SOURCE: no driving or high beam headlights

Hi,

To my knowledge a 2003 Toyota Camry uses a dual filament halogen bulb, either by Osram, Philips or Sylavania. If on the dashboard, the blue indicator lits when the switch is moved to bright or the passlight is engaged but no headlight, then it could jut be busted bulb (or part of it since you still have driving/low beam). In some cases, it could be the relay that supplies power direct to the bulb. At other times, it could be fuse(s) assigned to high beam. At certain instances, it could be also a loose, corroded or burned connector.

Corrective measure for your concern would be to check the 2 bulbs. This is performed by removing the rear covering (rubber or plastic cap) of the headlight assembly from the rear. The bulbs are held in place by a spring clip that needs to be unlatched from the base/holder. Carefully remove the bulb taking care not to touch the glass envelope. The filaments would be readily visible and cut/breaks would be apparent. If determined that one of the filaments (high beam) is open, replace the bulb(s).

If the bulbs prove to be OK, you need to work yourself backwards tracing the wiring harness. After the bulb, check the 3 prong connector for any corrosion or scorching/burnt marks; clean as maybe required. Next to check would be the relay that provides the +12VDC and then the fuse.

I doubt if the dashboard or steering wheel components involve with headlights may be at fault.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Sorry but the gauges have to be removed to replace the globe.Not the whole dash though,just the gauge surround and gauges only have to be pulled out far enough to get your hand in to change the globe.Good luck

1999 Toyota Camry . Low beams work, but no high beam.


I would guess the switch on the steering column
is worn out,thus no high beam feature

That switch & that part of the lighting system has to be tested

Best if you have wiring diagrams & electrical skills

As with almost all folks that come to any web site, I assume
everyone ends up at a repair shop,because no one says otherwise

I have 2003 Buick-Lesabre low beams work fine and high beams do not work, however the high beam icon on dash board works.


check relays and headlight globes. The dash icon is wired into the relay actuator circuit and is indication of a power circuit to the relay not that the high beam is working.

Dash lights only turn on when high beams are on


could be your low beam relay, found in fuse panel either under dash or on firewall in engine compartment. or you have a wire short. this is much harder to find without wiring diagram

High beam headligts will not come on + no dash


Sounds like a bad switch to me. If it was a relay,it would not work period.Not to mention, the switch controls the dash lights too.
