SOURCE: I need to replace the headlight on my 1994 Toyota Pickup

CAUTION Most headlight retaining rings and trim bezels have very sharp edges. Wear gloves. Never pry or push on a headlamp; it can shatter suddenly.

  1. Make sure the headlight switch is in the off position.
  2. Loosen the parking and side turn signal unit retaining screws. Then remove the units unplugging the connectors.



0900c15280061083.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Fig. 1: After removing the parking lamp screws, push on the grille clips to release the grille from the truck
  1. Next, open the hood to gain access to the grille clips. Using a flat-bladded tool, push on the clips to release them and the grille.



0900c15280061084.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Fig. 2: Remove the grille from the truck and set aside
  1. The sealed beam is held in place by a retainer and either 2 or 4 small screws. Identify these screws before applying any tools.DO NOT confuse the small retaining screws with the larger aiming screws. There will be two aiming screws or adjustors for each lamp. (One adjustor controls the up/down motion and the other controls the left/right motion.) Identify the adjustors and avoid them during removal. If they are not disturbed, the new headlamp will be in identical aim to the old one.



0900c15280061085.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Fig. 3: Remove the headlight bezel which is secured by screws
  1. Using a small screwdriver (preferably magnetic) and a pair of taper-nose pliers if necessary, remove the small screws in the headlamp retainer. DON'T drop the screws; they vanish into unknown locations.



0900c15280061086.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Fig. 4: Be careful when removing the headlight bezels, they can be sharp
A good kitchen or household magnet placed on the shank of the screwdriver will provide enough grip to hold the screw during removal.
  1. Remove the retainer and the headlamp may be gently pulled free from its mounts. Detach the connector from the back of the sealed beam unit and remove the unit from the car.

Try changing out your turn signal flasher.it might be under your dash by your fuse box.Some trucks have two one for turn signals one for 4 way flashers.By all means check the fuse first.

if the starter is not making any noise then try tapping the starter while someone tries to start it.if the car turns over then you have a bad spot in the starter and will have to be replaced.

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

Where is the headlight flasher relay located on a 1981 toyota pickup


If there is a relay, it's probably inside the switch. Your headlights have fuses, both left and right (my '87 celica does). If they are good, and bulbs aren't burnt out, then probably the switch is bad.

Replacing headlight on 1989 Toyota


if the turn signal cover is loose, and you are not really sure and dont want to break yours, visit your local junk yard and try the exact same thing there. But you could always try a rag and a flat head screwdriver, use the rag to cover the screwdriver and gently pry the turn signal lens out from the back of the housing. Usually the rubber grommets have just gotten old with age and weather. have you tried removing your headlight? although rare, somethimes the headlights need to come out first with certain models.

The headlights on my 1981 dolphin motorhome stopped working, brake,blinker & parking lights still work & fuses are ok,


The headlight are hook up in a series circuit. Did you check the fuse--headlights are on a separate circuit. There could be broken wire. faulty fuse. Faulty connection in the fuse panel considering that head lights pull large amount of current for operations.

When troubleshooting wiring circuits. Start at the switch and see if you have voltage to it, if not, then check the fuse. Check the plug connect on the fire wall to see if there is continuity or voltage. If you have corrosion in the plug clean them then use a good quality dielectric grease to seal the plug connection.

Also check the Head Light Bulb and see if there are burn out. Simpler things than this as happen. stewbison.

89 toyota pickup electrical problems


Sounds like you have an intermittent electrical problem. Check your positive battery wire going into your fuse box the connection becomes loose. I have seen 2 or 3 Toyota pickups have the a similar problem. Also check Battery connections and the ground cable.

If your pickup has a loose battery cables and/or wires it can not charge to it full potential no matter how new your alternator or your battery. Try turning on your head lights and wiggling your battery wires if the lights go dim or flicker, chances are that wire is loose or has a bad connection.

Headlight installation 1986 Toyota pickup. How do you take off the headlight housing?


You must first, remove the grill on the front of the car. Above the bumper. It has very fragile clips, they have two tabs each, you must line them up with the small slots. Then pull the grill off. Then use a Philip screw driver to unscrew the head light hold down covers then pull the light out and unplug the three wire plug.
