yes i have a volt meter
Toyota Mechanic: Jay Champagne, Toyota Master Diag. Tech. replied 12 years ago
First thing you need to do is check all fuses.
With the key in the on position use your voltmeter to check power at both sides of each fuse. Check all fuse blocks; under hood and under driver side dash.
You should have power at both sides of each fuse except ones associated with lighting.
Let me know what you find.
