Question about 1999 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

I have 1999 Toyota Camry. The tun signals and hazzard flasher do not operate. The bulbs and fuses are good. The front lights light up but, do not flash, the back lights do not light up. The under dash flasher clicks when the turn signal lever is activated.

    What is my best approach to tracing the wiring? There are a lot of harnesses and wires that are not easily accessable.

    I took my 1999 Camry to a mechanic and the problem was the FLASHER. This fix is not the one you suggested.

I would trace the wires and see if there is a break in the wires someplace. If the under dash flasher clicks whent he turn signal is activated, I think that the circuit is good up to there.

    Indeed, there are quite a few wires with different colors.

    Perhaps, if it is too hard to do with a test light (self powered or not self powered) the safest thing to do is to take the vehicle to an 'auto electric' shop that specializes in this field.

    They may be able to diagnose the problem within an hour or so.

    If you want to do it yourself, you can try, but sometimes it can be frustrating because of the number of wires that you have to sift through to get to a solution.

    And, there's always the risk of shorting something out that you don't want to.

    Part of working on auto electric problems is getting to the right wire without damaging other systems of the vehicle.

    So, that's why I would recommend an 'auto electric' shop for this problem, since fixing this type of problem is more advanced.

    If it were just a flasher, I would say that you could change that yourself.

    I'll make a mental note of this solution.



    Sometimes the flasher contacts are bad even though you hear it click, it doesn't make full contact.



    Thanks for getting back to me on this.

Problem with directional signal on my 97 Camry


Bad ground. You will need a diagram to figure out where the lights ground, but look around the radiator core support and see if any ground wires are loose, or corroded. Even if they look good, loosen and tighten the wires while the flashers are on.

Signal lights, fuse box and signal light relay in 2001 Volkswagen


The bulbs on these cars can be delicate. Some get replaced every year or so-( headlights, tail and brake) and some I've never touched in 8 years (my front turn signals and marker lights)

The fast blinking occurance is normal when a turn signal bulb goes out.

The rear lights are common to blow, I keep spares in the glovebox.

Make sure you were given the correct bulb, check to see that it works and isn't defective. Also there is an empty spot in the rear bulb holder- make sure you didn't mistakenly pop a bulb in there cause' it won't work.

The front right signal light is in the right headlight housing. Open the hood and on the back of the housing there are two plastic caps. One is curved and one is rectangular- you want to take off the rectangular one.

Open the drivers door and on the side of the dash there's a cover. This is the main fuse block. Use a coin or carefully with a screwdriver pry it open. To check a fuse pull it out, noting exactly where it came from, and visually inspect it to see if it is blown.

Fuse # 2- turn signal system
Fuse #4- License plate lights
Fuse #7- back up lights
Fuse #13- brake lights
Fuse #22- parking and side marker lights, right
Fuse #23- parking and side marker lights, left

The turn signal flasher is integrated into the hazzard button in the center of the dash. If all else is good and you suspect the flasher is bad, which is a good possibility, call a VW dealer and have them run your VIN# to check for recalls. The hazzard switch for some cars around your year had a recall on em'.

Running lights not working and left side flasher does not work most of the time but works when hazzard lights are on


running lite issue could be a fuse problem. address your owners manual for the correct fuse location and check it first. the signal problem could be the bulb either front or rear. turn the signal on and physically look at each one. this should help determine which one.

Turn signals dont work bulbs/fuses are good.


check to see if the emergency flashers work if they do its its either a wiring problem, bulb, or socket the bulb fits in. if it does not work than the flasher is the problem. it is located underdash on driver side in the kick panel( to left of the brake pedal) it is a blue or grey sguare relay looking plug. if it is factory flasher it will say flasher with the part # on it. it should also say toyota on it. good luck

2000 toyota camry turn signals not working. Fuses check out and bulbs good.


Hi, i recommend testing the switch and flasher module. i will post the testing procedures for both devices. replace the device that is faulty.

To test turn signal switches, use a 12-volt test light to probe for voltage into and out of the switch. The ignition switch must be in the RUN position for the circuit to operate. If voltage is present on the input side of the switch but not on the output side, the switch is faulty.

FLASHER TEST PROCEDURE---
  • A test light can be used to determine which flasher is used for the turn signals and which is used for the hazard warning light.
  • An easier way is to turn on both the directionals and the hazards. This activates both flasher units.
  • By removing one of the flashers, the affected circuit no longer flashes.
  • Therefore, that flash unit controls that particular circuit.
  • If the turn signals fail to operate and the fuse is good, the flasher has probably failed.
  • Occasionally, the flasher does not flash as fast as it once did, or it flashes faster. This is also cause for replacement.
  • If it flashes too slowly or not at all, check for a burned-out bulb first.
the flasher is located in the Front seating area, driver side, driver side of steering column, mounted in corner behind instrument panel

If the turn signals operate properly in one direction but do not flash in the other, the problem is not in the flasher unit. A burned-out lamp filament will not cause enough current to flow to heat the bimetallic strip sufficiently to cause it to open. Thus the lights do not flash. Locate the faulty bulb and replace it.

Both front and rear turn signals stopped working


Your turn signal flasher needs to be replaced (the hazard flasher is separate unit). Your owners manual should have the location of the turn signal flasher (usually on the fuse block under the dash).
