SOURCE: INOP low beam and high beams

The problem is the headlight switch itself - it's one of the most common failures on these cars. The part, brand-new, is about $158 from ECSTuning.com. Replacing it involves removing the airbag and steering wheel - not difficult but a little nerve-wracking due to the power of the airbag.

If this is something you want to tackle on your own, reply back here and I can give you a step-by-step on doing the work yourself. Or you can go to a shop/dealer and just have them do it. They'll probably charge you at least two hours' labor, even though it's a 40 minute job. Let me know what you would like to do.

SOURCE: All head lights failed. Display reads: left front

they could fail in pairs, check bulbs ,remove and install new ones also check fuses after installing new bulbs if they dont work because they sometimes pop the fuse when they blow out , also theres a left and right lamp fuse so check both fuses , but only if lamps dont work after you install them. hope this helps, good luck.

SOURCE: Left low beam is inoperative. Replaced both bulbs,

I had the same problem with my 2001 Forester. Try this as a low-cost and easy repair attempt: buy brand new fuses and replace both L/H and R/H fuses. If one of your fuses is marginal, your headlights will exhibit this problem. Replacing my headlight fuses with brand new ones solved my situation.

Replaced bulb in dipped beam. Still not working. What is the fuse code for dipped beam


May not be the bulb or fuse..could be the switch... dipped beams illuminate via voltage from the turn signal...Check your wiring and sockets and grounding . Dipped beams are usually near the bottom front fascia of the car . If there is not a shield there, any debris can cause corrosion, or chafing of wires and connections.

Can the headlights be adjusted in 2013 Camry


Yes they should be adjustable because people change tyre profiles front to rear and this alters the drive angle.The adjustment screws are in the headlamp housing behind lamps accessed from the hood/ bonnet side.you do need to do this properly so they align together at the legal height for full beam.there is plenty of online information on the correct height for full beam...once you have made sure all Your tyres are at the right pressure....park on level ground ...at least 3 meters from front of a wall ....and at right angles to the wall....measure the height to the centre of headlight to ground .......mark the right light horizontal line for correct height on the wall and make sure you put lights on full beam....they should shine slightly below (say an inch )to the marked the measurement of height of lamp on the vehicle....adjust until the right hand light horizon is an inch below...now mark vertical line to cross centre of reflected light....this will give you a register point to mark where the left light should fall ...this will be exact distance apart as on vehicle and again adjust left until it falls below 1inch of the measured height line of lamp on car......mark distance from right to left light and mark the same height in chalk....then adjust left light to pinpoint marked chalk cross.adjust the beams by turning the spring loaded screws behind the lights.once you are happy check dipped positions....on right hand drive the lights should dip below and left.left hand drive dip below and right.you probably didn't need so much info but ...hey it's free and it saves any misunderstanding.hope this is of help...please vote.thankyou.

Why doesn't my speedometer/odometer, horn and headlights work?


Which insturment cluster does your's have ? electronic instrument cluster or standard instrument cluster !

Standard insturment cluster - speedo / odometer
Speedometer/Odometer
The speedometer and odometer provides speed information based on a speed/distance pulse signal from the vehicle speed sensor (VSS). The VSS is mounted on the speedometer driven gear in the transmission.
Could be the VSS is bad .
Horn The horn system includes the following:
  • horn relay
  • horn
  • clock spring
  • steering wheel control switch harness
  • steering wheel pad horn switch, which is part of the driver side air bag module. For additional information, refer to Section 501-20B .
The horn is located behind the front bumper mounted to the radiator support.

Is the air bag light lit on the insturment cluster ? If it is the clock spring could be the problem . If not lit check the circuits from the horn relay .

VEHICLE RELAYS Operation Diagnosis .

