2006 Toyota Camry questions and answers
Q: Where is the fuse for the brake light located on a 2006 Toyota Camry?
I short circuited when I tried to connect the spoiler LED light in the trunk. Now the brake light is not working and gear shift is not moving from park. Car is starting and no warning lights are on in the dashboard. I am suspecting the brake light fuse. Any idea where is the brake light fuse? Thanks Bit Pilsman..I found out from Owners manual although you said exactly what is mentioned in the manual.
A: Do you not have the owner's manual? It shows the fuse panel location, and the fuse diagram is usually printed on the inside of the cover. On most cars, the fuse panel is under the driver's side dash. You can also see if any of the fuses are blown using a flashlight. It is possible that you have a fuse panel in the engine bay as well, but I'm not sure on your particular car.
Q: I have a 2006 Toyota Camry, should i switch to synthetic oil?
I have gotten many different responses. Some people say its too thick for a 4 cylinder, and some say it will definitely make the car smoother ad it would last longer. I do drive quite a bit. More than your average driver. Not tooo much either. Thanks for your help.
A: If you plan on keeping the car until it dies you should switch to a good quality synthetic oil(Mobil 1) and a quality oil filter (Wix is usaully what i get, FRAM is junk, the rest arent bad, Mobil one is the best but a bit overpriced) If you plan on keeping the car for less than 200k miles just keep doing what your doing. One thing though. People that put synthetic oil in there cars tend to notice better gas mileage and this two thick argument makes no sense. 5W-30 dino oil is the same thickness as 5W-30 synthetic. Just buy the one that matches your car.
Q: How much will it cost to replace a rear bumper on a 2006 toyota camry?
Q: where is the air filter on a 2006 toyota camry located?
I am trying to change it. I cant find this anywhere in the user manual or online...
A: the engine air filter? is in the engine compartment on your right hand side. looking at the engine will be a black box to your right. you will need a ratchet with a 6 inch extention and a 10mm socket. be careful not to disconnect any vacuum hoses by mistake. the cabin air filter is behind the glove box. open the glove box and remove the screw for the little glove box strut that is on the right side. remove the bottom part of the strut from the glove box. squeeze the sides of the glove box and pull out. you may have to squeeze hard. there should be a white tray behind that. that's where the cabin filter is. MAKE SURE YOU INSTALL THE AIR FILTER THE SAME WAY YOU TOOK THEM OUT. hopefully they are installed correctly already.
Q: What to do with irresponible private dealer who sold me Toyota Camry 2006, bought last week and givng troubles
I bought 2006 Toyota Camry with 1350 miles from a private dealer on June 15 2006, which he bought from aution place. The car is givng me troubles, It makes a Jerk kind of noise when I leave the Gas pedal and press it again. The Stick shift is hard. The AC leaks lot of water. I have complained the dealer and he made me go around him several times but not responding or helping me. Today he says I am the sole legal and responsible owner and I have to take it to the Toyota Company dealer to fix it my self. Please help me to understand how to handle this situation?
A: I do not believe a lemon law applieds in FL if you purchased a car "as is". But, you should have a manufacturer's warranty if the car is less than a year old with hardly any miles. If the dealer is scamming you, check with the better business bureau on what to do, turn him in. Your local Toyota dealer should be able to handle your problems. The one on East 50 is pretty good.
Q: Where can I find a video on how to change brake pads on a 2006 Toyota Camry?
I found this Youtube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X3tOZWSOmxs However, it really didn't help, since each screen is so small and fast ("1 minute brake job"). I've looked at some Toyota forums but didn't see any pictures or videos. Perhaps someone here knows? Thanks.
A: Usually after one of the videos is done...as you know...they show choices for other videos at the end.....maybe check one of those. I see several tips on the following videos that may help you... just watch for the other video choices after this video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w7Kr45CNHBs&NR=1

Q: what is a reasonable charge for replacing a water pump on my 2006 toyota camry with 40k miles?
A: I'm not a mechanic but having owned 5 Toyotas from brand new, it sounds way to early or at least I have never had a water pump replaced so soon. Hopefully you have good quality mechanic or at least went to local Toyota dealer for 2nd opinion Also recommend only using genuine Toyota parts esp in engine area. FYI list MSRP for genuine Toyota water pump on 2006 Camry for 4 cylinder 2.4 engine is $141.80 and if 6 cylinder 3.3 engine it is $118.65. Note there may be seals and other related parts involved like perhaps $20 or so Toyota Red Coolant etc. Only once on my 1st Toyota 1980 Corolla Station Wagon did I ever have just the water pump by itself replaced. All other times, I had my mechanic replace it when he was changing the timing belt and I also insisted on the thermostat. I believe each time I was charged 4 or 5 hours of labor bec the labor alone many years ago was $250 for 1993 Camry and I recently had the timing belt-water pump & thermostat changed on 1998 Sienna XLE minivan for first time with 97,970 miles in Dec 2007 and paid $320 labor but then again timing belt is much more labor intensive bec water pump sits at top connected. Hope the Above Info Gives You Insight!
Q: Need Help With 2006 Toyota Camry Modifications?
My boyfriend is looking for some parts for his car this Christmas. I'm looking at spending about 300-400$. I was planning on getting a cold air intake. Any advice on where and what to look for? Any other part that would go well with a cold air intake? Thanks!!
A: The best gift you can give is the advice to keep the car stock. That car was not built with performance in mind. It was built to be a comfortable, fuel efficient, reliable family car. You cannot pull power out of a car that was designed for comfort and reliability. If he wants to do something with his car, it should be either cosmetic (DO NOT BUY A BODY KIT AS IT WILL DEVALUE THE CAR) or audio related. Get some rims or a sound system or something like that. A cold air intake for that car will cost around $200 and might get him 3-5 horsepower. Nothing he would notice or feel.

Q: 2006 Toyota Camry air conditioning button won't work?
My Air was working just fine and I pressed the AC button to turn the air off and it would not turn off. I pressed the button a few more times and it finally turned off. Now I can't get it to turn back on. What can I do or how much is it going to cost me to get the air working. It's hot in Florida!
A: More that likely it's a fuse that's out. check your owners manual for the fuse box to find where it is and chances are the a/c fuse is burned out.
