Question about 1998 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

Intermittent Headlights '98 Camry

Headlights go off sometimes (rarely) immediately after using either the turn signals (usually left) or changing from dim to bright or back. Control of headlights can be regained by jiggling the turn signal/bright-dim lever. It appears to be mechanical in nature. Observation of the module yields nothing out of the ordinary and connector seems OK. Screws seem tight as well. Toyota says to change the module but cannot be sure if that will fix the problem. Any ideas of what else to look at?

    Apparently I am using the incorrect terminology,,, the device I am referring to is the switch in the steering column which controls the high and low beams of the headlights as well as the turn signals. The Toyota shop referred to this as a "module" so I did too. Sorry for the confusion.

What module are you referring to?
Sounds like your multi function switch is bad. Headlights, high-low, TS all the same switch.

Fast flashing turn signals


I would change out the turn signal bulb on the right front. A blown bulb can cause the fast flash issue. The signals staying on is not related to the bulb being blown. That is most likely a problem with the multifunction switch, the knob you use to signal.

Left turn indicator intermittent how to fix?


The turn signal indicator switch could be corroding (getting rusted on the inside). You could take it out & break the corrosion/rust & lubricate it with wd40 & put it back in..hopefully it solves the issue. If not, then you might need to get another indicator switch. You start off by taking off the steering wheel neck panels

Headlights wont turn on but high beams do on my camry


Have you tried new bulbs, its rare but both low beams may have blown at the same time, it has happened to me in the past.
I don't know your car but the high and low beams could be fused separately so you are left with at least one set in an emergency.
