It could possibly be the relay that's located on the headlight assembly. Good replacements can be found in almost any junkyard Fiero. First, check to be sure the single blue wire is connected. It's on the inboard side of the headlight, and the connection looks like an inline fuse holder. Then turn the headlights on. Using a ballpoint pen so as not to injure your fingers, insert it into one of the holes in the knob atop the motor and turn it clockwise. This should start to raise the headlight. If it doesn't activate and raise upon its own, then it's the relay. If the motor just sits and spins when you turn it on, then it's the gear inside. You can obtain a rebuild kit from www.rodneydickman.com

2003 Hyundai Santa Fe. Problem with driver's side headlight; lowbeam works fine under daytime running. When I flip up for night time driving, the driver's side headlight goes out. Dying bulb or....?


The day time running lamps are the high beam lamps , just going through the DRL resistor . Your low beam bulb could be bad (open) . Check voltage with DVOM - digital volt ohm meter , there should be three wires at the headlamp socket , check the orange wire for battery voltage with low beams on .

My 2000 Toyota Corolla headlights will not turn on during the night, and stay on during the day


Your Corolla has daytime running lights (DRLs). A photocell determines whether it is day or night. Your DRLs turn on automatically in daytime without you operating the light control ("headlight") switch. Your DRLs are actually your headlights on low beam. At night, the photocell senses it is dark and disables the DRLs. When you set the light control ("headlight") switch to HEAD, the head relay closes and the headlights should turn on. Since they don't, I suggest opening the engine room junction block and checking the 40A MAIN fuse and the 10A LEFT HEAD (UPPER) and RIGHT HEAD (UPPER) fuses. In engine room relay block 5, check the 10A LH-LWR HEAD and RH-LWR HEAD fuses. Replace any blown fuses and the headlights should be working normally again

2. ADJUST HEADLIGHT AIM ONLY

(a) Place the vehicle in the following conditions.

 The area around the headlight is not deformed.

 The vehicle is parked on a level surface.

 Tire inflation pressure is the specified value.

 A driver is in the driver's seat and the vehicle is in a state ready for driving (with a tank full).

 The vehicle has been bounced several times.

(b) Check the headlight aiming.

(1) Prepare a thick white paper.

(2) Stand the paper perpendicular to the ground at the position 3 m (9.84 ft) away from the headlights

bulb center.

(3) Ensure that the center line of the vehicle and the paper face forms a 90-degree angle as shown

in the illustration.

(4) Draw a horizontal line (H line) on the paper, showing where the headlights should strike.

(5) Draw a vertical line (V line) at the position where the extended center line of the vehicle strikes.

(6) Draw 2 vertical lines (by connecting the low and high beam center marks) to where the both headlights

should strike (V RH and V LH lines).

(7) Draw a horizontal line (by connecting the both low beam center marks) at the position where the

headlights should strike (H RH and H LH lines).

HINT:

The H RH and H LH line is 0.4° below the horizontal line (H line) of the light axis.

(8) Start the engine.

(9) Turn the headlights ON.

(10) Check that the headlights properly strike the position shown in the illustration.

Low beam headlight are not working. high beams and fogs lamps work fine. is there a fuse for a controller?both low beams stopped working at the same time so i don't think it the fuse for the headlamps.


The problem could be the headlamp switch.
You are right about the fuses.There is one for the LH high/low and one for the RH high/low.
Have you tried turning on the lamps manually with the switch?
