I ran a small tire pump from the ciarette lighter, it pumped some then stopped.Now the cig lighter doesnt work. My neighbor offered to help . his car did the same thing. I checked the fuse under the dash...


Try replacing the fuse with another of the same size eg 10amp. While you are under there check other fuses. The label is not always correct on Australian Toyotas, could be the same in your country.
If the fuse is blown, there is a short in the pump. Throw it away as it has blown the fuses in both vehicles. (yours and the neighbors)
Next time you are at a spare parts supplier buy yourself a cheap (usually under $10.00) LED computer safe test light. These are easy to use. It has a earth lead with a clip on the end and a probe on the other end that you touch to the fuse and see if it lights up the LED bulb.
First you connect the earth lead to a good earth, the ignition key while in the ignition is usually a good earth or a bolt that goes into the vehciles body. (You need a good earth)
Then you just touch the probe end to one side of the fuse and see if it lights up. If not you touch the other end of the same fuse and it should light up.
If only one end is lighting up the testers bulb the fuse is broken. (Yes it can look fine but be still broken)
If both ends don't light up move the earth lead to a bolt on the vehicle and recheck also check other fuses to make sure your have a good earth.
Tip, Some fuses only work with the ignition turned on while other work all the time.
You can also check the cig lighter with the test light. after checking the fuse is Ok
Again find a good earth bolt and attach the earth lead and place probe end into centre of empty cig lighter and it should light up the bulb. Becareful to to touch the side at the same time as this is the earth for the cig lighter.

Push on the horn and I here a ckicking under the glove box but the horn does not work


The clicking is the coil side of the horn relay....That pulls in the contact which carries the heavier currant needed for the horn operation.
To work on this fault you'll need an electrical test meter or light....
  • Locate the actual relay by having someone press the horn and NOT hold it down
  • The clicking will lead you to its position.
  • Unhook it from its bracket and with the meter check that the switching side of the relay is closing when the horn is pressed.
  • If not replace the relay.
  • If power is going across the switching side go to the connection on the horn at the front of the vehicle and check the power output there
  • If you have power there, check to make sure the earth contact to the body is intact.
  • The earth contact is usually through the horn button via a contactor on the steering wheel assembly.
  • I would think that that is fine as the relay is operating.
  • if all power is coming from the relay and the horn is grounded correctly, replace the actual horn.
Have a good honk best regards Johngee10

Horn, wipers and indicator lights all not working after gearbox change


hi from uk the fact you mention g/box has been changed would suggest that your probs with electrics would point to either an earth cable from battery to the body/chassis has not been refitted after g/box removal/refit or the lead that provides power for electrics which connects to the starter solenoid on the same connection as the positive + lead from battery is either loose or not connected ? with horn/wipers /lights not working these components get their earth from the cars body/chassis however is it possible that starter lead was disconnected b4 disconnecting the battery earth lead ??? thn accident of shorting to earth(spark ) which would blow the fuses for these components ? check em out ?

If u turn the key over it wont do anything


The main fuse may have blown, or other fuses may have blown - check that they are all ok

Do the electrics work? (do the oil and ignition lights come on when you turn the ignition on?)

The connectors to the Starter Motor may not be secure, or there may be a break in the wiring. Are the connections to the Starter Motor all present. Are they wired up correctly.

Check the earthing points and earth cables, especially those between the engine and the bodywork. A poor or broken earth connector or wire can lead to the problem you outlined (there may be an earth cable connector retained under one of the bolts that secures the Starter Motor in place.

Horn doesn't work in my Mitsubishi Mighty Max Pickup


First could you do a couple of test to confirm what is actualy wrong?You will need to buy a test light/probe to confirm power to the horn etc,the tester is cheap and a good addition to any self diagnosis you do on the vehicle.Try running a wire from the horn positive terminal directly to the positive side of the battery to make sure the horn actualy works.Also make sure it is securely bolted to the car,not loose as its bolted down tight to give the horn the earth it needs to work.If horn doesnt work when directly connected to battery you will need to replace it and problem solved but if it does work then you will have to check the power to the horn button cant remember exactly but I think its the centre of the steering wheel.Make sure the wire coming through the centre has power.Let me know how you go and if problem still exists let me know.Horn is usualy located at the front of the vehicle either behind grill or in the engine bay near to the headlights.good luck.

No brake lights or horn both on samefuse but fuses ok


There may be a wire off the horn but this is no problem as they are only push on clips so if you locate the horn and check there are no wires off, if there is this should be your problem i would also advize just changing the fuse anyway making sure it is the right amp.
