I'm listening to you and think your talking about the low beam headlights. eing your going to be working on it anyway why not change them both? The owers manuel tells in the maintance part of the book. Ride over to your local auto parts store The ones thats been there forever are the best tell them you what to change to new headlight bulbs and they'll recomend even better lights than your car came with and most perple like the extar light and longer life, Be nice to your parts salesman and he may even shoe you how to put them in and even do it for you. They know thats how they stay in bussness and they'll help some.

    once the rubber cover is off the bulb has a wire bale that hooks under a tab made onto the light.. the wire bale swings out of the way and the bulb can be lifted out. theres 3 blades on the bulb that arediffernt sizes so you can only put the bulb in one way. notice where the biggest blade comes out and put the new one back in the same way, swing the wire bale back and pust the bale under the tab so it'll be stuck. put the plastic cover back on it snapps in and them plug in the wire test it and your done don't forget not to touch the glass part of the bulb as it'll make it burn out quick.

I f your asking how to remove the cover which doesn't look like it has any screws and its plastic. You just use a small screwdriver or knife and carefully pop the cover off. The lightbulb just pulls out.

I have a 2002 Buick Rendezvous and the radio and heater control backlights have shut off simultaneously and now only the vent control and trunk release lights work.


I would take a look see at the ground circuits for the none working lights . The incandescent back lighting lamps are then grounded at G200, G301 and G302. You would need factory service info for the location of the grounds .Like this from buick
G200
Right side of the I/P, secured on the underside of the cross car beam, behind the I/P compartment . The I/P compartment is the glove box ,don't know why they just don't say that . You could also check out the power and ground from the componet that's not working ! You can find factory like service info. from alldata
http://www.alldata.com/ . Check out some videos on youtube

Interior Lamps Dimming
The second group includes lamps which may be dimmed. This group may use a combination of vacuum fluorescent (VF) illumination and of incandescent lamps.
• The door switches and the window switches
• The HVAC control head assembly
• The radio
• The instrument panel cluster (IPC)
• The steering wheel controls
• The heated seat switch
• The HUD switch
• The lift glass window release switch and traction control switch
When the ignition switch is turned to the ON position, the vacuum fluorescent (VF) displays (radio and HVAC control assembly), incandescent lamps, turn on at maximum brightness. When the park lamps are on and the ambient light sensor indicates low light conditions, all incandescent back lighting turn on at the dimming level indicated by the IP dimmer switch. At the same time all vacuum fluorescent (VF) displays dim to match the indicated dimming level. The BCM L fuse in the console fuse block, supplies battery positive voltage to the BCM. The I/P courtesy lamps supply voltage circuit of the BCM, supplies battery positive voltage to all the dimmable lamps. When the headlamp switch is placed in the PARK position, the BCM will then dim the interior lamps to the dimming level indicated by the IP dimmer switch. When the driver selects a dimming setting by moving, the IP dimming switch potentiometer, all incandescent back lighting lamps are provided with a specific voltage. The incandescent back lighting lamps are then grounded at G200, G301 and G302. When the IP dimmer switch is moved from MIN to MAX, all vacuum fluorescent (VF) displays, as well as all incandescent back lighting respond from Minimum intensity to maximum brightness in response to the IP dimmer switch.
The driver may select parade mode by manually turning on the park lamps during daylight conditions. The front park lamp circuit supplies voltage to the instrument panel cluster, radio and HVAC assembly for a park lamp on input, and the displays will become full bright.

Light out in middle console.


bad light bulb, it can be a fuse because many lights in car all use same feed. (usually on the dimmer knob circuit)

expect more soon. they are nearing end of LIFE.

Does the fuse blow as soon as you plug it in or only after you turn on lamps?
Your front and rear park lamps and tag lamps all get voltage from the same source. When testing, did you unplug the front park lamps to see if fuse still blows? You don't have to blow all your fuses, you can a test light between fuse terminals, If the lite comes on, the circuit is still going to ground.

Toyota camry 2200cc - 1998


Ahhh. I see. The yellow car with the lines coming out of the back. That symbol indicates that you have a burned out tail-lamp, or a burned out brake lamp. Turn the headlamps on, and check all of the rear lights. Check to see if any are burned out, or dim. The must ALL be of the same intensity. Then, have someone press the brake pedal, and check all of the brake lamps. Don't forget to check the center brake lamp, in the lower portion of the rear window. I'm pretty sure that you are going to find a burned out bulb. Hope this helps. Please get back to me on what you find. Thanks.
