Question 91 Camry strange idiot light combination

I have a strange grouping of idiot lights illuminated on a 1991 Toyotal Camry DX 2.2l 4-cylinder, automatic, 215k). The "brake", "charge" and "lights" are lit. ("lights" indicates a rear brake or signal light is burned out).

I had the charging system checked at the auto parts store, all appeared normal. The warning lights always come on as a group (i.e. I don't believe there are 3 separate issues. The fluid level in the master cyl is OK, and there are no burned out taillights.)

The windshield washers operate very slowly indicating something is wrong electrically, but what?

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Perplexed in NC.

Sounds like some sort of grounding issue. Get a wiring diagram and go from there.

It also sounds like a possible bad alternator....see my post "The Basics" below for how to test the charging output yourself.

Thanks Joe. New alternator seems to have cured the problem.

Thumbs up

Good job.

BTW: The 4 cylinder Camry engine in 1991 is a 2.0, not a 2.2

The 2.2 starts in 1992
