SOURCE: ignition switch fuse terminal is blowing red 40 amp fuse when i try to replace it

A fuse that is consistently blowing is telling you that there is a short in that system. Don't attempt to bridge it or use a larger amp fuse or you will have a major problem. You will need to start tracing wiring to destinations to find the short. If while moving harnesses around problem ceases to exist, look at nearby items where you are working and try to locate what was grounding. Sometimes people will stop if short disappears, leaving open the possibility of it happening again.
If you are not comfortable working with wiring, then leave it to professionals who do this every day. It's not really difficult but requires patience and a good bit of knowledge to do this right!

SOURCE: 93 corolla 1.8 No start Blown ignition fuse

I had a prolem like this one time a while back. what i did was got the wiring diagram and checked everything that was running through that 30 amp fuse. on the one i was working on it ended up being an injector wire pinched under the valve cover and it didnt short out till the car was driven til it warmed up and expanded after the valve cover gasket was changed. hope this helps!

I am chasing the exact same problem. I have put it down to no power feed past dome fuse no8 the light gauge wire, blue/yellow trace is under stress behind the heater box and can break internally. I think mine is broken between fuse 8 and inside the car, as there is no continuity between the two points on my vehicle, and there is on my brothers car, same car

SOURCE: Daytime Running Lights Inoperative 2002 Toyota Camry

[Information] For a 2002 Toyota Camry, the Daytime Running Lights (DRL) operate utilizing the High Beams (inner Lamps closer to the center of the vehicle front) at a reduced power.

[The troubleshooting process:] Review the Owner's Manual and ensure the test configuration matches the following criteria:
1. According to the 2002 Toyota Camry Owner's Manual (Check your Owners Manual):
"The DRL system will make your headlights come on at a reduced brightness when:
The light switch s in the "DRL" position.
The ignition is on with the engine running.
The headlight switch is off.
The parking brake is released."


2. Set the Test Conditions according to Step 1 above.

3. Check the headlight bulbs to ensure they are not burned out. If one burns out, there is a fair chance that the other would have burned out at the same time. Replace as necessary. In this case, if the high beams operate, the DRLs should also operate.
4. Test the system, ensuring the step 1 conditions are set. (Engine running, Multi-function Switch on Turn Signals in "DRL" position, headlight switch off (repeating what the manual says -- it should be obvious that in the "DRL" position, the headlight switch should be off / do not have the switch positioned to "High Beam"), and the Parking Brake "off").
5. If DRL lights do not work, check the engine compartment Fuse and Relay Box. there is a 5 Amp DRL fuse -- replace it with the spare. Test (step 4).
6. If it does not work, swap around or replace relays -- there are three (3). Any one of them could be bad (stuck or burned out). Test (step 4).
7. Other less likely possible issues could be that the Multi-function Switch is broken or a connection / wire is broken. [Beyond the scope of this process.]


My problem was that the test configuration did not have the engine running and parking brake off - Step 1. Problem solved with much thought, repetitive tests on the vehicle and going back to the basics -- what does the Owner's Manual say and where are the applicable fuses and relays located?

I don't have a wiring diagram but as I recall it has a fuse for each headlight 10amp, a headlight relay and it has to have a good high low beam switch to function as well as a good headlight switch. Good luck

Relay for 01toyota 4runner. Fuse 40a am 1what does it control


With that much juice it can only be a few things, starter relay, headlight/highbeams, etc. Your users manual should contain a diagram of the fuse boxes with labels denoting which fuse/relay is for what. If you don't have a user's manual, contact Toyota for your make and model.

My hilux won't start keeps blowing the ignition fuse when turning the key on


that is a dead short, the fuse saved you the ensuing fire.
there are 2 fuses or more... with that name..
old cars love to short things, no lie.
the fsm is the best thing to have, and alldata.com , 2nd.
the older that car the more true that is... and your car is 10x that.
a 1991
is the fuse in the cab BOX? NOT ENGINE BAY?
THE CAB FUSE , HAS these (USA cars, other are DIFFERENT)
no country stated (sigh)
ignition sw AM1
ignition sw AM2
ignitor 1
ignition coil (1 for 4cy, and 1 for v6 engine, unsaid)
on one car there is a IGN fuse 7.5 amps
and runs the ECU and main relay.
there are 3 engines, and drawing for all 3.

get the fsm and use that or login to alldata.com and hope
it covers your engine. (unstated)

My power window and door locks fuse keeps blowing.


