Default 2003 Camry Turn Signals

Is there a way to make 2003 Camry Turn Signals click audibly? They are very
quiet. Sometimes, I fail to notice that one is flashing, and drive on,
puzzled by the funny expressions and hand and finger gestures my fellow-
motorists direct at me.

I looked this up on Google but did not find a definitive answer. I
apologise if it's an old and tired topic.

The electronic flasher is probably too quiet in that car. Sometimes
it's the enclosure or location that kept the noise down, because the
electronic flasher in other Camrys sound pretty loud.

If you need to replace it, try the Tridon Flasher LF12 at your local
parts store. www.partsamerica.com prices the "loud flasher", a
mechanical one, at $9.88; the electronic one (EP35) at $17.99.

This should solve your problem.

BTW, the "loud" mechanical flasher seems to make use of two terminals
vs. three the electronic one uses. The catalog says it should fit the
2.4L and 3.0L in the 03.

If in doubt, give Trico a call, such as if you need the LF12-K instead:

Thank you. I'd love to do that. Do you know if the flasher is easily
accessible? Is it under insulation behind the glove box as has been
suggested to me?

OK, I was bored and read it.

Why anyone would purchase an extended warranty on a Toyota is beyond me, but
to buy it on a leased car sounds completely insane.

Anyway, it sounds like you did get your warranty extended by three months,
and I think you are going a bit overboard with your complaints.

a bit? You think? sounds like a tempest in a teapot to me....since the
owner didn't read the papers he was given at the time of the car's purchase,
noting the backdating of three months' time, I'd have to say it's his
responsibility to do so. I loved the letter from Toyota Canada at the end
of the website...I've never seen smoke blown up somebody's ass quite so
artfully.

Actually the Owner's Warranty Booklet contains a Registration
Certificate which states:

I the undersigned, authorized representative of the company firm or
corporation named below, certify that the NEW vehicle herein described
is assigned ON THIS DATE for registration to the purchaser named below
and the vehicle is NEW and HAS NOT BEEN PREVIOUSLY REGISTERED.

Toyota Credit Canada Inc
P M McRoberts (signed)
11/09/2003.

That date, September 11, 2003 is the date I picked the car up. Toyota
Canada Inc, Toyota Credit Canada Inc, and Burlington Toyota Inc now use
the date May 29, 2003.

Thank you for prompting me to re-check this; I'll add a scan of the
document to my page.

Now, if you could just tell me where the turn signal flashers on the
2003 Camry are located?

The flasher unit (electronic 3-plug) is rectangular and plugs into a
patch panel under the driver side console. It's near the left foot rest
and you should be able to see it and reach it.

Thank you. I can find the left foot rest, I'm pretty sure! Tomorrow
morning I'll be right at it.

I did not find the flashers. Of course this not mean that they are not
there. It just means that I couldn't find them.
