Its a German car and they are known for electrical problems. Your problem lies within the Drivers light assembly, check the voltage voming into the headlight socket with multimeter and see if there are any voltage spikes or drops, alternating.

SOURCE: Day time running light problem

The problem with the DRL issue describd in the above posts is the DRl module(it needs to be replaced). The buzzing relay and intermittent on/off of passenger side DRl are indicators that the module needs to be replaced.

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.

SOURCE: Daytime Running Lights Inoperative 2002 Toyota Camry

[Information] For a 2002 Toyota Camry, the Daytime Running Lights (DRL) operate utilizing the High Beams (inner Lamps closer to the center of the vehicle front) at a reduced power.

[The troubleshooting process:] Review the Owner's Manual and ensure the test configuration matches the following criteria:
1. According to the 2002 Toyota Camry Owner's Manual (Check your Owners Manual):
"The DRL system will make your headlights come on at a reduced brightness when:
The light switch s in the "DRL" position.
The ignition is on with the engine running.
The headlight switch is off.
The parking brake is released."


2. Set the Test Conditions according to Step 1 above.

3. Check the headlight bulbs to ensure they are not burned out. If one burns out, there is a fair chance that the other would have burned out at the same time. Replace as necessary. In this case, if the high beams operate, the DRLs should also operate.
4. Test the system, ensuring the step 1 conditions are set. (Engine running, Multi-function Switch on Turn Signals in "DRL" position, headlight switch off (repeating what the manual says -- it should be obvious that in the "DRL" position, the headlight switch should be off / do not have the switch positioned to "High Beam"), and the Parking Brake "off").
5. If DRL lights do not work, check the engine compartment Fuse and Relay Box. there is a 5 Amp DRL fuse -- replace it with the spare. Test (step 4).
6. If it does not work, swap around or replace relays -- there are three (3). Any one of them could be bad (stuck or burned out). Test (step 4).
7. Other less likely possible issues could be that the Multi-function Switch is broken or a connection / wire is broken. [Beyond the scope of this process.]


My problem was that the test configuration did not have the engine running and parking brake off - Step 1. Problem solved with much thought, repetitive tests on the vehicle and going back to the basics -- what does the Owner's Manual say and where are the applicable fuses and relays located?

I have a silverado 1500 my driver's side rear tail, brake and turn signal is not working. This started before the check engine light came on. I went to replace the bulbs, but the bulbs were not bl


These are not related issues. The problem is a really common one. Most likely the circuit board is bad. I sell about 4 a week for these trucks. You can pick them up for around $20 at your local parts store.

Suggestion for Headlight Replacement


h4 head lights are normally 55/65 watts
head light brilliance is controlled by the condition of the reflector , the head light glass and head light alignment /aim
with the fitment of relays you can get up to 65 /85 watt bulbs but if the reflector is plastic then it will melt with bigger bulbs

just look for the blackened/burned pin on the rear light plastic connector and sand it down to re-establish a good electrical connection and save yourself $800 big ones on replacing the multiswitch.

I had a transmission flush done 2 weeks ago. 1 week later my \low traction light came on whenever I accelerated from a stop. Now 1 more week later my ABS and TSC lights are on. There is a little shudder as...


First, Iam not a fan of flushing a trans. Owned a trans shop years ago.
You may have caused some solenoid issues, with the clutch material and cooler sediment.
Work on the ABS,TSC issues. Wheel Speed Sensors may be going and just a coincidence, a couple weeks later.
Make sure the fluid is correct for your vehicle and at the correct level.
I pray you didn't go to one of the Quick Lube Franchises.

Over heating. Radiator = 1 yr old. Head rebuilt


Try replacing the thermostat first. If it's new with the head job then try removing it altogether and see if that helps. New ones can go bad. Make sure it is installed with the coil down in the engine.
Is there any chance that silicone or form-a-gasket was used in the rebuild especially around a water jacket? Silicone can break off after the part is tightened and could be plugging a water passage.
When you redid the head was there a choice of more than one head gasket and did you compare the new with the old to be sure it was an exact duplicate? I would be extremely suspicious of either the wro ng head gasket or it being up side down.Either of these could block water passages and create your problem. Hope this helps.

99 Chevy Tahoe... Rear turn signals, brake lights, and hazards


I had this problem, and to be honest, it happened to the left side about a week later...it's the board that the bulbs plug into...it's a very common problem with this model. So popular that you can normally get the socket board off the shelf at a parts store! it's extremely simple to replace, and I replaced all the bulbs at the same time!

Brake lights, Head lights and parkings don't last long.


Good morning,

Check to see if there was a recall for the housing for your lights in the rear of your car. I remember a few years back I received a letter about a recall and I haven't had any problems since they were replaced. I don't know any technical terms, but definitely check out the housing for the lights. Hope this helps!
