Question about 1999 Toyota Camry

2 Answers

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

Low beams work, but when trying to switch to high beams with lever, they do not come on. Also, the high beam indicator on the dash does not come on(blue light on dash). These are new headlight bulbs.

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

High beam and low beam are on separate circuits so probably a fuse or bad connection in wiring plug somewhere. Pull hard back on the beam switch on the steering column and hold it back. Leave the lights turned OFF. If the high beam works including blue dash indicator then switch is faulty. If it doesn't the problem lies elsewhere. Just letting you know cos these switches are expensive.

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?

Park lights work on 1995 Camry but brake lights don't.. high beams work but low beams don't. All bulbs have been replaced but still not working. Any ideas?


for the brake lights check your fuses and relays and for your low beams your multifunction lever needs to be changed.

High beams will come in but low beams will not.


Inspect headlamp relay, located in engine room junction box #2. If relay is OK suspect faulty headlamp switch.
