Sounds like a loose connection or damp either way I would go to the garage.

Hid drl's not working


DRLs generally run at lower power than regular lights by cycling on and off rapidly. DRL's are probably not compatible with your HID kit. Pull the DRL fuse, they are not required by law in the US,

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?

Hi, Have an 88 Olds Cutlass Ciera. High beams come on, but won't stay on more then 10 seconds. Low beamd did work, but now flash on and off. This may or may not be related. Short in tail light , the fuse...


MOST VEHICLES HAVE A CIRCUIT BREAKER BUILT IN THE HEADLIGHT SWITCH. OVER TIME THE CIRCUIT BREAKER WILL GET WEAK & IT WILL TURN THE HEADLIGHTS ON & OFF. YOU PROBABLY NEED A NEW SWITCH & THE FUSE BLOWING IN THE TAIL LIGHT CIRCUIT MAY BE A SEPARATE ISSUE.

Head lights won't work. drl and high beams work


Check for sure, that both bulbs haven't somehow (unlikely, I know) blown out. If they are both fine, it could be the headlight switch. Another possibility, there was a recall recently for the headlights due to the splices not staying together, causing the regular headlights to not function. This recall affected over 90,0000 Suzukis of different model years. Hope this helps, sorry I couldn't give you anything concrete

The daytime running lights on my 2003 Ford Escape flicker


you may have a headlight switch going weak because it does have a circuit breaker in it.or the switch itself is heating up.or a bad ground.
