2000 T4R headlight relay location

I have a few electrical symptoms developing in my 2000 T4R. One headlight will not light on low beams, but high beams work both sides. Where is the headlight relay located for this year?

SOURCE: no driving or high beam headlights

Hi,

To my knowledge a 2003 Toyota Camry uses a dual filament halogen bulb, either by Osram, Philips or Sylavania. If on the dashboard, the blue indicator lits when the switch is moved to bright or the passlight is engaged but no headlight, then it could jut be busted bulb (or part of it since you still have driving/low beam). In some cases, it could be the relay that supplies power direct to the bulb. At other times, it could be fuse(s) assigned to high beam. At certain instances, it could be also a loose, corroded or burned connector.

Corrective measure for your concern would be to check the 2 bulbs. This is performed by removing the rear covering (rubber or plastic cap) of the headlight assembly from the rear. The bulbs are held in place by a spring clip that needs to be unlatched from the base/holder. Carefully remove the bulb taking care not to touch the glass envelope. The filaments would be readily visible and cut/breaks would be apparent. If determined that one of the filaments (high beam) is open, replace the bulb(s).

If the bulbs prove to be OK, you need to work yourself backwards tracing the wiring harness. After the bulb, check the 3 prong connector for any corrosion or scorching/burnt marks; clean as maybe required. Next to check would be the relay that provides the +12VDC and then the fuse.

I doubt if the dashboard or steering wheel components involve with headlights may be at fault.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

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.....

Headlights not working on 2003 alero/all other lights working/checked fuse and changed relay


Here is how they are suppose to work .
Headlamps
The headlamps may be turned on two different ways. First, when the driver places the headlamp switch in the HEADLAMP position, for normal operation. Second, with the headlamp switch placed in the OFF position, for automatic lamp control (ALC). During ALC, the headlamps will be in day time running lamp (DRL) operation in daylight conditions, or low beam operation in low light conditions. The LH HDLPand RH HDLP fuses, supply battery positive voltage from the underhood junction block to the left and right headlamps. The circuit continues through both low and high beam lamps, then back to the underhood junction block. The low beam and high beam circuits continue to the headlamp switch. 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 switch and the flash-to-pass switch. When the headlamp switch is placed in the HEADLAMP position a path to ground is provided. Ground is provided at G201. Depending on the position of the high/low beam switch, either the low or high beam circuit will now have power and ground.
The LH HDLP fuse in the underhood junction block, supplies battery positive voltage to the automatic lamp control (ALC) headlamp relay coil circuit. The ALC relay switch circuit is connected to the low beam circuit at the headlamp switch. When the headlamp switch is placed in the OFF position, the BCM will automatically turn on the low beams in low light conditions. The BCM energizes the ALC relay, closing the switch contacts and grounding the low beam circuit. Ground is provided at G201. With the headlights in the low beam position, the high beams may be momentarily turned on or flashed with the dimmer switch handle. The flash-to-pass feature is accomplished by pulling the dimmer switch handle toward the driver. The headlights may be switched to high beam with the opposite movement of the dimmer switch lever. When the headlamp dimmer switch handle is pulled toward the driver, the flash-to-pass switch closes grounding the high beam circuit. Ground is provided at G201. Both high beams will remain on until the driver releases the switch handle.
If the driver places the headlight switch in the HEADLAMP position , the headlights will remain on until turned off or the battery runs dead.

Finding a wiring diagram to use along with a DMM - digital multi-meter (voltmeter ) To test the electrical circuits for the headlamps B+ power & ground side of the circuit is the way to find a fix .

Where is the low beam relay switch located


Replace any blown fuses, and check or replace the head light relay.

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.

My low beam headlights do not work as daytime running lights or manually with the headlight knob pulled out . The high beam headlights however do work if I have the knob pulled out all the way with the...


Check out your fuse associate with the low beam headlight, secondly there is a relay fuse under fuse rely box under the hoos. Locate this box, and locate the relay fuse associated to the low beam. You can rotate the relay with another relay of the same spec to see if the low beam lights are coming on. I would believe that it is a fuse that is blown, check your owners manaual on the location of the fuse box. Usually it's located in the driver side kick panel.

Headlights went out. Replaced bulbs and switch and still lights don't work. Fog lights and high beams work? What else can work?


If high beams work and low beams do not, then it is probably the high/low relay. It is part number 15016745 and has four prongs. To test if your relay has gone bad locate the relay in your fuse box. There will be two of these relays located next to each other. One controls the low beam headlights and the other the cooling fan. Swap the relays and check your low beam headlights. If the low beams work you have a bad relay.

No head light high and low beam fuse is good


You have to check the headlight switch, and headlight relay, as these are the only two components that control both high and low beam headlights. You should hear a slight click from the control stalk switch as you turn it, and then you should hear a faint relay click from elsewhere a fraction of a second afterwards.

Also, if this is a car with daytime running lights, the Honda DRL modules are known to develop thermal cracks in the solder on their relays; this is an easy fix for anyone with simple electrical repair experience. This will often start as an intermittent problem and gradually worsen.

Followup with more detail if you check the above.

The low beam lights do not work I have tried a new bulb and replacing the fuses. the high beam lights do work


You may have to check a few items here. Do the high beam lights only work when you "flash" from the combination stalk or do they work when you have headlight switch turned on and then select high beam from stalk..? You may also want to check out the headlight relay. If this is OK, you might have a headlight switch issue or the combination stalk may be faulty.

Relay box location. there is a problem with the drivers and pasangers window wont go up or down and the head lights dont work but the side lights will. therefore i think its the hrad lights


Fuse for window regulator (circuit breaker) on 13 position auxiliary relay panel. The wiring connectors are located at the lower left and right side kick panels. The auxiliary relay panel is located above the lower kick panel above the pedals.

Headlight fuse location:
#18 High beam right 10A
#19 High beam left 10A
#20 Low beam right 15A
#21 Low beam left 15A

Daytime running light relay location on upper (auxiliary) relay panel. This are the only ones using relays regarding your question.

From April 1999
Position 7, Relay #173

Through March 1999
Position 8, Relay #173
