The motors could be shot. See if you can manually turn the screw mechanism that moves the lights up and down (it's easy to get to at the back of the motor). If you can move the lights up and down manually with ease, I would bet the motor is bad. Check fuses and the voltage going to the motor first, of course, but it's probably the motor. Unfortunately they are expensive to replace.

Cruise control in my 2003 mr2 spyder suddenly went out

check the fuse for the cruise control from the driver side located on the left side of the dashborad. Make sure the fuse is not blown out.
If it bad, change it out but make sure it is the same rated fuse.

Good luck

Having battery drain on Toyota MR2 when the car is left standing for 3 days or more. Have disconnected car alarm.

Pull the positive cable off battery. Put a test light between the battery post and the positive cable. If there is a light you know it is draining the battery. Now pull fuses one at a time until the light goes out then you will know where the problem is. To save time make sure you glove compartment light is going off and check you trunk light.

Toyota mr2 roadster 2001 engine light on code po141 oxygen sens

bank 1 will be whichever side cylinder 1 of your engine is and bank 2 will be the opposite side. It's named bank 1 and bank 2 so that no matter how the engine is laid out, bank 1 is always on the same side as cylinder 1. I cannot say whether the right hand or the left hand one will be bank 1 as I do not know where your cylinder 1 is. The garage should know

1986 toyota mr2 interior lights is off

Before you start looking a the fuse box, make sure of 2 things: do you have power and a good ground at the light housing. Then, make sure that the door switches are grounded good, and are actually working. If no power, get back to me and I will get you to the fuse box, altho I doubt that the fuse box is the root cause.

Sears installed battery with terms. switched...fried my fuse box

If they hooked the battery up backwards, they fried a whole lot more than the fuse box. Probably a couple of fusible links, coulda taken out the computer and a ton of other parts, depending on how fast the fuses blew. Fuses are designed to stop a current SURGE from damaging anything, but NOT current going the wrong way. While they will still blow, the damage may have already been done. 6v53 is right. Make Sears pay!!!

I have a 1991 Toyota MR2 that will not start.

The EFI fuse is for fuel components, and for powering up the ecu. There is a lot on that circuitry. The 15 amp fuse, is also the power for the EFI relay. If this relay is without the power from that fuse, you probably won't have the fuel pump working, and the ecu won't be fully powered up.
Check the fuse again to see if it blew out again. If it did, you will have to trace the circuits for a short. Also, the EFI fuse gets power from the 40 amp AM2 fuse, so if the EFI fuse has power to it, the AM2 fuse is okay.
If I were you, I would test and check all fuses in all fuse/relay boxes under the hood. checking fuses is easy with a cheap test light. With the key in ON, every fuse on the car has power to it. So you clip tester light to ground (use neg. batt'y post), and then use test light probe into the little slot on the top end of a fuse. You do not have to take fuse out to visually inspect.
On the top end of all fuses are 2 little slots (one at each end of fuse) that is open to the metal strip inside. So you turn key to ON, then probe one end of the fuse. The test light should light up. Even a blown fuse will light up tester on one end of the fuse. Now to test the fuse itself, use the probe and touch into both ends of the fuse. A good fuse will light the tester on both ends of the fuse. A blown fuse will only light up one end of the fuse-the metal strip has blown so no power on both ends of the fuse, SEE?
And by using the test light, you also verify that power is getting to
the fuse. It is easy, and you are on the way to becoming an automotive electrician. Next, you need to buy and use a multi-meter, for automotive uses buy a digital volt-ohm meter (DVOM), which is what most multi-meters really are. And you don't have to buy an expensive one. I have a Sears Craftsman DVOM, about 20 years old, and it only cost like $30.

How do you change the brake lights on a rev1 mark 2 mr2 turbo import?

If the Rear Lights are the bulbs just like the ones in my 91. There should be 3 screws holding the light housings onto the body. You will need a small prybar (preferrably plastic to limit damage), or a Flathead screwdriver.
Open your trunk lid and unscrew the phillips screw that holds the tab of the light on.
The side (outermost) cover should pop off, using from the farthest aft (back) lip, it will require some force, after that is off, it should reveal two smallish phillips screws holding the rest of the housing on.
Once those are removed, the Light housing just pulls off (mild force required, held in by spring type clips)
Then its just finding the right plug (screw and keyway type) to pull off, revealing the bulb itself.
