Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

My 1998 dashboard seatbelt indicator lite continues to blink, regardless of status.

Brought it to local Toyota repair "specialist" garage and all they want to do is charge me over $500.00 for a new seatbelt, not repair the one I have already, and not tell me what the problem is.

    This is a '98 Toyota RAV4L While I agree that your comment makes sense, I am looking for potential solutions towards correcting the problem.

Sounds like it is not making the electrical connection to tell the system that it is fastened.

SOURCE: i have a 19991 toyota previa. the oil level light

If the light is flashing there could be problems with the electrical wiring. The easy places to check are at the bottom of the oil reservoir (pass. side under the hood) and at the driver side of the oil pan under the vehicle where the wires plug into the sensor. If this doesn't resolve the problem then it isn't easy, and testing the circuit will have to be done by someone who knows their electrical "stuff." Even the pump motor for the reservoir could be out.

If the Oil Level Sensor light stays on and you have already checked to make sure the oil level read on the dipstick under the driver side seat engine compartment is reading adequate, then you have a sticking oil level sensor float. Replacing the oil level sensor is easy, but extremely expensive ($485 in 2012). You can try to clean the plastic spool that the float slides on, but the problem is usually that it has swollen or expanded (likely from heat in the oil). One could try to sand it down but this would be difficult. I have made a new part out of nylon 6/6 on my lathe and replaced the plastic spool so far with excellent results. I'm considering selling it as an aftermarket part when I see if mine works. It would be a lot less than $485 dollars from Toyota. Or possibly have people send it to me and I'll repair the sensor myself.

Instrument panel lite on 2000 toyota camry indicates backup lites out lites are on but very dim replaced all bulbs and fuses still doesnt work need help


Check for adequate grounding of these sockets!

A good bulb that's dim usually indicates a weak or broken ground path.

You should be able to use a test lead to offer the socket a good ground. If the dash light goes off, problem solved!

AC & Rear wiper switch button indicator lights blink


The procedure for re-setting the HVAC control panel on a 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan follows:
With ignition on but not running
1. turn knob to air vents
2. turn fan knob to ON
3. temperature setting on COLD (2X) {I have dual temp controls}
4. hold top(rear wiper) and bottom (rear wiper with wash) buttons pressing down together until all the buttons cycle through (this will require 1 to 2 minutes of continuous pressing)
I learned this from a very helpful local Dodge service adviser
