Question about 2002 Toyota Tundra

1 Answer

Night driving head lights not turning on.

Engine started up, turned head light switch on, but, only the parking and dash lights came on.
The high beams worked when switched on, so I tried turning off engine, restarting, and removing key, and still no head lights. Could this be a fuse,or,bulb and why only low beams?
Thanks.

    tepfy;

    Sounds good, I have a 2002 Tundra, with 45K, miles and I replaced the orginal bulbs, with 'Silvania Ultra Star' type, six months ago. I'm hoping this is simple, but, I will check the mounting bracket next and then the switch. Hope it's not the switch.

    Thanks much, I appreciate it.

Yes it could be a bulb. If you have any power going to the light then its not the fuse. the next place to look is the light switch. and the mounting bracket that the light switch plugs into. If its a newer car, then just the switch. So replace your bulb and see how it goes.

    one special note, make sure your warring doctor gloves when you change the bulb. If skin comes in contact with the bulb it will shorten the life of the bulb.

SOURCE: no low beams bulbs are ok fuses look good

There may be a relay that operates the low beam lights, check the owners manual to see if there is a relay, you should be able to hear it go "click" if there is one.

  4. Turn the headlamp switch to the OFF position.
  5. With a scan tool, observe the Head Lamp Switch parameter in the Dash Integration Module (DIM) Inputs data list.
Does the scan tool indicate that the Head Lamp Switch parameter is OFF?
I would think you probably don't have a GM Tech 2 factory scan tool , this is a very involved diagnostic flow chart an you can't diagnose it very easily without the factory scan tool . You could replace parts an get lucky . I would start with the high beam relay in the under hood fuse / relay center . Do you know what a relay is , not to talk down to you because I don't what you know . The relay is energized by the DIM - dash integrated module . You may want to take this to a ASE certified repair shop or the dealer !

Headlight switch turns on parking lights but not headlights. Have to hold high beam switch on to have headlights at night.


Replace light switch assembly. Remenber some switches pull up to flash headlights and press down to change from low to high--press down again goes from high to low.

Dash goes out when i turn head lights on


This sounds to me like you may have a faulty headlight switch. If the switch is on the steering column, you will need to replace the whole multi-function switch assembly, if it is on your dash panel, you should be able to just replace the actual headlight switch. Hope this helps.

1999 buick century head lights


Iam an ASE Certified mechanic and i had the same problem with my 99 century and i wasnt able to drive at night. After hours of testing wires we came to the problem. Its the turn signal switch assembly which is tied into the hazard switch on top of the steering column. Its all one piece with a 3 foot long wiring harness attached to it running down the bottom of the steering column and going underneath the dash. The least expensive place i found the part and had it in stock was my local Auto Zone and still the part was $200.00.
