Question about 1997 Toyota Camry

Open Question

Stereo wiring have installed an after market stereo in 99 toyota carib wagon and i think i may have got my earth/ground wire wrong because now the tail light circiut fuse keeps blowing when lights turned on, i worked out the power and speaker wires with the aid of a meter but had two wires left that indicated a potential earth/ ground i used the greenish one, the other choice was brown i now believe this to be the wrong choice.... is this new assumption correct and also by swapping the wires would this correct my tail light issue..... only asking because i am away from vehicle for a few days..,.

SOURCE: Tail light fuse keeps blowing. I have traced the

Are the bulbs out of the sockets and the fuse blows?
Take bulbs out and check again
Place one back at a time if fuse was OK with bulbs out to locate bad bulb.
Otherwise.......
Do this........if still needed with bulbs out and fuse blowing.
Put a circuit breaker in to replace the fuse of the same amperage.
It will trip off then back on.
Use a standard cheap magnetic compass........place along lighting wiring........the wire with current will cause the needle to jump as circuit breaker trips on and off.
Follow path of current to problem.....the compass will stop moving once past the shorted /grounded wire/connection.

Iam upgrading my 98 corolla stereo to sony. My stereo says ground wire is brown and aftermarket sony stereo say is black what should i do


Black or black with a white stripe has always been ground. I would check the brown wire with a volt ohm meter. Set it on lowest ohms, Probe the brown wire to any metal part(you may have to scratch the metal. The meter will show numbers. If it reads OL. then it not a ground. Brown wires are always for interior lighting. to include radio. But i have to say, I have never done a 98 toyota.

Radio on but no sound after installing after market subs


to create a spark you must have had power connected somewhere. Did you have your radio turned on when you connected? if yes you may have blown the amp in the radio. If no then you have other issues with wiring and possible damage.
It's one of those instances where I'd need to be there to diagnose it.
Start by double checking the stereo is working, check its wiring is correct try each speaker connection in turn. If the stereo works and all the outputs work then double check the amps wiring and try a normal speaker connected to it. You must get the picture by now, you need to identify the source of the fault. to help you better I'd need a wiring diagram.

I just bought a 2006 Toyota Corolla S, and my dash lights and tail lights wont come on. All the other lights work, such as the headlights, break lights, turn signals, four ways, front fog lights and...


the tail light issue could be just bad bulbs, check them with a meter ,, also, check the sockets for power to each contact point,, normally if the brake lights and flashers are working, the tail lights should too,, as far as the dash lights have you installed an after market stereo? If so a common problem is a wrong wire got grounded,The harness from the car to the factory radio has a wire for the dash lights that shows up as ground with the light off. When the lights are on the wire is 12V+. Check to see if you connected the ground from the new stereo to this wire. The radio will work perfect but everytime you turn thr park light on the fuse will blow...and the radio will continue to work. There should be a ground wire in the harness as well, ensure you connect the ground from the new stereo to this wire. there is a 15 amp fuse that blows, check them with a meter rather than by sight

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.

New radio installed - now dash lights don't work


Most factory stereos are wired to the dash dimmer switch. Usually if the dash lights go out after an after market stereo installation, it is because the wire that originally went to the factory stereo is not used for after market stereos. Double check the fuses and ensure the wire that controlled the lights on the factory stereo is not grounding out on something.
