Avalon horn does not make any sound.

save yourself the hassle , buy yourself a momentary 12volt switch drill a nice clean hole on your driversside dash and re-wire your horn to it, all the screwing around you'll do to figure out why toyota makes cheesy horn contacts you could have your problem fixed..



on one side of the switch you should run a wire that is a 12volt switched +
on the other side I would run another side run a new power wire to your horn
leave your horns stock ground and just replace the HOTLINE ..

you could even go as far as installing a la cou ca racha horn to bring back that 70's Lowrider feel lol

SOURCE: tail light stop working on my 92' toyota camry

In the car trunk, there may be a electrical relay box behind the panel on the left side. It is usually no bigger than 4 inches by 4 inches and yellow in color. This is present in 1987-1991 Toyota Camrys and is generally not in most repair manuals. This yellow electrical relay box may have burnt out. Best place to pick one up at an inexpensive price is at the car wrecking or salvage yard. It is very expensive at the dealer. It is easy to replace with no special tools required. I have done this on my 1991 Camry,

SOURCE: None of my electricals work but car starts

Check your fusible links, you likely blew the ALT 100A fusible link. They are located in the fuse centers behind the battery.

They look like oversized square fuses with windows on top. You can usually visually inspect the damage through the clear plastic top, you can also pop the top off for a better look.

Note that most of them are bolted in from below so verify that before you go pulling on them!

The ALT 100A link controls your charging, headlight, fans. defogger, taillight, illumination, alarm, and keyless entry to name a few, and is the most likely culprit.

SOURCE: Toyota Corolla 2006; Dash lights not working and

I had the same issues. Dash dead, tail lights dead. Fuses were fine, Dimmer relay was fine...So I got to the Tail Light Relay.

Removed the glove box, one screw on the right. Reach up (above the space where the glove box 'area' would be and there are 3 or 4 relays all sitting on top of a junction box. All of them were loose. I pushed them in...and voila! I was getting scared after the obvious.

It sounds like you have a bad actuator. This is attached to the starter and has a solonoid that pushes the starter motor gears into the engine gear. If the solonoid is faulty this may happen. Also check alignment of the same.

Toyota Avalon 1998 A/C Push Button


If when button is pushed in it stays in the AC-light lights up, then you may have another problem like a leak in the system N0/low Freon in system and AC would n't work. But if the switch doesn' t stay push in when its pushed then the switch is BAd and needs to be replace and that will solve the problem. If the switch stays push in with NO AC light on then you may have a bad Ac fuse. Good luck and thanks for using Fix Ya
