Do you know which circuit has the suspected short?
if not, that is first step!
Check fuses for any blown fuses, that may be the circuit?
with everything off, you want to check for current drain at each circuit, once you locate a circuit that has a large current draw, that is the circuit with a short. Because it all should be off - no current drain should be evident, only a couple circuits will have some current draw - clock radio, on board computer, etc.

4x4 4.0l V6. What are the probable causes of DTCs P0112, P0117, P0122, P0513, P0556, and P0565?


code p 0112 refers to intake air temp (IAT) sensor --circuit malfunction===cause --wiring short to graound--wiring short to positive --IAT sensor ---ECM
code p 0117 refers to engine coolant temp (ECT) sensor--circuit malfunction=== causes --coolant thermostat---wiring short to ground--wiring short to positive ---ECT sensor
code p 0122 refers to throttle position (TP) sensor A/ accelerator pedal position (APP) sensor A low input === causes wiring short to ground--TP/APP sensor --ECM
There are 3 responses to p 0122 and all refer to TP switch /sensor plus wiring open /short to ground/ short to positive
code p 0513 refers to incorrect immobilizer key=== causes immobilizer system
code p 0556 refers to brake booster pressure sensor---circuit range / performance=== causes --wiring---poor connection---brake booster pressure sensor---ECM
code p 0565 refers to cruise control master switch. off signal --malfunction === causes wiring---cruise control master switch--ECM
by reading all the codes you will see that common causes are wiring problems and ECM so may be a quick check would be to replace the ECM with a known working unit first and work back from there

I have a 1994 4runner and it keeps blowing fuse for gauges when I put it in reverse


Sounds like a wire being shorted out in the shift console. I can't remember how to take out the console, but it's usually as simple as a few screws in strategic places (including under or behind ashtrays, cup holders, and storage areas).

I have a 1992 Toyota 4 runner and it keeps blowing the break light fuse and the turn signal fuse. I have checked all the basic things and I'm at a lose as to what it could be. Any suggestions?


start by making sure all bulbs are good for all lights if one is shorted that can cause your problem, the other are any of the bulb sockets corroded or green,chaffed wires,could water be a problem ?

Wires at inertia switch are getting hot and the switch has melted, jumped wires and they are getting extremly hot


Hi, odds are you have a bad fuel pump or a short in the wire to the pump. If you have dual tanks, the short may be in the tank selector switch. Try disconnecting the connector at the pump to see if the short is in the pump or the wire. If the wires at the inertia switch still get hot, the short is in the wire. If not, replace the pump.
