  1. It was fuse No 21 from the driver side fuse box.
  2. yea it hasnt been used alot. when my dad bought the car in 2012 the owner plugged out the cable to the 12v socket so we always thought it was broken he didnt use it till 2017 till we tried to fix the radio. And even then he didnt use it much the past year and 4 months the car has been in the drive coz it was getting repaired.
  3. well Im not sure if the fact of being on a hill contributed to that but i doubt it. But Ill have to get some need fuses so I can test that theory
  4. I dont use the cig lighter I just use the socket
  5. Oh and I was using the multimeter on the cig lighter and it was showing 13.5
  6. check out this This explains my problems and what could be the problem to it
  7. It was a 15A fuse
  8. So my toyota Yaris previous blew a fuse that controlled the Alternator warning lamp, engine management, fuel pump relay, multifunction display, SRS warning lamp, supplementary restraint system (SRS). It blew before about 3 months ago and I replaced it then while I was driving it blew again and I replaced it and it blew instantly again. I had to use a higher amp fuse so I could nurse it back home. Is it the pump or is the filter blocking the pump from doing its job or something?
  9. I think it might be a fuse problem
  10. So I started the car this morning and I checked the 12V socket and it came up with 13.5. I checked the battery again and it said 14.04
  11. So today and yesterday I started my Yaris Mk1 and I plugged in my FM radio transmitter that tells the voltage of the battery from the cig lighter port, It usually comes up with 13.9 volts. For the past two days its fluctuated between 12.8 volts and 13.3 volts which is usually. When I use my OBD scanner and record the volts its the same thing but when i look at my multimeter while the car is on it shows at 13.9 or 14 volts when I put the probes on the battery. so is it a fuse or relay that is damaging. I was worried it was the alternator but I'm not sure.

    Engine not starting

    it was for Alternator warning lamp, engine management, fuel pump relay, multifunction display, SRS warning lamp, supplementary restraint system (SRS). and it was located in the fuse box in the passenger/ driver compartment. the fuses location is in the top left of it and its quite obscure to actually see. but its a 15A if that helps
  13. So i figured it out. it was a tiny fuse that was in a corner that was obscure and difficult to spot
