get a boost... sounds like the battery is run down.... if you want to test that theory... have someone try and start the car while you check hte voltage on the battery.... it may well even need replacement

SOURCE: Low beam headlights don't work

The problem is in the high beam switch assembly which also houses your turn signals and possibly cruise control, and yes, I'm sure. There are some electrical contacts in the assembly which dis-connect the low beams when you put the high beams on. Constant use of the high beam switch will create arcing on the low beam switch which makes the contacts not conduct electricity anymore. The daytime running lights send power to the low beams on a separate circuit. .

The repair is to either replace the assembly, $300 at dealer, $100 or less do it yourself, or take the assembly apart and clean it for free. (2 hours or less)

P.S. If you own a VW, especially around model years 1999 to 2004, there is a rare but devastating problem with engine coolant being literally pumped through all electrical parts of your car.... destroying it. Repair cost = $8,000. It is called coolant migration. Check your VW right now (takes two seconds, literally), and do a two-minute procedure to fix your car to prevent the problem here: http://www.myturbodiesel.com/1000q/multi/coolant_migration.htm

Hi I have a 2002 Mazda 323 Protege and I'm trying to put spotlights on but I can't work out where to get the power from the high beam. Can someone please help. Thanks.


Spotlights or more correctly auxilliary driving lights should be fitted in accordance with prevailing construction and use regulations that mostly require such lights to be fitted above the bumper line and not be placed too close together. They should be aimed as if they are headlights and be wired so they only illuminate when main or high headlamp beam is selected.

The lamps should be supplied with a fused supply direct from the vehicle battery and switched by a good quality relay with a current rating substantially more than the current drawn by the lamps. Use a heavier gauge of cable than required for both the supply and ground. Keep the wires sensibly short and neat so it looks like they are meant to be there.

The switching supply is taken from any convenient point in the supply to either headlamp main beam. These days that small task is not easy and will usually require splicing into the cable once the correct wire has been identified using a circuit diagram and/or a test lamp.
Carefully remove half an inch of insulation from the headlight supply cable and then wrap the conductor of the relay wire around it several times, secure with solder and then carefully and neatly waterproof and insulate the splice with pvc tape and secure it from unwinding over the coming years with a tiny nylon cable tie.

Good luck!

Need headlight wiring diagram for 2013 Kia Rio,want to fit spotlights


you will have to fit a relay into the system. Tap a wire into the high beam power wire for the headlights. (Piggy back connection) take this wire down to the fitted relay to a coil pin on the relay. connect a wire to the other coil pin of the relay and return to the dash area to an control switch through it then to an earth point.. Run a wire to an inline fuse directly from the battery ( fuse close to the battery as it is a high current line) down to one pin of the relay. connect up the power wire for the light to the opposite pin on the relay and connect the earth wire of the light to an earth point

According to road regulations you cannot have spot lights on by them selves and they must only operate in conjunction with high beam operation.. The setup as I describe allows you control of when the spotlights will be on ( switch in the dash) and if on will be extinguished when low beam is selected as per regulations. The relay ensures that the trigger wires do not carry full light amperage so light gauge wires can be used and only the power wire from the battery to the relay to the light need to be heavier gauge.

Low beams not working but high beams are on a 2000 chevy metro


The headlight relay provides power to the dimmer relay, then power goes thru a fuse for each light for each circuit (4). The low beam fuses are in fuse block 2. The dimmer relay is controlled by the daytime running light module. The headlight and dimmer switches send signals to the DRL module. You may need a shop manual to troubleshoot the circuits.

Spotlight wiring in landcruiser


I would just tie into the high beam wiring at the factory lights, wire them into a relay and go from there. I wouldn't even consider adding into the high beam system without a relay. You may also want to consider a switch so you can shut them off if you found yourself in a position where you want your factory highbeams but not the extra's. Good luck and have fun :)

Fitted a set of anti-roo spotlights on my wife's car. However, trying to get a signal to the relay via an on/off switch in the dash from the high beam, the wires all seemed to be hot at some stage


Yes First, you may be able to get a FREE diagram from Autozone.com by registering your car. Foreign cars a little less likely.

When you look at a Relay there are several terminals. While conventional thought is that a Relay just interrupts a wire and breaks connection, the Reality is that both Positive and Negative wires tie in several Relays.

For instance, a Positive terminal in a Relay engages and it moves a pair of connections inside the Relay. But another Relay is lacking a Negative Pulse to engage its connection. The first Relay activates and then makes a connection supplying a Negative or grounding charge.

So the way you are wired, you are providing a ground to a KeyOFF terminal. Now it completes the circuit to light. When the KeyON Relay is activated, it toggles the Circuit and breaks the connection.

What you want to do is add an external light relay. Think of it like a starter Relay. A small tickler wire connects those massive battery cables to the starter. But only when the ignition is turned to start.

Use the tickler wire to activate the external Relay. Tie the tickler to the high beams so when the highs are on, the added Roo lights will work too.

Remember to fuse the hot side to the relay from the battery. That way you can lose the added lights but not the factory lights in the event a fuse breaks.

I hope my solution helps you.

Adjusting headlights in 1996-2000 rav 4


The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.
