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

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

I'm trying to replace the tail lights on my motor home which is built on a for econoline chasis (1988) when I took the old ones off a lot of the wires were pulled out of the assembly or just rusted off. ...


Reconnecting a 7 wire circuit.....I presume you have located the rear JUNCTION BOX, or HARNESS splice.... At the lights wiring.
1. YELLOW = LH Turn signal
2. RED= STOP Lights
3. WHITE= Ground
4. BLACK= LH Tail Light/# plate lamp
5. BLUE [If available] Auxiliary Power Supply
6. GREEN= RH Turn signal
7.BROWN=RH Tail Lights
Depending on style you may find that the LH and RH Tail lamp colours are the same.[ie] Both Brown or both Black.
Best of luck in your endevours.
Regards DT
