Sorry, was not available at your time. Since the blue light comes on, this tells me that the hi-beam fuse is good. Go to the pass side headlamp, and, behind it, remove the connector for the inop bulb, and remove the bulb. Examine the filament on the bulb. Is it broken in half? If so, you need two hi-beam bulbs. Get back to me if you need more info.

SOURCE: Daytime Running Lights Inoperative 2002 Toyota Camry

[Information] For a 2002 Toyota Camry, the Daytime Running Lights (DRL) operate utilizing the High Beams (inner Lamps closer to the center of the vehicle front) at a reduced power.

[The troubleshooting process:] Review the Owner's Manual and ensure the test configuration matches the following criteria:
1. According to the 2002 Toyota Camry Owner's Manual (Check your Owners Manual):
"The DRL system will make your headlights come on at a reduced brightness when:
The light switch s in the "DRL" position.
The ignition is on with the engine running.
The headlight switch is off.
The parking brake is released."


2. Set the Test Conditions according to Step 1 above.

3. Check the headlight bulbs to ensure they are not burned out. If one burns out, there is a fair chance that the other would have burned out at the same time. Replace as necessary. In this case, if the high beams operate, the DRLs should also operate.
4. Test the system, ensuring the step 1 conditions are set. (Engine running, Multi-function Switch on Turn Signals in "DRL" position, headlight switch off (repeating what the manual says -- it should be obvious that in the "DRL" position, the headlight switch should be off / do not have the switch positioned to "High Beam"), and the Parking Brake "off").
5. If DRL lights do not work, check the engine compartment Fuse and Relay Box. there is a 5 Amp DRL fuse -- replace it with the spare. Test (step 4).
6. If it does not work, swap around or replace relays -- there are three (3). Any one of them could be bad (stuck or burned out). Test (step 4).
7. Other less likely possible issues could be that the Multi-function Switch is broken or a connection / wire is broken. [Beyond the scope of this process.]


My problem was that the test configuration did not have the engine running and parking brake off - Step 1. Problem solved with much thought, repetitive tests on the vehicle and going back to the basics -- what does the Owner's Manual say and where are the applicable fuses and relays located?

My lights are not see properly if i dip my lights i can only see in a distance of 5mitres but if i beam mylights i can see a distance of 9 to 10 mitres its a toyota corolla ae91 please help me


Your headlights need aiming correctly. There are screws next to the headlight the achieve this . Park the car on level ground about 2 meters (6feet) from a solid wall and turn the lights on to high beam. You will see the centre of the beam measure the height from the floor to the center of the headlight and mark this on the wall directly in front of the vehicle. The center of the beam has to be adjusted to to this point.Don't worry about low as the beam for low is set by the bulb and is correctly positioned in relation to high at all times

Cleaned the snow off the Avalon and noticed a loud pop and the right highbeam light had blown out. Within 10 minutes as driving heard the left highbeam light blow out. Never had this happen with any...


There is a Technical Service Bulletin regarding the high beam bulbs on the Avalon. TSB# 0044-10, NHTSA# 10033406. Mind you, this is not a recall, so any repairs the dealer makes will cost you dearly. Since the high beams are standard halogen bulbs, I would recommend that you replace them yourself with Sylvania long life bulbs. If the dealer replaces the entire assembly, it may involve the HID low beams to the tune of $1000 or more. You can contact your dealer and ask for information about the tsb, all the dealerships received the tsb. If he offers to repair it in accordance with the tsp, get it in writing that there will be no charge.

High beam headlights not working


Hello chinson. When the highbeams are not working, the problem is usually the switch. Since this is a 2008, your warranty will probably be in play. Contact your Toyota dealer before you do a self-repair. Joe

When i turn them on one goes out..i changed it out about six months ago


My guess is that when you start your car , the daytime running lights are on . When you turn on the headlights , the low beams come on , and one of them is burnt out. With your engine running , turn on the lights and then switch from high beam to low beam a couple of times. If you have 2 then 1 then 2 , you know a bulb is burnt out.

Dim headlight


This is always caused by a loose or corroded headlight ground wire, check around the head light for a wire screwed to the sheet metal or radiator support.

The only thing that all of your problems have in common is the light switch and the dash wiring harness. The stereo is linked to the light switch because of it's illumination feature' You need to test the light switch with a test light by probing the wires at it's plug.
