Question about 2000 Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

Headlights not working, fuses good...

My daughter's 98 Geo Prism/Toyota Corolla has a headlight problem. The headlights don't work at all. The daytime lights will work for a few seconds, then quit too. Fuses are good. I have a similar problem. The headlights on my 2000 Toyota Corolla stopped working. After trying several things and reading this website I changed the headlights relay. The headlights came on...for ten minutes. Then I heard the click sound and the headlights went off again. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

    Well...Later I realized the lights turned off because it got dark outside. Now the lights are working during the day and off at night. I am temporarily working around that by pointing a flashlight at the sensor while driving to keep the lights on at night.

SOURCE: Headlights not working, fuses good...

I had the same problem with my '98 corolla... It was the headlight relay.. I just had to push it in and both lights worked fine... There are 2 relays - both under the hood... The first one is located all the way in the front of the car, right by the left headlight (when you are standing infront of the car)... The second one is located inside of the fuse/relay box (above the driver tire)...The relay looks brown in color, rectangle shaped ... Just try to clean it out and plug it back in...if it doesn't work, try replacing it... For me, I just cleand it and plugged it back in and every thing worked fine...

Tail, side and dash board lights not working

Not totally positive but I believe on your Toyota there are two places that fuses are located. You stated that all fuses under the bonnet are fine and I assume that means under the hood. The other place to check for a blown fuse would be under the dash instrument panel usually located directly above where your left knee would be while sitting in the drivers seat. Hope this is of some help. Good. Luck.

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

My 98 Toyota corolla's headlights on low or high

hello, it could be ground connection issue, carefully check under the dash at the left side there is a ground bus point, it's a the end of a insulated harness which may be taped to the other harness, all white black wires terminate at the end plug connector, there is a cap on the end, it's a white connector with a bunch of wires going into it, all white/black, remove the cap there may be some corrosion inside, all these wires must be grounded if they are not then make new ground connections to the body. a couple of the wires are grounded and the others get ground from them, however you do it doesn't matter as long as all are grounded. Also take a look at the fuse box inside there may be some wires that look overheated which is a sure sign of bad grounds in the DRL and lighting system,

Dash and tail lights stopped working on my daughters 1991 toyota celica gt. the fuse has been checked and replaced. it was ok. the headlights were recently changed. is it true the dash and tail lights run...

If the tail lights and the dash lights stopped working and the tail light and the panel lighting fuses are both o.k. and you can find no other blown fuses then the problem is most likely the headlight switch.
