How to Replace Your Turn Signal Relay in a Toyota Camryby Contributor
Even simple auto repairs can be costly. Perform simple repairs on your car rather than taking the car to the shop. When the turn signal lights are having problems on a Toyota Camry, you can fix them yourself in a few hours.
Check your turn signal lights. When one turn signal light goes bad, it will cause the circuit to appear that the flasher is going bad. Replace any bad bulbs that are bad and retest your turn signals.
Locate the turn signal and hazard flasher relay. It is located under the driver's side dash below and behind the fuse box. Remove the cover of the fuse box. Using a screwdriver, remove the screw holding the fuse box in place. Remove the fuse box and locate the flasher relay underneath.
Remove the bad flasher and replace with the new flasher. Reposition the fuse box and screw the holding screw back in. Replace the fuse box cover.
Start the Camry and test each of the turn signals and the flashers.
- To replace the rear bulbs, simply open the access panel located in the back corner of the interior of the car and unscrew the socket of the bulb you wish to change. Remove the bad bulb and install a new bulb in its place. Then close the access panel. For the rear bulbs, use bulb number 921 Type C.
- To replace the front bulb, use a screwdriver to remove the lens and exchange the bulbs, new for old. Then refasten the lens with the removed screws. The front bulbs are number 3457 Type C.
