Question about 1992 Toyota Corolla

Bright Beams won't come on

Several months ago the bright beams stopped coming on in my 1992 Corolla when I depress the bright beam switch on the steering column. The blue light comes on the dash, but the beams don't come on - the low beams go off when I depress the bright beam switch therefore I would have no working headlights if I depress the bright beam switch. I searched this site and saw that I should check the passenger side headlight bulb to make sure the elements were in tact - they were. I also changed both bulbs with several other bulbs and the problem still exists--it does not appear to be the light bulbs. I looked at the fuse block under the hood and saw there is a head light relay and some 10 amp fuses. The fuses are good. I interchanged the fan relay (sits beside the head light relay and has the same part number on the side) and still no fix. Any other ideas?

Hi mjernigan002

The first thing you should also check is whether with the bright beam on (meaning turn them on). Check for voltage at the wires where the bulb goes. Also you made sure not to touch to bulbs with your hands, correct? As the oil from your hands can ruin the bulb if you touch the glass.

Let me know if you find any voltage or not, if not then keep back tracking until you do, you may need to rewire the lights.

You did a great job of checking over the problem areas and at this point its looking to me like a bad wire connection somwhere in the wire path to the high beam switch!

Two possible soluitions... it's not totally unheard of that one may have burned out without you noticing... and finally the other has burnt out leaving you with no high beams... the other is to locate the relay for the headlights.... usually located in the fuse panel in the engine compartment and replace the relay

High Beams Great. Low Beams very dim. All new ultra bright bulbs and new headlight assemblies. What can I do to have safe low beams?


You need to check voltages at the headlight connection and see what they are. If they are low then check the wires for bad ground connections, check the relay

Is there any fuses or relays that are not in the fuse box on a 2002 buick rendezvousfor the bright lights


The high and low beam lights use the same power source, so if the low beams work the high beams have power.
There is a low and high beam relay controlled by the dimmer switch.
If the low beams work and the high beams don't, and the bulbs are good, check the dimmer switch and the high beam relay.

Does this model use a 4 headlight bright system? I have 2 low beam lights but when I put on the bright lights the 2 low beam lights go out and only the 2 bright lights stay on.


I think that many 1990s and even some 1980s GM vehicles with seemingly 4 headlight systems actually use only 2 at a time.

My 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais, for instance, had 2 high beams that went on independently of the 2 low beam lights when switched with the turn signal lever.

In the 1970s the GM vehicles had 4 headlight systems where all 4 headlights would go on, but they used sealed beams rather than the capsule lights that are used nowadays.

For instance, our 1976 Cadillac Seville has a 4 headlight system that lights up 4 headlights on the high beam mode.

Good luck on seeing at night with the current set up.

My bright light indicater is working, but I don't have any bright lights?


So, when u turn on the high-beams, the indicator light goes on, but u still have low beam headlights only? Check the headlight (either one), and see if by chance both high beams burned out at approx. the same time. U don't specify what year, I'm not sure if u have a replacement bulb, or a sealed beam headlight to replace. If the high beams are both ok, then it must be the headlight high beam switch. Let me know what u find.
