Squealing sound when I turn on the air conditioner in the car

1999 Toyota Solara: there is a squealing sound from under the hood when I turn on the air conditioner in the car. The lights seem to go dim while it's squealing. After a few minutes, it stops squealing.

I have a 2007 Toyota Yaris S (4-door sedan), and whenever I start the car with the air-conditioner running, there's an awful squeal that comes from under the hood. What is this and how much does it...

The sound you hear is either your belt or your compressor. If the belt is bad it will cost you no more then $50.00. However if your compressor is bad then you are looking at a repair bill of at least $350.00 to $450.00. I hope this helps you out and answers your Question. If you have any other questions please feel free to ask.

How do I remove the front headlight bulb in my 1999 Toyota Solara?

I am no expert, that being said, I went to the auto part store with my manual and got the bulb needed for low beam lighting. Seeing what it looked like helped greatly. HOWEVER, when I went to replace it, it didn't require a new bulb, it just came loose and needed jiggling. My 2003 Solara, the holder/bracket piece that holds the bulb is red, the light pops in that socket. I would have never known this if not for the auto part guy showing me under the hood. Good luck.

1999 toyota solara cigarette lighter and 12v are not working need to know what fuse to replace? is there a fuse box inside there is 2 of them under hood but nothing about car lighter or clock lights

Check your owner's manual if you have one. It will tell you the locations of your fuse boxes.
On my '03 corolla, there is a small enclosed one to the left of my steering wheel, under the dash. Maybe yours is in the same location. hope this helps...
Good luck!
