When a fuse blows (regardless of the car make or model) there are two reasons this may happen:
1) There is a short circuit

2) The wrong fuse was installed


On both cases, the recommendation is that you:
1) Find the fuse box (on most Toyota vehicles it is located in the kick panel to the left of the driver's side.)

2) Remove the fuse box cover and look inside. There should be a diagram telling you which fuse is which.

3) Find and remove the fuse that serves each headlight (there should be one for each. They are both 15 amps or simply have a number 15 on the fuse). If your vehicle is equiped with fog lights, you will see a total of 4 fuses in the fuse box, labled as follows:

Head RH Head LH
Head RL Head LL

4) Inspect the fuses. Make sure the number matches the number in the diagram of the box (if no diagram on the box, then look in your owner's manual, but all I've seen have the diagram)

5) Replace any of the blown fuses WITH THE SAME amp rating fuse (15 Amp). If any of the fuses is not 15 amps, then replace with a 15 Amp.

IMPORTANT: Do not replace with a higher rating!!!!

A blown fuse may be caused by a short circuit. There is a real threat of ELECTRICAL FIRE if a short circuit is not caught in time. This is precisely what the fuses are for.

5) If after replacing the fuse with the correct 15 amp fuse you still have the same problem (i.e. you see the fuse blow when you turn on the headlights) turn the headlights off and consult your repair shop.

Cheers!

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.

At the back of the headlight you should find a rubber cover of some sort, you need to pull that out. After that has been removed, a metal clip that serves as a lock to the bulb and the socket should be there. It hinged to one side and clipped to the other side of the headlamp. Open that one and you should have access to the plug. Pull it out and you should be able to twist the bulb a little to get it out. Do the reverse when inserting the new bulbs.

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

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
