Low beam lights not working right on 01 celica GTS???

This is strange both my low beam lights function during the daytime. I can turn them on or off. However at night they won't come on at all. I figure it is something with the sensor, not sure though. I don't know much about cars. I had the alternator and battery tested at a Auto Zone and they are fine. Any suggestions to as why my low beams are not working at night and how can I fix the problem?

SOURCE: LOW BEAM LIGHTS

Hi Rich Million,

Check the bulbs for the low beam problem and if they're ok, check the fuses under the bonnet (hood) which are found in the fuse box. If you've already checked those, go to the fuse box inside the vehicle.

Still no luck....remember that there are fuses and relays inside the cabin behind the kick panel.....You may find that there is a problem with the main fuse box.....If you drive over rough terrain, check the connections under the main fuse box....even if your roads are all smooth, it's still worth checking.....

SOURCE: Low beam headlights don't work

I have e-mailed you 2 .pdf files, one is the complete headlamp diagram, and the other is the relay locations. Please advise if you need further assistance.

SOURCE: headlights alternate on and off left and right daytime/high beam

although the underhood relay panel is common, I'd check your headlamp bulbs first, these are cheaper than the fuse box. The daytime running lights work off the high beam circuit, thus, a blown highbeam bulb could be the culprit, the fusebox solution was more common on 2001 and up modles, although it's a definite possibility.

I have a 2003 Ford F-1150 XLT and was told it had DRL, but no lights visible unless headlights are turned on. Did all 203 F-150 models have DRL? If so, what might be the cause of these not working?


Who told you it has daytime running lamps ? Dealer ?
Principles of Operation
The daytime running lamps (DRL) are implemented by using the low beams at a reduced voltage of approximately 80% system voltage. This is accomplished by inserting a DRL resistor (14A601) in series with the low beam filaments. When the headlamp switch (11654) is engaged, the daytime running lamp function is disabled and the low beam filaments receive 100% system voltage.

  1. Verify the customer concern by operating the system.
  1. Visually inspect for obvious signs of electrical damage.


Visual Inspection Chart Electrical
  • Blown battery junction box (BJB) Fuse 9 (15A)
  • Damaged wiring harness
  • Damaged DRL relays
  • Damaged DRL resistor

  1. If an obvious cause for an observed or reported concern is found, correct the cause (if possible) before proceeding to the next step.
  1. If the concern is not visually evident, verify the symptom and refer to the Symptom Chart
PINPOINT TEST A: THE DAYTIME RUNNING LAMPS ARE INOPERATIVE CONDITIONS DETAILS/RESULTS/ACTIONS A1 VERIFY THE LOW BEAMS OPERATE CORRECTLY Turn the headlamp switch to the headlamps ON position. Verify the multifunction switch (13K359) is in the low beam position.
  • Do the low beams operate correctly?
Yes TURN the headlamp switch to the OFF position. GO to A2 .

No REFER to Section 417-01 . A2 CHECK DRL RELAY NO. 1 GROUND CIRCUIT
DRL Relay No. 1
Measure the resistance between DRL Relay No. 1, Pin 1, Circuit 57 (BK), harness side and ground.
  • Is the resistance less than 5 ohms?
Yes GO to A3 .

No

2003 sunfire ..... low beams were working one minute ,shut off car for two minutes got back in car started it ,now i have no low beams or fogs.i checked bulbs and fuses both are good , could it be the DRL...


Headlamps
The headlamps are operated when the driver places the headlamp switch in the HEADLAMP position. The LT HDLP and RT HDLP fuse in the IP fuse block, supply battery positive voltage to both the left and right headlamps. The low beam and high beam circuits continue to the headlamp switch. Depending on the position of the dimmer switch, either the low or high beam circuit will now have a path to ground. Ground is provided at G204. The low beam and high beam circuits also provide the body control module (BCM) with both low and high beam inputs. The headlamp switch includes the dimmer and the flash-to-pass switch.
If the headlight switch is left in the HEADLAMP position, the headlights will remain on until turned off or the battery runs dead.
Daytime Running Lamps (DRL)
Any function that turns on the headlights will cancel the daytime running lamps operation. The LT HDLP fuse in the IP fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to the daytime running lamp (DRL) relay coil circuit. The DRL relay switch contacts are connected to the low beam circuit. When the headlamp switch is placed in the OFF position, the BCM will turn on the daytime running lamps. The BCM energizes the DRL relay, closing the switch contacts and grounding the low beam circuit at G204. The DRL illuminate the low beam headlights at a reduced intensity. The DRL will operate when the ignition switch is in the RUN position, the gear selector is not in the PARK position and the parking brake is released. When these conditions have been met the DRL will illuminate.
DRL operation in Manual Transmission equipped vehicles will occur when the ignition switch is in the RUN position, and the parking brake is released.

Probably the dimmer switch . But without testing that would be just a guess . Turnning the headlamps on Any function that turns on the headlights will cancel the daytime running lamps operation..
No ,don't think the DRL relay has anything to do with it .

View wiring diagrams an testing the electrical circuits at the dimmer switch would be the proper way to diagnose .

2000 Toyota Celica GTS headlights out


The globes filament for low beam are most likely both blown . Check if the plug is getting voltage when the low beam is on or buy a replacement globe and check if this is the case.
How do you know both low beams stopped at the same time ?
They most likely blown at different times but you notice it when both go out and you have zero light. Had this happen to me on a ford falcon EA . Was the globes.
Try not to handle the glass on the replacement globes if Halcyon globes .

Auto lighting of daytime running (low beam) lamps


Yes. These are called DRL's or daytime running lights. It is law that vehicles manufactured after 1985 must have low amperage lighting on while running.

04 chev optra i have no daytime running lights and no low beam but the high beam works i have swaped fuses and new bulbs what else can it be


I have a similar problem with my 2005 Optra 5 - daytime running lights are hit/miss. About 3-4 years ago, the alarm started activating itself - FREQUENTLY. Turns out it was corroded wires. Now this. (Take heart - my Corolla had a similar problem - bad sockets - bulbs burned out faster than they could be replaced. Toyota never did admit responsibility.)

Low beam failure would lead to reduced visibility during hours of darkness. DRL failure may render the vehicle less visible to other motorists and pedestrians during daylight hours. Both cases could lead to a vehicle crash with injury or death. Correction: Dealers will add a direct connection splice clip to the headlamp low beam circuit in order to bypass the faulty connector.
