Today i was driving my car and all of sudden everything in the dash turned off but engine kept running. My odometer is off so is the ac. Ac wont turn on. Signal lights wont work. Headlights wont work. I checked the fuses and they are all good. Any ideas?? Its an 04 corolla. Radio and clock are still working
so i checked the fuse box under the steering wheel and found out the car was missing the PW fuse wich is weird because power windows have always been working ... strange anyway i placed the one that goes there an 30 amp and also noticed the gauge fuse a 10a was blown. i replaced the fuse with a new one and everything started working again. went for a drive like a 30 min drive and the gauge fuse blew again causing PW, AC, LIGHTS everything to stop working. Now this is not normal. i thought that each thing had its own fuse and now without the gauge fuse nothing works. any ideas or clues on the issue?
Take the fuses it feeds out one at a time until it doesn't blow. Or reverse that if you don't have many fuses I suppose. Take them all out and put them back in one a day lets say until you find the one that blows it.
all fuses are ok the one that keeps braking is the gauge fuse the 10a. this is weird there has been no work on the car in a looooong time, well to be precise i bought the car with 17k on 06 and no major work has been done to the car just regular maintenance oil filter sparks and such the car has 150k+. and on top of that when this happend and i started looking at fuses thats when i noticed the car didnt have the pw fuse. if so how did the pw been working fine all this time? sorry for my english
my cousin's 06 camry had this same problem. Turns out it was a short in the ABS module due to brake fuid leaking internally onto the abs computer. I'm not sure if the corolla circuitry is the same but we replaced the abs module and it's working great now. It's a direction you could check.
