Default 2000 camry no guages, brake lights, radio or window... help

Hello, I am hoping somebody can help me with the current problem that I have. I am working on a 2000 Camry v6 that the instrument pane is not working and along with the radio or the windows. The car also does not go out park unless pressing the bypass switch. I did the obvious and checked the fuses and all of them where okay. I also replaced the brake light switch and I still have the same problems. If anybody can help I would greatly appreciate it thanks. btw not MIL but the dome lights do work.

Do the brake lights, cigarette lighter, power outlet (if the car has one) and dome light work?

Did you check the following fuses:

Door, Gauge, Power, Cig, ECU-IG, Stop, Panel, Radio 1 and Radio 2.

Not sure given all fuses are OK.

One more issue to check is the fusible links located inside a small box on the drivers side of the radiator.

Stop light switch controls stop lights and shifter lock system. Both receive power form the the stop light switch, then Stop fuse, then 100A Fusible link the above box then a fusible link in the wire between the 100A link and battery. You stated you replaced the stop switch. Does one of the wires at the switch have 12V DC constantly?

Power window and instrument panel power also goes through the two fusible links.

The link below provides some info on the 100A Alt fusible link:

For the above items the wire fusible link is the one between the 100A fusible link and battery. The 100A is a block design.

If the car starts up the fusible wire link above should be OK. After the power gets to the small box stated above it splits out.

Note: The above wire/cable is different from the one going to the starter solenoid, this cable only powers the starter motor.

Thanks toyo, Fount the problem and it was the 100amp fuse in the main fusebox in the engine compartment. I didn't see it before because some jacka$$ folded it over because they where too cheap to buy a new one.

Thank for posting back with the find.

Might poke around and determine if the previous owner did anything else to the car like this.
