You need a tachometer compatible with the Toyota Camry's ignition system. Start up the Camry's engine and let it reach normal operating temperature. Connect the tachometer tester probe to terminal IG of the Data Link Connector 1. Connect terminals TE1 and E1 of the DLC1 with a jumper connector. Inspect the tachometer's timing. It should be between 8 and 12 degrees Before Top Dead Center. Set the timing as necessary. Tighten the hold-down bolt and make sure the ignition timing advances. Ignition Coils Disconnect the negative terminal from the Camry's battery. Remove the two nuts and clips on top of the cylinder head cover, then remove the cover. Disconnect the four ignition coil connectors and the bolts retaining the coils. You can now remove the coils. Replace the coils as needed. Connect the bolts and coil connections and replace the cylinder head cover.

Where is the starter relay on a 1991 camry new starter no start condition 12v at trigger wire at starter


The starter relay is on the starter housing and is part of the solenoid. If you have 12v on the trigger wire with it connected to the starter and the ignition switch at START, then the problem is a bad ground connection either at the starter or battery. If you have 12v only with the wire disconnected and ignition switch at START, then you ignition switch is bad.

You need to have the ignition switch replaced. You can do it yourself, but you would need a manual to tell you how to take the steering column apart.
