Australian Car Repair Issues? Ask an Auto Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi .and good morning .
You want to replace the instrument cluster on a 1987 Toyota Camry
On this Camry you can replace the cluster with any from the same year, its just a plug in and use system .
there is no programming needed .
Even the ECU can be replaced without reprogramming it as long as it has the same part number .
If the cluster is the same it will work unless this also has problems OR the wiring harness behind the dash is faulty .
What issue was you hacing with the original cluster .
And with the new cluster where the indicators are not working is the speedometer and rev counter working.
Okay then check the connections on the plug on the back ,its old so use some contact cleaner on the pins and plugs
Thrn please get back to me .
Brake lights will stay on due to the brake switch malfunction, check this on the top part of the brake foot pedal .
If the switch is good then you have what i think is your problem a short in the cluster wiring harness .
If you have a multi meter with Ohm meter and voltmeter you will have to check each wire from the cluster to the ECM and other components.
You will need a good wiring diagram for your car so you can check where the wire routes is and where to check
attached is a check sheet for the plug .
