Question about Cars & Trucks
The fire kept on going off and coming back on again. I carried out the normal checks first checking the plugs fuse and wiring, they were ok. With aid of an extension lead I then tried plugging the fire into a different wall socket, again this was ok which showed that there was nothing wrong with the original socket. while Carrying out further investigations I noticed that when I was operating one of the rocker switches on the front panel it was shorting out. I have since purchased a new switch. While I have got a reasonable idea on how to go about changing it, I would appreciate any ones input in giving me a more descriptive procedure. Thank you. Derek
Switches in any electrical circuit only do one thing--either allow the 'juice' to flow, or to interupt/stop it. Having never seen the item in question, I need to know how many wires are on this switch. If it is a SPST (single pole, single throw) there will be TWO wires--one will be the feed, the other the carrier to take the juice somewhere else when the switch is thrown (closed.) More complicated switches can have multiple connections (more than two wires) which allows various paths for the juice to flow. It's pretty rare to find a replacement switch that is an exact match for the one that is 'bad', but if you have a Dremel tool, you can always modify the opening to make something else fit. The hardware stores sell a moldable putty that hardens like epoxy, to glue a smaller switch into a 'too big' hole.

SOURCE: No Hi Beam on 93 Camry
The headlamp circuit is rather simple. From the 15 amp RH headlamp fuse, there is a red w/yellow trace that goes to the RH high beam. Out of the 15 amp LH headlamp fuse, the wire going to the LH Hi beam is solid red. Both of these wires should have power when the headlamp relay is energized. The wires from the Hi Beam bulbs going back to the switch should both be red w/black trace. The wire going from the headlamp relay to power the 2 15 amp fuses is white. The headlamp switch applies a ground to illuminate either the Lo Beams or the Hi Beams.

SOURCE: i changed my front 3
The spark plugs should be matched up with the old ones to be sure that are the same as the new spark plugs and that the threads are not too long or too short and if the spark plugs were pre-gapped or if they need to be gapped, and the auto part store should have given you that information along with any spark plug gap because some spark plugs you can not set the gap on or they will be damaged. The spark plug gap should also be printed on the emission label out under the hood. Also, the other three spark plugs and wires should be changed to complete the ignition tune-up.
The spark plug gap should be the same amount between all of the spark plugs, and the farther apart that the gap is between the spark plugs the rougher the engine will run and idle, and the closer that you get to the same spark plug gap between the spark plugs the smoother the engine will run and idle.
It is also very important that the spark plugs be connected to the correct terminals on the coil pack or the engine will have a severe mis-fire and it will set a mis-fire DTC (Data Trouble Code) and cause the check engine light to come on.
Here is a firing order diagram to help assist you and let me know if need help with this diagram or if you require any further assistance.
