1995 Toyota Camry Repair Question
Toyota Camry Terminal Problem
Keep in mind, relay terminals 3 & 1 are supposed to be 12 volts at all time regardless of HL switch position the color of the grass, wind direction, anything. Hot (12 volts to ground) all the time.

I'll tell you what guys, That relay box is what I would consider a rats nest. There are 3 layers of plates and poles that all seem to intertwine.I couldn't make much out of it when I took it apart except that the top sockets don't line up with the plugs on the bottom. I did ( by use of my meter) find out that the #3 leg had continuity with a red & black wire in one of the plugs. Also Legs 1,2,3 all SEEMED to be connected . Here's the kicker tho, after I put the box back together, it won't start. So now I think I'll have to take it apart again and see what I did or didn't do. Anyway that's where I'm at right now. I'm going to be tied up this morning buying a 2002 chevy venture van for my grandaughter so I won't be able to do anything with the camry till this afternoon. I hope this van turns out to be a good one or I may be a permanant customer for you guys (ha,ha). From all I've read about this van ,it doesn't have a good track record so here's hoping. Talk to you later.
By the way guys in case you want to see who you're talking to, here's a picture of me with my new best friend. I'm the one sitting down.
I'm back: I tried starting the car this afternoon and guess what? It started. I let it run for a few minutes then shut it down and it started right up again.So I guess everythings allright in that dept. but still no lights. So what I'm going to do is what I said earlier, Install a jumper from the #13 wire on the steering column to the #4 pole on the relay then install a jumper from the #3 to the # 1 pole and see if I get lights with control from the switch. Does that sound OK?
When I jumpered #4 pole on the relay to #13 on the column the lights came on and I could switch from hi to low but I couldn't turn them off with the switch. So I found another ground on the column and I think it's #5 and when I hooked it up the lights came on and I could control the hi low beams also the flash and I could turn off the lights with the switch. The only thing I did notice was that the hl switch has 3 positions and when I set up my jumper the lights come on in the tailight position and the headlight position. I don't know if they're supposed to or not. Also I jumpered from #1 to #3 relay pole.
You have stated time and again that you have no power (0 volts)to terminal #3 on the relay ... terminal #3 connects to terminal #4 when the switch is used ..by jumping between term 13 on the switch and term #4 on relay .. you are just bypassing the intergration relay !!! what happens if you just jumper the #1 and #3 terminal on the relay .. take off the ground between #13 or #5 on switch !! just jump the #1 hot terminal to #3 hot terminal ? let me know
Nothing happens When I jump #1 to #3 with the switch on or off
ok .. jump the #4 with the #14 (red/black wire) terminal on the switch and let me know waht happens now .. leave #1 and #3 jumped !!
Dave: I'm kind of lost because I can't find a red/black wire coming from the HL switch. I'm looking at the old switch I took out and there is no red/black wire.
These 2 diagrams overlap a little ..the wire at the arrow ?
