I have a 1994 Camry
V6 LE. Recently purchased. The previous owners let it sit and told me there were battery problems. I put almost 1000 miles on it without any issues at all. I drove it home parked it. Changed clothes to go to soccer and when I came out, there was no battery power at all. No lights, no door chimes, no dash lights when the key was turned. Nothing. Purchased a new battery to start my trouble shooting, cleaned the battery terminal connectors, and hooked it up. No change. Pulled the main fuse, and it tested good. Where do I go from here?
JA: Have you checked the fuses? The dashboard bulbs?
Customer: Some fuses, yes. But this is a system wide problem. No headlights
, no taillights, no dash lights, no door chime, no windows. What fuse can I check that would affect all of the systems on the car all at once?
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Hoping to fix it myself. I was hoping that since it affects all power, it would be easy to identify and repair. Purchased a new battery to start my trouble shooting, cleaned the battery terminal connectors, and hooked it up. No change. Pulled the main fuse, and it tested good.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: Don't believe so. But it ran coming home from work. I parked it, and 15 minutes later it was and continues to be completely dead