When the fuse blows figure out what you are doing, what switch is being pressed, then remove the needed panels to access the wiring to the switch and motor it operates, then you will find the damaged wiring and repair the short, no quick fix, just hard grunt work.

Just got a 99 toyota 4runner at a steal of a price. I can't get the truck to crank over, unless I am using a starter jumper, meaning I jump it from the battery with a remote start switch. New to this...


it may be that the clutch start switch positive wire is shorted out to a ground, try to bypass the switch and see if the fuse stops blowing, if it does get an ohm meter and check each wire to ground, only the white black wire is grounded.

92 Toyota pickup, was blowing efi fuse now its not but when I turn the key it doesn't do anything


A bad short blowing the fuse. Could be in the wiring for that circuit, or bad part, component (like the computer, sometimes a shorted injector).
Check if the fuse still has power to it. Use a test light to check for power at the fuse. If no power, probably blew a fusible link or maxi fuse that is the feed for that fuse block.
Turn key to on-do the warning lights and dash gauges come on? If not, check that power is still getting to the ignition switch. I think there are fuses (AM1 &2?) for the ignition switch, not fusible links.
Shorts in the wiring can be difficult to find, may be buried deep in a wiring harness, one needs to check continuity of wiring to locate wiring shorts, looking for high resistance in a section of wire-you may need a shop to diagnose. If you have a wiring diagram available, could start checking wiring and parts in that circuit.
If you want to get creative, here is how an auto electrician can hunt for shorts: use some jumper wires and hook up a circuit breaker of same rating as the efi fuse in that fuse slot. Now when testing you will not be constantly blowing the fuse-circuit breaker will reset every time. Unhook parts in the circuit one at a time, turn key on so power is going through the circuit, whatever part is unplugged that breaker does not trip, that is the problem-the wiring to it or the part itself. Also do a wiggle test of the wiring: key on, move different parts of the wiring and harness, if you cause the short tripping the breaker (or blowing the fuse if you just keep adding a new fuse each time) then you have found the short.
Here's a heads up: anytime you want to pull the connectors off of the computer, make sure key is off, remove negative battery terminal, pull connectors off the computer, reattach the negative battery terminal. With connectors off examine connector pins for any corrosion or bent pins.
Good luck, get power back to the ignition switch if it is lost, then start looking for what is blowing the efi fuse.

The AM2 fuse under hood keep blowing out every time i turn the ignition key switch to on position


I would disconnect the noise filter located by the ignition coil/ignitor, have seen them short out and cause the AM2 fuse to blow. Also Disconnect coil, dist and see if short goes away

I havea1991 toyota corolla stationwagon that while i disconected the botom ignition harness that is located on the bottom of the key ignition , accidentally grounded the blue whire that has a red stripe ,...


The BLUE/RED wire from your ignition switch provides power to your cigarette lighter and your radio via the 15 Amp "CIG" fuse and the 7.5 Amp "RADIO" fuse in the fuse block under the left end of the dash in the kick panel.

However, this wire will not have any power with the ignition switch removed and therefore would not have been able to blow any fuses with the switch removed. The two fuses that the BLUE/RED wire go to will also not cause your engine to not start.

If your radio does not work and your engine does not start, you probably accidently grounded the WHITE wire. This is one of the TWO power wires going INTO the ignition switch. The other power wire is the BLACK/RED.
The WHITE wire gets power from the 40 Amp "AM1" fuse and the BLACK/RED wire gets power from the 30 Amp "AM2" fuse. Both of these fuses are located in the F.1 fusable link box in the engine compartment at the battery.

I have no power going to my ignition. I have 12.87 volts in the battery, lights work, all fuses are good. Everything that goes through the ignition doesn't work, i.e. starter, radio, door locks, windows,...


See if you have 12 volts to the starter if you do then check the fuse on the battery that Toyota uses for the ignition switch if I remember correctly there are two huge fuses and they can blow on occasion, also pull the fuse apart on the battery cable positive side and clean all parts with sand paper and put it back together and try starting it. If that does not work then check the fuses and relays in the relay box, also be sure the negative side post is clean too. If you still don't get power to the switch then you may have a bad switch or a loose wire on the starter solenoid
