2002 Highlander headlight keeps blowing fuse

I have a 2002 Highlander with the passenger side headlight out. I installed a new bulb and then realized that the fuse was blown. I left the new bulb in and replaced the fuse. As soon as I turned my lights on the new fuse blew immediately. Put in another fuse and it did it again. I did put in the correct amp fuse and the correct bulb. Any suggestions?

In the Fuse Relay Box under the Hood there is a Headlight Relay. Replace this Relay along with a New Fuse and it should work. Let me Know. Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help That I can Get! Thanks!

    That answer is very helpful but which fuse controls that headlight and which is the headlight relay? The owner's manual isn't very specific.
    Thank you!

Possible bad relay or bad ground. Try tapping the relay with helper watching to see if light flashes.

2003 altima headlight fuse keeps blowing on passenger side


The most likely cause would be a wire chaffed through and shorting out on the body. Pull the plug in off the light and start tracing it back looking for a bare spot. Tape it up with electrical tape and try to re-route it so this doesn't occur again. Hope this helps.

How to remove passenger headlights


Usually on newer cars you don't have to remove headlights to change bulb they come out the back. Look where the wires go in back and turn counter clockwise and it will come out in youre hand. Pretty easy.

My 2002 toyota highlander has good air flow, however when the airconditioner is operating, one side (passenger) blows cold air but the drivers side blows ambient air.


You might wish to check the diverter box to make sure that it's blowing the right air in the right places. Also, check the dash ductwork-they like to split.

My 2002 Highlander passenger side brake lights are not working. I replaced the bulbs already. Could it be the socket that holds the bulb?


what about the courtesy lights fuse? or maybe your blinker switch? you might have a broken wire between the socket and the switch or the ground which would go to the chassis

Can i use h4 -130/80cp-60/55w halogen lights on my 2002 kia spectra


hi,

you can try to see if the kias headlight wiring and assmeblies will take it. it may blow a fuse. first leave the stock headlight on for ten minutes to see how hot the composite headlight assembly gets. replace one on the passenger side with the hotter bulb and observe how hot the wires and composite headlamp assembly is getting. it it gets to hot to handle then I wouldnt do it. if its okay then replace them both, feel the main headlight wires to make sure theyre not to hot either. leave them on with the replacements for another 10 minutes, the stock fuse would blow in that time. You may have to go up 5 amps on the headlight fuses but absolutely no more. have you seen the other type of headlights HID's?
you might want to try that option as well, and I think those are are designed to replace stock installations better. use your discretion and be careful. the last thing you want is headlights using their own candlepower! lol,

2002 Toyota highlander passenger brake light not working


RE: 2002 Toyota Highlander 2.4cyl. 4X4 Base Model

I am a Certified Technician and have basic knowledge with electronics in electrical wiring. I searched the web and discovered this is a common problem.

I fixed the problem and it was a simple procedure... The problem is with the reverse light socket at the side with no brake light. This socket functions as a hub to direct current to the brake bulbs.

Remove reverse light socket and re-seat bulb. Check for loose or broken prongs. Replace if necessary.

Swap the reverse socket with the other side.

Water build up inside Headlight


The weather seal is shot. Replace the entire assembley but don't forget to reconnect the turn signal bulb BEFORE you reinstall the assembley into the car body!

Passenger side low beam headlight on a 2002 nissan altima


when you got the spark chances are you shorted the receptacle for the bulb on the low side you should check the fuse for this . the drivers side low beam worked before so i would say you blew the fuse. on the passenger side check for broken ,frayed ,or loose wires in the light harness and the plugs them selves chances are you will find a short in them. please rate this solution
