Brights not turning on for my Toyota Corolla 1998, mechanic said it isnt getting power

I would suspect that the issue is in the steering column switch. I would try setting up a separate switch to activate the high beams to isolate the problem. An make sure that the fuse is checked. Some Toyotas have seperate high and low beam fuses.

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

I have a 1998 Toyota Corolla that was running just great until one night the lights wouldn't shut off, not even when the engine was turned off. What's wrong and how do I fix?

Sounds like you have a relay stuck in the closed position. This is the relay that controlls the auto on/off head lights. When you turn the car off with the headlights on the relay is triggered as soon as you open your door, then the headlights turn off to keep you from running your battery down. I would suspect this is the problem. Replace the relay once tested bad.

Headlights go off when dark

I had the same problem with my 1998 Toyota Corolla. The sensors worked fine during the day, but all of a sudden they were out when it was dark outside. In addition my headlights would not come on when I tried turned them on manually. Of course this was a major problem. So I took my car to the dealership and they told me that the car needed new electrical wiring. They could not tell me how much it would be. Of course I don't trust a dealership to give me a good price, so I took it to Firestone. Not all mechanics are certified for Toyota, which was the case for the mechanic at Firestone. However, he was able to give me a temporary fix. He disabled the sensors all together so I could turn on the headlights manually. I hope this helps.
