If you stop the horn then your car is no longer road worthy. You have a short circuit, most probably by the steering wheel itself where the wire to the horn connects the horn button. Remove steering wheel and inspect contact strip first.

the emission label found under the hood will state which the vehicle complies to.

why ask, please do tell?
adding a dash gauge, or what? got errors?
which one, ? on some engines there are 2 and 3.
VVT, can have 2, and enigine main gallery 1.
why not post the context of all this, so we can get on same page>?
how ? (unscrew it)
when posting post what engine you have. if not below size.
most cars have 2 to 10 options world wide.
and i cant guess that, not ever. nor your country.
2.0 L 3S-FE I4 (petrol)
2.0 L 3S-GE I4 (petrol

Ours (USA) has the 3S engine.
VVT-i, or Variable Valve Timing with intelligence,

so are you getting VVT errors?, if yes, why skip that fact?
most VVT have solenoids and sensors. On v6 two times this.
scan it and report the errors, so we can see why you ask.
if VVT issues, i strongly recommend a real FSM.
if in uSA alldata.com is ok
if not , a real FSM for your car, matched.

so why not scan it.
Connect any scan tool
crank it for 5sec.
release key,
see those DTC's they tell you what part is bad, or a huge clue.
wires, you replaced them 1 for 1 or mixed them.??????? oops now 2 times bad.

but no spark is no spark, on ALL CYLINDERS>????
which engine
2.0 L 3S-FE I4 (petrol)
2.0 L 3S-GE I4 (petrol)

this engine has a coil pack with 4 wires, never mix them. that wires.
and do check for spark at all 4 ends.
see the coil pak here, see those numbers there. they tell you
where to connect the wires.

this photo even shows, where they go.
if spark is gone, ITS SCAN TOOL TIME.
barrow one, rent one, buy one of $9 (off fleabay)

this ECU/PCM will in fact tell you if the CMP or CKP sensors
are dead. IT WILL.
if you dont believe me, unplug one and see, BAM, P0340 or 355 or?

THE 02 sensors is stuck lean. at 0v. the ECU
goes max rich in this case. (compensates) 173 means ECU slammed rich due to 02 reading gross lean.
lots of causes.:
1: a bad 02 , say stuck at 0volts. ( over 100k miles they can to that)
2: exhaust leaks{cracks} near 02. and stuck at 0volts
3: dead or weak, or dirty MAF, causing illegal unmetered air. lean.
4: intake air system has gross air leak.

easy peasy.
or get that lost operators guide from the glove box
buyone, put it back, i do, every time.
that way , i dont get stranded for minor things.

1999 Toyota RAV4 | Answered on Jan 22, 2014

it is missfire
and the CEL glows, and you scan it and get P030x. errors.
first turn it up , then see if misfiring ends. that is first.
spending big cash diagnosing a non serviced car is over the top.

1999 Toyota RAV4 | Answered on Jan 22, 2014

why do you think its off, , eyes on marks? or strobe light or? what?
old oil turns black , on purpose. so it dont fill the engine full of gunk.
dont run oil for 5k miles. 3k on high mileage engines. max.

the belt can fail because >
1: over 60kmiles?
2: not a gate belt but in fact a fleabay-china $5 belt.
3: cam cog bent.
4: someone set the tension wrong, (top cause , RTM)
5:oil leaks to belt , belt dies early death.
6: running no cover, or cover is cut to ribbons, letting sand and gravel kill the belt in short order
7: spraying belt with belt dressing, bad to the bone that.
8:: im sure there are are other ways to kill it early, but i give up.
9: oops one more , the last joker, failed to put the head to block guide pins back, now the 2 cogs are misaligned, and belt dies. early.

seem all ways, ask me...
what engine, there are many used, over the world on RAV4.

my guess
2.0 L 3S-FE I4 (petrol)
2.0 L 3S-GE I4 (petrol)

and this is bad why? as long as it shuts off with the key..

1999 Toyota RAV4 | Answered on Jan 04, 2014

check the fuse for your brake lights, check your brake light switch. If the brake lights don't go on your car will not shift out of park. The shifter should have an override button. look for an access hole (cover) near the shifter, pop the cover off and push a pencil down there to shift. check your owners manual for specific information on the use of the override button

my guess, is your are driving Part time 4wd on pavement
stop its not for pavement, its for ICE or DIRT.

you car has no center differential read the operators guide
it tells you not to do the, RTM> !!

or by any AWD car. or truck.
read this first, learn how each work the buy the car best for you..
