    I've got a 2006 Corolla with a remote start hooked up. All the fuses are ok and the tail lamp relay (controls the tail lights, parking lights, instrument cluster lights) is ok because i replaced it with an identical relay. I've also tryed clearing the memory in the ecu by disconnecting the battery and pushing on the brake pedal. Parking and tail lights only stay on if you manually turn the parking or headlights on. Any help would be greatly appreciated because the only way to turn the parking/tail/instrument cluster lights off once they're on is to disconnect the battery.

DRL module likely burned out. Just left of glove box latch hidden. Clean your battery terminals. I hacked my burned one with a single jumper wire from the only constant hot power input (greenish if I remember right, third pin over from one side) to its closest neighbor connection on the board (or the big solder ground anchor blobs) and pulled the high beam light bulb because that then stays on. Lights are now off, system finally hacked OK except for no high beam indicator. (Hi beams, lights all still work by the switch.) I haven't checked if lights are on automatically during the day yet.

Most likely a bad headlamp switch, UNLESS you have a remote starter hooked up. Corollas with a body computer really do not like remote starters, they cause really bizaare things to happen.

Dashboard lights - 2001 toyota corolla

May not be any fuse and if it was other things would not work either. It is most likely the sitch that controls the running and dash board lights.

I have 98 toyota corolla ce and the headlights stay on everytime i turn the engine question is how can i turn them off in the daytime???

In Canada it's mandatory to have DRL(Daytime Running Lights). Your Corolla probably has this feature built in. it is a safety thing however I can understand you wanting them off if it's not the law where you live.
In our 1998 Corolla, I use the parking brake all the time - every time I park - and I've noticed the lights do not come on until I release the parking brake after starting the motor. When I park the car, until I shut off the engine, the lights stay on regardless of the parking brake status however, if I shut off the engine and restart with the parking brake on, the lights do not come on.
If you "adjust' the parking brake switch(i.e.: make e-brake light in your dash it stay on all the time) your lights will not go on until you turn them on via the multifunction lever(left side of wheel). This of course negates the benefits of the e-brake light working correctly (warning you that your e-brake is on or that your brake fluid level is low) which in itself is not so safe!
There is a fuse/relay (I think) in the big fusebox under the hood that has a DRL "spot", you might want to check if you can remove it and still turn the lights on manually when you want them on. Alternately, there is a fuse in the interior fuse box(in Canadian models anyway) labelled DRL. When that fuse is out, it seems the lights only turn ob when I turn them on manually.
Hope this helps and God bless,

I have a 2001 Corolla...both headlights went out at the same time randomly. (parking and brake lights work fine)...? Fuse or bulbs or ?????

Fuse or relay. Check the fuses under the hood. The one you are looking for is labeled HEAD, generally.

i hope this helps,

1999 Toyota Corolla Seca - hatchback. the tail

If you put your foot on the brake, the tail lights and parking lights will still come on. Possibly your brake is sticking. Check to see if it is and if it is put WD40 for a quick fix. See a tech for them to fix your brake alignment. Good Luck!
