Check the relay and the switch and test the lights.

SOURCE: High beams don't work

Hi,

Most of the time when the high or low beams don't work you have a bad dimmer switch. I would reccomend getting it replaced.

SOURCE: head light not working on high beam

When dealing with wiring on a vehicle, it can go from something real simple, to something real complicated, in a hurry!

1.Checked to make sure the headlights have high beam? Bulbs are good in that respect? Not trying to insult your intelligence, but sometimes it's the simple things we overlook. Again, not trying to sound 'Uppity', but do you have access to a type of jumper wire, that has a needle type of tip on both ends? This way you can stick the needle tip, into the wire that has 'juice' for the low beam side of the headlight, and touch the high beam side. See if the high beam comes on.

2.Sometimes it's as simple as a bad ground. There is a wire, or wires, that come out of the headlight wire loom, and have a rounded metal terminal end. A machine screw, goes through the hole in this rounded metal terminal end, and fastens it to the metal sheet metal of the body.

The metal frame of a vehicle, and the metal sheet metal, is the ground for a vehicle.
A lot of times, where this rounded metal terminal end is fastened to the sheet metal, (Or frame), rust can develop between them. Between the metal terminal end, and the sheet metal. This makes a bad contact for grounding.

There is enough of a ground source for low beam headlights, but not enough for the additional draw of the high beams.

3.In the headlight wire loom, there is a Fusible Link. This looks like a 1, or 2, or 3 inch large bump in the wire. This fusible link is designed to melt inside, and break contact, should it need to. Sometimes it's readily apparent when you view this fusible link. It will have the plastic covering melted on one side, or partially around. Sometimes it's not so obvious. (Isn't wiring fun(?)
You just have to use the probes, (Needle tip is real nice here), on a multimeter, (Set to DC voltage, and the 50 volt scale), and track from battery to headlight switch, to headlights.

4.Lastly, it may be the headlight switch itself.

SOURCE: head lights won't work. drl and high beams work

Check for sure, that both bulbs haven't somehow (unlikely, I know) blown out. If they are both fine, it could be the headlight switch. Another possibility, there was a recall recently for the headlights due to the splices not staying together, causing the regular headlights to not function. This recall affected over 90,0000 Suzukis of different model years. Hope this helps, sorry I couldn't give you anything concrete

SOURCE: driver side head light does not work...the high

Change the bulb. High and low beams are separate bulbs located in the headlight housing. Im not sure on the 07 but the earlier design Yukon (02)you have to pull out a pin located under the hood on the top of the light housing in order to remove it.

Headlights wont work on dim, only bright


Check your head light bulbs, your truck has the dual filiment headlight bulbs one per side which does both high beam and low beam, 9007 bulbs.
If the low beam filiments are burned out only the high beam will work.
Also look into finding out if the headlight switch is gone bad.
The headlight module and or drl module maybe defective.

Cleaned the snow off the Avalon and noticed a loud pop and the right highbeam light had blown out. Within 10 minutes as driving heard the left highbeam light blow out. Never had this happen with any...


There is a Technical Service Bulletin regarding the high beam bulbs on the Avalon. TSB# 0044-10, NHTSA# 10033406. Mind you, this is not a recall, so any repairs the dealer makes will cost you dearly. Since the high beams are standard halogen bulbs, I would recommend that you replace them yourself with Sylvania long life bulbs. If the dealer replaces the entire assembly, it may involve the HID low beams to the tune of $1000 or more. You can contact your dealer and ask for information about the tsb, all the dealerships received the tsb. If he offers to repair it in accordance with the tsp, get it in writing that there will be no charge.

High beam headlights not working


Hello chinson. When the highbeams are not working, the problem is usually the switch. Since this is a 2008, your warranty will probably be in play. Contact your Toyota dealer before you do a self-repair. Joe
