I'm thinking its possible you may have a short(wires touching together or on metal) somewhere. But before anything I would check your fuses. Also make sure your battery terminals are tight.

SOURCE: 1997 Toyota Camry LE. During wet weather, water

Most of the problems come when its raining and if its not being driven and water still comes in then its the bonnet rubber and if when its being driven then its due to the rear wheel throughing up water under wheelarch and somewhere theres a crack in the weld or somewhere and it will find its way in..
So if not using it clean it out and when rain stops look inside no rain no leak Have a goodday

SOURCE: Outside handle on 1997 Toyota Avalon will not open door

Since you can get the door open, half the battle is already won. Yes, open the door, pull the interior door panel and take a look around. Watch inside with a flashlight (towards the rear of the door) as you roll the window down to see if you can see what it's snagged on.

SOURCE: Our 2003 Toyota Camry has dome light problems.

Hi
Locate the switch in the door jam and exercise it to try to make it worl.
Spray some lube in it.
Some models have the option to NOT turn on dome light when doors open..
Does it not work for all doors????
That will be in the owners manual. You can find that online
Good luck

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.

1997 toyota avalon will not crank or start horn blowing and lights flashing security light on.


Try unhooking your battery for about ten mins. This might reset your security system. You might also try locking all the doors and then unlocking with the key.

I have a 98 toyota Avalon. The fuse for the dome keeps blowing


I'd look for a direct short, possibly a bare wire that has rubbed insulation off.

Start at the lamp socket first and any switch that might be located at the dome light itself, see if you see anything.

Next I'd check the door switches and then selector switch on the dash.

After that, it's going to be trracing wires, not an easy job.

Door open light switch problem


First check to see if voltage is actually going to the bulb at the "dome" light etc. when you open the door... Then check to see if you have proper ground at dome light.. If not check wiring harness to the switches at door usually located in the door jam area.... remove switcvh and inspect for missing wires that go to the dome light some times the dome light is connected to a switch on the dash check this first....basics always first, fuses and connections then fallow the wire as a last resort..

1997 Toyota corolla - warning noise when lights left on - not working on drivers side!


The ground circuit for the driver side door switch is compromised, or the door switch is bad. Try this: Remove the black rubber cover from the door swich. Using a 10 millimeter wrench or socket, loosen & tighten the switch retention bolt. See if the dome light flickers. If so, the ground on the switch is bad, & just needs cleaned up. If not, remove the switch, and touch the wire behind the switch to the body,or the bolt hole. If the dome light lights, you need a door switch. Your problem is entirely in the door switch/ground/wiring. Hope this helps, and thanks for choosing FixYa.
