I am having the same problem and cannot locate the fuse box, I already removed the coin drawer too. I was unable to see the diagram that you sent the other person with the same problem. Is there any way that you could send it to me a little bigger so that I can find my fuse box? Please help!! Thanks in advance.

First you'll need to look under the left side dash, below the coin holder on the driver's side.(lay on your back)
Locate a narrow black plastic cover with fuse markings on it. It pops out with a flat screwdriver inserted in the left side slot. A pain to reach but one you get the hang of you'll be OK.
I suggest pair of long nose pliers (small one) to pull out the fuses.

hood latch will not close all the way
Posted by lizaf1117 on
Grab a flashlight and a long screwdriver and peer straight down into the hood latch. You should see the end of the hood cable, it's looped in to a metal bracket. Have a helper pull and let go the hood release cable from inside the car, this cable should move to the when pulled, and return when released.
If it doesn't return, the cable is stretched, or a spring is broken from the cable assembly. Here's a quick fix:
Facing the car and using the screwdriver, push the bracket to your left as far as you can. This resets the latch. Drop the hood from about 2-3 feet above the latch. You need to close it with a bit of speed or the release mechanism will just move. It might take a few times of moving the cable and dropping the hood to get it to latch.
Permanent fix is to replace the cable.

We have a 2003 Corolla, which we bought used a couple of years ago. It runs great, except that there seems to be a problem with the catalytic converter, causing the orange "check engine" light to remain perpetually on. We get it turned off periodically, and then it goes right back on.
Two questions: 1. Does having the light on for a prolonged period of time cause any damage to the car? We were told that it does interfere with regulation of gas use, and may cause the car to be less fuel efficient, but can it hurt the car, long-term, in any other way? 2. One mechanic suggested a cleaning process for the catalytic converter that will cost about 100$. Is there any chance that that could actually solve the problem?

If you haven't replaced the O2 sensor that is causing your check engine light to come on by generating a fault code in the ECM, replace it first. Cleaning the Catalytic Converter is not the thing to do. Replacing the faulty sensor will pay for itself in the long run with the better fuel economy you will get.

Suddenly can't get my gas tank open because the interior fuel tank lever isn't operating on my 2003 Toyota Corolla CE. Any ideas (other than prying it open with a screwdriver) on how to get the tank door released?
Posted by Anonymous... on
check in the trunk for an emergency gas door release, also check in the ownersmanual and it will direct you where to find this.

Last time engine was serviced the establishment did not reset the service engine light thus the "check engine"l light has come on. Is there a way to reset it? The car seems to be running just fine. I managed to reset the service engine light but the "check engine" light will not go off.

If you bring it back to the mechanic who last serviced it he will gladly reset it free of charge.

how many quarts of oil for 2003 toyota corolla do i need?
Posted by chrsvndyk on
No more than 4 quarts since it is a 4 cylinder car. The best way to know how many quarts is to go by how many cylinders the car has.

2005 toyota corolla ac is not working
Posted by dinesh... on
the ac clutch relay fails often. It is located in the fuse box next to the battery under the hood. it is labeled M/G CLT. You can buy one from rockauto.com for $11. You can test by swapping the relay in the fuse box with a similar one. also clean or replace the cabin air filter located behind the glove box.
