1993 Toyota Camry 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 145000 miles
I hope that someone can help as my issue on my 93' Camry LE V4 is similar.
Long story short. My instrument panel lights were out, I found that the fuse controlling these lights had blown. During the process of replacing the fuse, the ignition was turned to the " ON" position; thusly causing a spark blowing the new fuse when plugged in. I plugged in a new fuse. Without the Brain fart blunder I now have a new issue.
With all previous issues resolved with the new fuse, I now have no rear lights or license plate lights when the headlights are on. When the brake is applied, ALL tail lights illuminate as normal (no license plate lights of course), when I let off the brake, the rear main tail lights go out and the only light in the rear comes from the red markers at the extreme corners.
After troubleshooting at the local mechanic, the lamp failure box in the trunk was burned out (opened the yellow box and one wire was burned completely) I purchased a new one on Ebay for $24.00 (all numbers matched perfectly) I installed it and it didnÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½t fix the issue. When I unplugged the module, it was smelling slightly burnt. I opened it and nothing was burnt out but I purchased another just to make sure.
What do I need to do to resolve this? Anything I need to do before plugging in the new module? Any help is greatly appreciated.
I cannot pass inspection without license plate lights or the main rear lights. DonÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½t think I have burned wires as I would assume the lights wouldnÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½t work at all.
Thank you in advance
