Question about 1998 Toyota Corolla
Have power to the bulbs & bulbs r good. Lights go on when starting the vehicle but click off after 6 sec. Headlight will not go on in the light position. Everything else works.
That click tends to tell me it's a relay... if you can hear it... it's probably located on the fuse panel.... locate the one for the lights affected and replace it.

[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

2. ADJUST HEADLIGHT AIM ONLY
(a) Place the vehicle in the following conditions.
The area around the headlight is not deformed.
The vehicle is parked on a level surface.
Tire inflation pressure is the specified value.
A driver is in the driver's seat and the vehicle is in a state ready for driving (with a tank full).
The vehicle has been bounced several times.
(b) Check the headlight aiming.
(1) Prepare a thick white paper.
(2) Stand the paper perpendicular to the ground at the position 3 m (9.84 ft) away from the headlights
(3) Ensure that the center line of the vehicle and the paper face forms a 90-degree angle as shown
in the illustration.
(4) Draw a horizontal line (H line) on the paper, showing where the headlights should strike.
(5) Draw a vertical line (V line) at the position where the extended center line of the vehicle strikes.
(6) Draw 2 vertical lines (by connecting the low and high beam center marks) to where the both headlights
should strike (V RH and V LH lines).
(7) Draw a horizontal line (by connecting the both low beam center marks) at the position where the
headlights should strike (H RH and H LH lines).
The H RH and H LH line is 0.4° below the horizontal line (H line) of the light axis.
(8) Start the engine.
(9) Turn the headlights ON.
(10) Check that the headlights properly strike the position shown in the illustration.
