Why don't lights work?


Both the headlight switch and the BCM provide a ground, or control circuit, to the headlight relay coil circuit for manual or automatic headlamp operation. When you place the headlamp switch in the OFF position, and the ambient light sensor indicates low light conditions, the BCM energizes the headlamp relay for low beam operation. You may switch the headlights to high beam by pulling the dimmer switch handle toward you until the dimmer switch is activated. When the dimmer switch is placed in the HIGH position, the indicator lamp input to the BCM is pulled low. The BCM then sends a class 2 message to the instrument cluster in order to illuminate the high beam indicator lamp.

How to replace headlights on 1989 toyota camry


1989 Toyota Camry

A little personal tip - if you get fingermarks on a halogen headlamp, you can wipe them off with rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol) or, if you want to do what mechanics do, keep a number of 2X2 alcohol wipes in your automotive toolbox just to wipe off halogen headlight bulbs.

HEADLAMP REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

Sealed Beam Headlamps

See Figures 2 and 3

Before making a headlight replacement, make sure that the headlight switch is in the off position.

1. Loosen the screws, release the clips and remove the headlight door. To release the clips, insert a flat blade screwdriver into the jaws of the clip and pry on the jaws.

2. Remove the beam unit retaining ring screws and remove the beam unit.

Fig. 2: Headlamp door clip removal

3. Compress the lock releases and disconnect the wire connector from the headlight. If the connector is tight, wiggle it while holding in the lock releases and pulling out.

Fig. 3: Do not remove the adjusting screws when removing the head lamp sealed bulb

Never try to loosen the aim adjusting screws. If the screws are loosened, the headlights will have to be re-aimed by a qualified technician.

4. When installing, use only a sealed beam unit with the same part number and wattage.

Composite Headlamps

See Figures 4, 5 and 6

Fig. 4: Headlight bulbs are inside the sockets located in the engine compartment

Fig. 5: Detach the wiring from the back of the headlamp bulb

This procedure only applies to replaceable halogen headlight bulbs (such as Nos. 9004 and 9005); it does not pertain to sealed beam units.

1. Open the vehicle's hood and secure it in an upright position.

Fig. 6: Twist and pull the bulb out, but do not touch the bulb if it is still good

2. Unfasten the locking ring which secures the bulb and socket assembly, then withdraw the assembly rearward.

3. If necessary, gently pry the socket's retaining clip over the projection on the bulb (use care not to break the clip.) Pull the bulb from the socket.

To install:

4. Before installing a light bulb into the socket, ensure that all electrical contact surfaces are free of corrosion or dirt.

5. Line up the replacement headlight bulb with the socket. Firmly push the bulb onto the socket until the spring clip latches over the bulb's projection.

WARNING
Do not touch the glass bulb with your fingers. Oil from your fingers can severely shorten the life of the bulb. If necessary, wipe off any dirt or oil from the bulb with rubbing alcohol before completing installation.

6. To ensure that the replacement bulb functions properly, activate the applicable switch to illuminate the bulb which was just replaced. (If this is a combination low and high beam bulb, be sure to check both intensities.) If the replacement light bulb does not illuminate, either it too is faulty or there is a problem in the bulb circuit or switch. Correct if necessary.

7. Position the headlight bulb and secure it with the locking ring.

8. Close the vehicle's hood.

How do i change headlamp bulbs


Changing the headlight bulb is a little bitdifficult for those not familiar with the vehicle. Both the high and low beamsare encased in a sealed unit, which also contains the turn signal, parkinglights, and side reflector. To change a single headlight, the entire headlightcompartment must be removed from the car. Once you understand how to remove thesealed headlight unit from the car, replacing the bulb is relatively simple.Follow the steps below on how to change the headlamp bulb in this car. Removal 1. Open the hood of the Jeep and locate thelong, headlamp jackscrew. The screw is located almost directly above theheadlight unit and can be removed using a 7-mm socket wrench. This will allowyou to remove the bezel from the grill opening panel. Remove the three screwsattached to the retaining ring to the headlight console. The screws are locatedon the bottom front and side of the unit. In some models the screws have beenreplaced with ball-stud alignment posts, enabling you to remove the headlightunit by simply wiggling it loose. 3. Disconnect the headlamp bulb wireharness connector located at the front of the headlight unit. This is locateddirectly above and between the parking and turning bulbs. 4. Separate the sealed headlight unit fromthe vehicle; disconnect and replace the old bulb. The high beam is locatedtoward the center of the car. The low beam is the bulb on the outermost edge ofthe unit. This is how to Install 1. Reconnect the headlamp bulb's wireharness-connector. Then Replace the headlight unit in the headlight canister. Positionthe retaining ring back in its original position and install the three screwsagain. If you wiggled the unit out, ensure that it is replaced firmly. 2. Install the headlamp bezel by replacingthe 7-mm jackscrew on the inside of the hood. Make sure all connections aretight before starting the car and inspecting the replacement.

Trying to put the headlight assembly in


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. On cars with pop-up or retracting headlamps, turn the ignition switch OFF. Operate the retractor switch on the dash to bring the headlight doors up. The headlights should be off when the doors are up.
  2. Remove the headlight bezel (trim).

Remove the screws securing the headlight bezel

  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 should be in identical aim to the old one.
  2. Using a small screwdriver (preferably magnetic) and a pair of needle-nose pliers if necessary, remove the small screws in the headlamp retainer.

Remove the screws securing the retaining ring. Be sure not to disturb the adjusting screws

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.

... then unplug the connector from the back of the lamp. Be sure to transfer the rubber boot to the new lamp

To install:
  1. Place the new headlamp in position and connect the wiring harness. Remember to install the rubber boot on the back of the new lamp. Also, make sure the headlight is right-side up.
  2. Have an assistant turn on the headlights and check the new lamp for proper function, checking both high and low beams before final assembly.
  3. Install the retainer and the small screws that secure it.
  4. Reinstall the headlight trim
