For some reason, Toyota chooses to wire their headlamps differently than domestic cars, with dual fuses for the headlamps, and a common ground for each headlamp...The reason that the lamp was dim is the bulb was getting power thru a "backfeed" condition, due to the poor ground. The fuse may have blown due to the poor ground, also.

SOURCE: dims don't work but brights do.
I believe that all of the Functions Listed above are on the Same Handle. There is a Half Moon Circuit and Switch that Goes around the Steering Shaft inside the Steering Column for this Handle. This is Malfunctioning and will need to be Replaced. Not an Easy Job. You will need to Pull the Sterring Wheel and go from their. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

I finally got mine fixed!! It was the crossover wires between headlights(the wires that run in front of the radiator). One wire was torn into. Spliced them and taped back together. Hope this works for you!! I also used something called wire caps that help hold the spliced wires together. I found this solution on yahoo.com search engine where someone else had suggested this. My only problem was no dim lights, but all the other lights worked fine.

could be dimmer switch,may heat up and kill lights or maybe headlamp switch, your at a point were you are going to have to replace parts,first thing is headlamp switch, take apart but leave it pulged in when lights dont work install new switch and see if that works, this is not a diffuclt problem dont know why dealer could not pin point,anyway start there, good luck.
