SOURCE: bulbs not working on a/c and recirculation buttons

The switches have to be removed and the bulbs are on the back of the switch. they look like a grey plastic screw. the bad news is that they are a dealer only item.

Hi, my car, a toyota caldina, has three buttons on the dashboard that i don't understand. One button has a sign of a windscreen with a wiper and current going through it with an ON light indicator. Another...


on a 1997-2002 caldina G, GT, GTT..

One is the rear demister (front demister is in the center console with the heater). But it could also be the windscreen cleaner pump, if you mean on the stalk. (up, front window, down, reap window).

One is the fog lamps if fitted

The last is an inverter buit into the car so you can run 100Volt domestic devices (like laptops/shavers and stuff). I think the japanese have 100 volt domestic power. You'll find the *** power socket on the back of the centre console under a little hatch, easiest to see from the back seat. Mostly you want it turned off.

Battery draining when rear defrost is turned on what casing this


You do not say what brand and model vehicle you have.

The rear window demisters drain a lot of power and are usually programmed to switch off automatically after about 15 or 20 minutes of use. They should also cut out fully when the vehicle's ignition is turned off and of course when you manually switch them off.

1. When you are driving and running a host of electrical units simultaneously in winter there is maximum power drainage and any shortfall in power from the alternator has to be drawn from the battery. This will be a problem if you have a weak battery that is not holding it's charge well or if the battery is not fully charged once it has been nearly or fully drained. It will also be a problem if the alternator is not producing it's optimum power while the vehicle is running.

Batteries do not respond well to being drained frequently and when they are they should always be fully charged again each time with a battery charger at the earliest opportunity. (Running them down and then expecting the vehicle's alternator to do all the battery recharging is not a sound practice).

2. It is possible the rear demister is not shutting down automatically after a period of operation as it is likely to be programmed to do in your vehicle. This is easily checked. If it is not shutting down, and the battery is needed to supplement the vehicles power supply when driving, then the battery can be run down in time.

3. If the rear demister is left active but not shutting down when your ignition is turned off your battery will quickly drain.
You should check that power to the rear demister is off once the ignition is switched off (and when you switch the demister off manually). This is unlikely to be a problem but in the unlikely event that you find it is still operating then you can pull the fuse dedicated to the rear demister.

I hope this helps.

Aircon/heater/rear window demister not working.


Youes probably begot a bad connection inside the fuse block. You can try cleaning fuse contacts with a really small nail file or something to re-establish contact.

My demister in rear windscreen not working


Do you have rear window tinting?( the plastic sheet type ) If so,check that the edges over the demister tapes have not curled up pulling the tapes off the window and diconnecting them. If they need repair, a small bottle of tape repair solution should be available from a spare parts retailer.
