Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. Can you check for power in some locations (a test light or voltmeter)? Please advise.

I have a multimeter

Ok. Let's go to the car and raise the hood. Open the fuse panel and, using the label on the panel lid, locate the following relay: H-LP Start the vehicle and remove this relay. Place your meter on 20 VDC and ground the black lead to the battery negative terminal. Probe all four sockets of the H-LP relay. Advise how many sockets have power. Thanks

after putting it together this time, I think I over looked it or I had something not pushed all they way in and the only lights that don't work are the blinkers and the reverse lights. But the hazard lights do work
Expert:  Toyota Service replied 1 year ago.

The turn signals and the reverse lamps are the only ones that are inoperative, is this correct? Thanks

also the ac and heat fan aren't coming on. And it seems the car ain't starting without a jump and after I remove the cables, the electronics begin turning off then on for a few minutes while the motors idles then eventually shuts off.

Could that be because it hasn't been started in a week and it's been below freezing here?
Expert:  Toyota Service replied 1 year ago.

If the car needs jumped, and the electronics starts turning off, your alternator is not producing sufficient voltage to maintain the electronic loads placed on it. I would have the alternator output tested. It needs to be 14.4 volts DC, and at least 50-60 amps. No less on either specification. If either is less, you need to replace the alternator. It is also what is causing the battery to go dead and you have to jump it.
