First of all, All my congrats to the website administrators and all members... you make this site rock!!
Now, here's the problem that I am facing and the reason of my post: I was installing a remote car starter during the weekend on my Celica 2000 GT, and managed to finish the installation without any issues, nevertheless, when I was putting the cables together in order to finish and close the install, I realized that the power of the accessories (the radio, etc) and the light bulbs on the gauge cluster where switching on and off very fast as I moved the cables - Obviously a sign of a poor connection made while setting up the remote starter.
I stopped moving the cables, pulled out the key, checked the area and found out that even though I could still turn on the car with the key, but now the accessories and all the panel lights (engine, etc) in the cluster where not coming on, except for the abs light. I continued trying to troubleshoot for the cause and found out that the 2 power cables (the white and black/red ones) still had 12 volts on them and that the fuses in the passenger side and under the Hood
This pretty much made me think that the problem is within the ignition switch, as power is coming in. I continued to verify the voltage output based on the different key positions (ACC - ON - RUN) and realized that the cable providing power to the Accessories (Gray cable in the switch) didn't have any power when the key was in the ACC and ON positions. Ignition and Startup cables seem to be working ok.
At this point I am quite discouraged and ran out of troubleshooting ideas. Does anyone have a possible cause or troubleshooting idea??
Thanks in advance to all,
