Does the engine crank and not start or does it not turn over at all? You likely have an ignition problem either pointing to the distributor ignition module.

Hi Geordan, Sounds to me as if you have a problem with a sticking head lamp relay. Replace it and the problem should be solved. Regards John

Want to replace the dual headlight bulb (lo/hi beam) in my 1999 TOYOTA COROLLA....NOT SURE WHERE TO START...CAN ANYONE HELP??? THANKS DAVE

Raise the hood and look at the rear of the headlight asembly and you should see the plug for the light.That needs to be unplugged then spin the lock off the bulb and pull out the bulb.There is almost always something in the way that needs to be removed first but that should get you started.

Headlights go off and on while engine is on or off

I would start by checking/cleaning the connections in the headlight circuit. Poor connections will create resistance in the circuit, causing heat which can melt wiring and connectors. Hope this helps!

You should try checking the fuel pressure to see if it too low. If the pump sat for a long time like that and then was turned on for awhile it may have bought the farm. It may still be pumping, but just not enough. Try givng it a compression check as well just to see if it has any problems there.
