Question about 1998 Toyota Camry
Just cannot find the problem changed all relays,fuses and bulbs and the light switch on the steering column
Accurate fault finding requires a steady nerve and thought as to what powers what. You changed a bunch of stuff without ascertaining you had any juice there in the first place. Take a basic probe with bulb type circuit tester and see if there is any supply at the high beam fuse holder with the fuse removed. One claw that holds the fuse should be live, possibly needing the key to be in the on position. If not then find a diagram in a manual or online and see where the supply comes from. If yes then insert the fuse and move down the line to the h/lamp switch, being careful where you poke the tester. If OK then switch the lights on and locate the high beam relay. Remove relay and see if 2 pins in the relay bank are live. Why 2? Because the relay switches the heavy current required to the h/lamps. This means 1 pin is from the switch and 1 from fuse box (usually) this is where a diagram is gold. If you have a live pin that responds to the switch operation but no others you will have to refer to the diagram to see where the heavy supply comes from and think again. If you have 2 live pins, refit the relay, see if the relay clicks under your thumb when the high beam is operated. If yes, move on down to the plug at the headlamps in turn. Sometimes the harness crosses from one side to other with multi pin plugs. Check the fit of any plugs you find and for trapped or rubbed harness. Continue in a methodic way in hand with a diagram.

SOURCE: LOW BEAM LIGHTS
Hi Rich Million,
Check the bulbs for the low beam problem and if they're ok, check the fuses under the bonnet (hood) which are found in the fuse box. If you've already checked those, go to the fuse box inside the vehicle.
Still no luck....remember that there are fuses and relays inside the cabin behind the kick panel.....You may find that there is a problem with the main fuse box.....If you drive over rough terrain, check the connections under the main fuse box....even if your roads are all smooth, it's still worth checking.....

SOURCE: Low beam headlights don't work
I know this is not your problem, but my low beam stopped working, both bulbs failed, no burn marks or broken element. Just had to tell someone

Your switch must be working since your indicator is telling you when the high beams are on, so my guess is that your bulbs are faulty. The high beam part. They probably burnt out one at a time, so you didn't notice until the second one went. Change your bulbs, and see if that solves it. If not, let me know.
