The fuse block on all 1971-77 Celicas is located under the left side of the instrument panel, near the hood release lever.

The fuse block on 1978-79 models is located behind a panel on the far left side of the instrument panel. The cover panel is next to the steering column and below the warning light display.

All 1980-85 models have two fuse blocks, one is behind a panel in the dash (same as 1978-79), while the other can be found on the left front fender apron.

All 1982-85 models also have two fuse blocks, one being inside the driver's kick panel and the other being under the hood between the battery and ignition coil. There is also a small, two-fuse box on the passenger side kick panel of these models.

If a blown fuse is suspected, turn off the ignition switch. Open the fuse box lid, and pull the suspected fuse straight out with the pull-out tool. Look carefully at the fuse; if the thin wire is broken, the fuse is blown. If you are not sure, try replacing it with a fuse you know to be good.


WARNING
Always install a fuse with the same amperage rating as the one removed; NEVER use a higher amperage fuse.

If the new fuse blows out, there is a problem with the electrical system. Always carry a set of spare fuses.

All Celicas have the turn signals and hazard warning flashers combined as one unit. The flasher unit on 1971-77 models is located underneath the left side of the instrument panel, next to the fuse block.

It may be necessary to remove the fuse block support bracket in order to gain access to the flasher.

The flasher unit on all 1978-85 models is located underneath and behind the center of the driver's side of the instrument panel.
