SOURCE: My 2000 Toyota Corolla headlights will not turn on during the night, and stay on during the day

Your Corolla has daytime running lights (DRLs). A photocell determines whether it is day or night. Your DRLs turn on automatically in daytime without you operating the light control ("headlight") switch. Your DRLs are actually your headlights on low beam. At night, the photocell senses it is dark and disables the DRLs. When you set the light control ("headlight") switch to HEAD, the head relay closes and the headlights should turn on. Since they don't, I suggest opening the engine room junction block and checking the 40A MAIN fuse and the 10A LEFT HEAD (UPPER) and RIGHT HEAD (UPPER) fuses. In engine room relay block 5, check the 10A LH-LWR HEAD and RH-LWR HEAD fuses. Replace any blown fuses and the headlights should be working normally again

SOURCE: Need to change headlight on 1998 Toyota Corolla

Unless you have really small hands, you are going to have to unbolt the battewry bracket, and move the battery backwards as far as possible. Then you will be able to see the connection where the bulb socket mounts behind the headlamp. There are 2 different styles of bulbs that you may find...
If you see a large rubber ring, remove it, and undo the silver clip to extract the bulb.
If the wiring/socket goes directly into the back of the headlamp, simply twist the socket 1/4 turn, and pull it out.

Dashboard lights and tail lights don't work 95 toyota corolla


The circuits are on two different fuses, but both are controlled by the headlight switch. I would check for power at those fuses then at the switch.

My 98 Toyota corolla's headlights on low or high


hello, it could be ground connection issue, carefully check under the dash at the left side there is a ground bus point, it's a the end of a insulated harness which may be taped to the other harness, all white black wires terminate at the end plug connector, there is a cap on the end, it's a white connector with a bunch of wires going into it, all white/black, remove the cap there may be some corrosion inside, all these wires must be grounded if they are not then make new ground connections to the body. a couple of the wires are grounded and the others get ground from them, however you do it doesn't matter as long as all are grounded. Also take a look at the fuse box inside there may be some wires that look overheated which is a sure sign of bad grounds in the DRL and lighting system,

1998 toyota corolla dash and shifter lights out fuse and relay good


sounds like you have a bad panel dimmer control. try turning the control from bright to dim very fast a few times then slowly, do this in a dark area or at night with the headlights on, you should see a flicker of light occasionally. If you don't see any light then it could be either the headlight switch or the dimmer control, if you DO see any light, then it's your dimmer

I have a 1998 Toyota Corolla that was running just great until one night the lights wouldn't shut off, not even when the engine was turned off. What's wrong and how do I fix?


Sounds like you have a relay stuck in the closed position. This is the relay that controlls the auto on/off head lights. When you turn the car off with the headlights on the relay is triggered as soon as you open your door, then the headlights turn off to keep you from running your battery down. I would suspect this is the problem. Replace the relay once tested bad.

Headlights go off when dark


I had the same problem with my 1998 Toyota Corolla. The sensors worked fine during the day, but all of a sudden they were out when it was dark outside. In addition my headlights would not come on when I tried turned them on manually. Of course this was a major problem. So I took my car to the dealership and they told me that the car needed new electrical wiring. They could not tell me how much it would be. Of course I don't trust a dealership to give me a good price, so I took it to Firestone. Not all mechanics are certified for Toyota, which was the case for the mechanic at Firestone. However, he was able to give me a temporary fix. He disabled the sensors all together so I could turn on the headlights manually. I hope this helps.
