Trouble shooting circuits is about eliminating points of failure until you isolate the problem. Is the fuse blowing? If so you need to disconnect everything and then connect them back one at a time until you find the fault, or disconnect them one at time until you find the problem. I would start at the stereo, disconnect and isolate the wires they typically fail or are wired improperly when oem replacements are installed. If the fuse is not blowing I would trace the voltage from the fuse block forward into the circuit, if there is no power getting to the fuse it might be something ahead of the fuse you are working on. Bossibly a bad connection, but sometimes its another feeder fuse or connection.

Turn Signal/ High Beam Lights/ Driver Window/ Horn suddenly not working! Help!


These are just ideas, but In my simple attempt....start with checking, or have someone check every fuse in the fuse box. Another thought is that the turn signal indicator arm that controls blinkers, high beams has finally gave out. And when it did, it might have shorted out the horn. Being a 1993, it has probably seen some usage. Does the cigarette lighter work?? Also check the fuse in the fuse box that controls the horn, because in some of my experiences, the cigarette lighter and the horn are sometimes on the same fuse.

Horn cigarette lighter use same fuse replaced fuse but neither work


Did you also check the BATT1 fuse in the engine compartment fuse relay center? You should have 12 volts through the BATT 1 fuse, the red wire connected to one end of the CIG FUSE, and the orange wire from the other end of that fuse to the cigarette lighter. If you lose 12 volts along that path, check for broken or burned wires.

The horn suddenly started honking on its own. Then one night while we were gone, it bonkers non stop for 10 minutes. The next day when we turned the car on the horn would not work, the cigarette lighter...


You probably have a short in the horn switch circuit. At some point, the fuse in the lighter/horn circuit blew out. Replacing the fuse is the easy part; it's probably in the glove compartment or under the dash near the glove compartment. The hard part comes first - where is that short circuit? I'd look closely at the wiring coming out of the steering column under the dash for wires with cut or broken insulation. Also, check the wiring to the fuse box that has the horn relay inside (usually under the hood) - maybe a rodent has been chewing on the wires.

In the worst case, the problem is inside the steering column with an airbag waiting to go off like a bomb if you make a mistake while working on it.

1995 camry wagon cigarette lighter not working


start with a test light and check for power at the center of the cigarette lighter socket. If power is good, then check for ground at side of lighter socket.
If no power, run wire from power wire of lighter to power wire of stereo, thus tapping the power directly and bothering to trace out where the open int he circuit may be.
