The lights on the center console where the climate control switches are
located, on my 91 Previa went off a few days ago. I checked all the
fuses, but couldn't find any blown fuse. Do you folks know what might
be the problem?
Most likely place to start - bulbs are cheap, and you'll know right
then whether that fixes it.
And if that isn't it, check for power and ground at the lamp sockets
while you have it apart. Check both leads to both a +12V source and a
ground source with a conventional test lamp, Toyota often supplies
full +12 (fused) from the lighting relay to the dash lamps, and the
rheostat control dims the common ground connection.
If that's not it, follow the power and ground (or lack thereof) back
to the next connection point.
If the control panel has a multi-connector and the lamp sockets
twist-lock into a circuit board, check for cold solder joints to the
connector where the wiring harness plugs in.
The wiring harness for the console might have come unplugged, or the
wire pinched and broke farther back.
Trust me, it's easier to do than describe. If it's not the lamps,
get a service manual and it'll probably walk you right through it.
