Naturally, on the advice of the dealer, I replaced the cluster (388.00 retail) and the fuse continued to blow. I checked the dc resistance and determined that the cluster is relay controlled making cold testing without a schematic impossible. If there is reverse biased diode across the master relay, that could be blown. Without a diagram the rest is up to those 85.00 per hour electrical techs and a good week in the shop to get to the problem. Another possibility is to disassemble as much of the dash as possible and in total darkness, install fuse, switch on ignition and watch for tiny spark in wiring harness away from fuse block. Installed a lamp in series with the fuse to limit the current can furhter assist in locating a short to ground, bad diode, or other steering problem with the electrical. This all gives new meaning to the word-cheap or cheapest. TGFSD=thank God for schematic diagrams.

How do you remove the instrument cluster in a 1993 Toyota Camry?

It is not difficult. First you have to remove the 12vot cigarette lighter plastic and then remove the radio. 4 screws for the radio. Then you have to remove the panel that goes from the radio up to the instrument cluster. This panel has 4 screws. 2 of them are on top of the instrument cluster (visible) and the other two should be visible after removal of radio.

How do you change the instrument panel lamps on a 2002 Chevy Prizm?

Instrument Panel Lamp Procedure per Prizm Shop Manual This procedure only applies to cars with tilt steering wheels. Prizms without tilt wheels are infinitely more difficult because you have to disable the airbag system and remove the trim covers from the steering wheel. Important: The ignition switch must be in the OFF position when removing the instrument cluster assembly. 1. Tilt the steering column down in order to gain the necessary clearance to remove the instrument panel cluster trim plate. 2. Remove the two screws that secure the instrument panel cluster trim plate. 3. Disengage the two lower clips (hidden) 4. Gently remove the instrument panel cluster trim plate from the instrument panel assembly. 5. Remove the three screws which secure the instrument panel assembly, pull out the assembly carefully. 6. Mark the the 4 electrical connectors where they connect to the cluster assembly so that you remember which connector went to which socket 7. Disconnect the 4 electrical connectors from the cluster assembly 8. Remove the instrument cluster assembly 9. Remove the instrument cluster retainer with the instrument cluster lens attached from the instrument cluster case by releasing the 8 locking tabs. 10. Remove the cluster bulb socket from the instrument cluster case by turning in a counterclockwise direction. Remove the old bulb from the socket and replace the bulb. 11. Reverse the procedure to reassemble NOTE: This is such a convoluted procedure you should replace all bulbs while you are this deep into it. Trust me, the other bulbs will soon go bad. Incredibly, the shop manual does not list the part number of the bulb. Note 2: It is easier, and you are less likely to break the trim plate, if this is done while the dash is warm and therfore more flexible. Like parked in the sun for a while before starting. Also, the bulb is a #194, and you will want to get green colored "instrument bulb boots".

Will a 1600 toyata tazz corolla instrument cluster work on a 1300 tazz sport?

Open the dashboard underneath the steering column. If you you see a yellow plug that's not connected to anything you should be able to fit the 1600 instrument cluster without modification and it will work.
