Question about 1998 Toyota Avalon

2 Answers

AC went out all of the sudden, is there a main fuse that could have blown? Seems to be electrical because the controls don't light up and it doesn't show the outside temp on the dash anymore. It was working fine and showed no sign of mechanical failure until it just stopped working.

I checked with the wiring diagram for this automatic air conditioning system for this particular year. It does not use the 10 amp AC fuse in the right kick panel . There are three fuses that are required, the large box type 50 amp HTR fuse, a 10 amp heater fuse located on the driver side instrument panel fuse box and a 5 amp ECU - B fuse located in the fuse box under the hood. Check these three fuses to see if you have 12 V to them.

Yes, there's a fuse box inside the hood for ac but there's one more in another fuse box inside the car for the ac control. Check the one inside first.

SOURCE: 2005 Toyota 4Runner AC temp. control lights are not working.

I am going to guess that the peanut bulb in the knob is burned out.

I had a similar problem with my 2003 4Runner and changed the bulb and it worked fine.

The dealer told me it would take about 8 hours to change the 3 dollar bulb. I looked in my manual and it took me between 5 and 10 minutes tops.

I don't remember what the bulb number is. I do know that I had to get it from a Toyota dealer and not a regular auto parts store.

Hope this helps.

Lights on istrument cluster and heat/ac control went out on 2002 1500 silverado ls


Hi William, I'm glad to help!

William, after working in the automotive field for over 40 years I can tell you that most electrical problems that occur after someone has installed a stereo system comes from a fuse blown somewhere in the system. Take a test light and check all the fuses first if you find one blown replace it and see if everything starts working again. If everything starts working again then your fine, BUT, if its still not working then don't stop there because more then one fuse may have been blown keep going until all fuses have been checked. Hope this helps and have an awesome day William.

Where's the fuse for the AC on 98 Olds 88?


So what does the fuse that blows, protect?

You need a wiring diagram & start to test
the components most likely to cause a high
current draw & blown fuse.

Don't keep replacing it.

You know the fan control circuit works, but the
compressor doesn't stay on. Did you monitor
the compressor as the fuse blew?

May have a module for compressor & fan
If so one side failed
The compressor clutch could be bad

How do I diagnose a recurring blown fuse in a gmc acadia 2009 50 v causes car to get stuck in park, no power windows, no lights, no temperature controls, power locks


You buy the GM factory manual and then use the wiring diagrams to track down the systems the fuse supplies power to, and one by one you go through each circuit until you find the short circuit. There is no cut and dry way that works every time to find this type of an automotive electrical problem, I have been doing auto electric for 25 years and seldom does the same repair fix more than one car or truck. You can also rent the manuals for download at this site for about $40 per year, a great deal. www.alldatadiy.com

Cruise control in my 2003 mr2 spyder suddenly went out


check the fuse for the cruise control from the driver side located on the left side of the dashborad. Make sure the fuse is not blown out.
If it bad, change it out but make sure it is the same rated fuse.

Good luck
