No low beam headlights hi beam okay fuses 11, 16 okay relay hdlp lo/hid okay bulbs seem okay


Did you check low beam fuses for voltage, with headlamps on lo beam? Use a testlite to check for voltage. In the diagram you see the lo/hid relay, correct? I'm not saying the relay is faulty, you need to check voltage and ground. The bcm and dimmer switch are involved, I don't know if check for headlamp/lighting trouble codes will help? Don't replace anything unless your testing points in the direction.

How to install a HID kit in your car or truck


If you have seen those newer vehicles with the bright bluish headlights and want to install them on your car its a fairly simple installation and an awesome accessory to any vehicle here are the step by step instructions
1. remove your existing headlight bulb or if you have a seal beam headlight you have to buy an H4 housing specific to your vehicle
2. connect the hid ballast to its respective power source
3. connect the hib bulb to the igniters DO NOT TOUCH THE BULB GLASS
4. install the bulb into your stock or after-market light housing
5. mount the ballasts in a place under your hood where they wont heat up, like behind the housing
6. test the lights and make sure that they are both lit and solidly lit not "fluttering"

7.tape all connections lightly with electrical tape and close hood
NOTES *any bulbs that arent 6k bright white are 100% ILLEGAL

*a standard HID kit has only the low beam which is like in between hi and low

*if you want both beams get a BI-Xenon kit that has hi-low beams

No low beam headlights


Either the switch or bad wire connections at the bulbs. Scratch that - I'd be lookin at the switch.

How do I get the low beams to run automatically whenever driving instead of flickering?




if you did it yourself and did not use factory lights or ballast then it could be a voltage detection problem. If you did use factory parts then the headlight switch may have failed by coincidence. also check connections at HL plugs and or switch. ???????????

2007 Toyota RAV4 DRL out - which fuse?


My 2007 RAV4 Limited DRLs are the regular hi beams running at what looks like 1/2 voltage (6V?). I've installed an HID system for the lo beams and would like to do the same for the hi beams but don't see how would work with the stock DRL system.

Wipers won't shut off


I had the same problem. The problem is in the switch (wiper, turn signal, hi-beam, hazard switch - multi-function switch). The part number is S14349 from BWD. My wipers wouldn't turn off and sometimes headlights wouldn't turn on unless I held the hi-beam switch back for about 5 seconds. After I changed the multi-function switch, the wipers still came on twice, but have been fine since (about a month). I don't know if it helped, but after I changed the switch, I pulled the top cover off the wiper motor housing (under hood against firewall right in front of driver - you have to remove hood weather stripping on top of firewall), checked the electrical connection to motor and also pulled up on ground strap checking the make sure I had good contact with the grounding strap. After I checked all that, the wipers came on once by themselves but I could actually turn them off and they have been fine since (don't know if there was some type of memory that caused the wipers to come on after I changed the switch, but they have been fine since then). Hope this is helpful.
