Did this issue result from from someone performing any maintenance/repair? Was the vehicle operating when this issue developed?

Did you check Fuse #22 10 amp....at the Instrument Panel Fuse Box?

Last chance no it was doing fine. It all stopped when I was driving. Yes replaced that fuse but it didn't help.

Fuse replaced, only one blowing. 10 amp. Disconnected all three instrument panel connectors, replaced fuse again. Blew again. Windows still do not work. It seemed the alternator is making noise. Next step, I guess is to see if it is surging or dying... I do not find a separate fuse for the windows. The door locks work ... key in ignition warning works, door ajar light works, dome works. All other fuses work..... Any other ideas would be nice.

Also no noticeable broke, chaffed, or chewed wires

SO...which Fuse keeps blowing? How is it labeled? My guess is we are going to need a wiring diagram to pinpoint the short which is causing this fuse to go bad. Once we know WHICH fuse is blowing ...we can find out which circuits are powered by that fuse. Example..... If your Power Windows are on that same circuit...then the short may be there.

Also no noticeable broke, chaffed, or chewed wires The fuse labeled gauges

OK...now we have to find out how many circuits this "Gauges" fuse controls. So...what else does not work besides the Power Windows and Dash? Car starts up and runs correctly? Any WARNING lights on or flashing?

That noisy Alt. MAY be the root cause of this issue. Car-ful-ly....disconnect the Alt and see if your problems go away.

The car runs good. Gas guage works horn, radio, wipers work... Just windows. Speedo, tsch, temp are out. Gotta find the power window circuits and unplug them.

You might consider unplugging the Alternator first....it's easier. Just be careful. Don't let any of the wires short to ground. Do the Back Up Lights Work?

Which 10 amp fuse is/keeps blowing. These fuses usually have a number and a description. Which Engine is in this vehicle. Does this vehicle have Day Time Running Lights?

Alternate disconnected makes no diff. Watching the fuse as engine goes to "ON" Is when it pops. This is with all the plugs behind kick panel drivers side unplugged. All tail lights, brake, tail and turn work.... Door locks operative... Wiring under hood looks to be OK...

10

Guess I will just have to follow wire by wire.... Fun times....

Do the back up lights work?

Still no luck.... Disconnecting one plug at a time, .... No Joy..... What is common factor with speedo, windows, tach, odo, temp gauge, other then the 10 amp fuse? Is there a computer modual hiding somewhere?

Good question....that's why we need a wiring diagram for this vehicle. A WD would save a lot of time and labor.

10

Checking the neutral/safety this evening.... Well, the plug at the tranny... Not sure what I will find. Disconnected all window switches. Still have not seen any wires frayed or broke.

10

2000 2.2 automatic. Fuses are not numbered, but description is there.... GUAGE.20A

10

10amp.... Fat fingers

So....which fuse keeps blowing...the 20 amp GAUGE Fuse??.......or the !0 amp ????? Fuse.

1,400

Try this...Google..."2000 Camry Fuse Box Diagram". There you should find a list of fuses in the fuse box in question. There you should see a list of circuits this 10 amp Gauges fuse controls. The Warning buzzer is the next item I would disconnect.

Nocar.....did you ever resolve the issue with this vehicle?