Which headlamps don't work ? Low beams , high beams , both ?
  • The high beams are inoperative
  • Bulbs.
  • Circuitry.
  • Multifunction switch.
  • GO to Pinpoint Test C .
  • The low beams are inoperative
  • Bulbs.
  • Circuitry.
  • Headlamp switch.
  • Multifunction switch.
  • LCM.
  • GO to Pinpoint Test D .
Principles of Operation
NOTE: Due to varying wattage ratings and resulting current draw, certain aftermarket headlamp bulbs may cause the lighting control module (LCM) to shut down the short circuit protection, resulting in the low beams becoming inoperative. Verify that the headlamp bulbs meet Ford specifications.
Headlamp System The headlamp system consists of:
  • two aerodynamic halogen headlamp bulbs and retainers
  • headlamp switch
  • multifunction switch
  • lighting control module (LCM)
  • circuit wiring and circuit protection
In normal operation:
  • With the multifunction switch in the low beam position, power is supplied by the LCM to the low beam elements through the multifunction switch.
  • With the multifunction switch in the high beam position (forward detent), power is supplied to the high beam elements and to the high beam indicator in the instrument cluster.
  • When the multifunction switch is pulled toward the steering wheel, the flash-to-pass switch (part of the multifunction switch) is closed and power is supplied to the high beam elements. When the switch is released, they return to low beam operation.
  • The battery saver feature of the LCM will automatically turn off the courtesy lamps, demand lamps, headlamps, or parking lamps under the following conditions:
    • The ignition switch is in the OFF position.
    • The headlamp switch is in parking lamps ON or headlamps ON positions.
    • After 10 minutes.
Headlamp Switch The headlamp switch is a multi-position switch.
  • The positions include OFF, PARK, and HEAD.
  • With the headlamp switch in the PARK position (first detent), a signal is supplied to the LCM which powers the front parking lamps, the tail lamps, the side marker lamps, and the license lamp.
  • With the headlamp switch in the HEAD position, power is supplied to the headlamps through the LCM and the multifunction switch.
  • The panel dim switch (part of the headlamp switch) is located above the headlamp switch. The panel dim switch operates only with the parking lamps or headlamps on.
  • When the panel dim switch is held in the up position, the instrument panel lighting will progressively brighten.
  • When the panel dim switch is held in the down position, the instrument panel lighting will progressively dim.
For additional information, refer to Section 413-00 .
Headlamps On Warning Chime If the headlamp switch is left in either the PARK or HEAD position and the driver door is opened, the LCM will sound a headlamps on reminder chime when the following conditions occur:
  • The ignition switch is OFF with the ignition key out.
  • The driver door is ajar.
For additional information, refer to Section 413-09 .

Inspection and Verification
  1. Verify the customer concern by operating the system.
  1. Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical and electrical damage.

My lights are not see properly if i dip my lights i can only see in a distance of 5mitres but if i beam mylights i can see a distance of 9 to 10 mitres its a toyota corolla ae91 please help me


Your headlights need aiming correctly. There are screws next to the headlight the achieve this . Park the car on level ground about 2 meters (6feet) from a solid wall and turn the lights on to high beam. You will see the centre of the beam measure the height from the floor to the center of the headlight and mark this on the wall directly in front of the vehicle. The center of the beam has to be adjusted to to this point.Don't worry about low as the beam for low is set by the bulb and is correctly positioned in relation to high at all times

I have a 1996 toyota camry and would like to know how to adjust the headlights


OK its easy
Park you car in the garage where its rather dark and put 2 boards in front of the lights about 5 foot then turn on the lights on LOW beam now get a white pen and mark a X in the centre of the light beam and a rough line around the lights,
Now open the bonnet and behind the head lights you will see 2 knobs fitted to head light casing noe turn the top one on the Left hand side 1 turn so the light moves UP slightly and into the centre of the car MOVE the beam approx 2" to the centre then do the same to the other side light .
NOW try it out on the road in the dark both dip beam and then high beam and you might have to adjust it a bit more as dip beam must be hitting the road about 25-30 feet to the Side of the road
not to the centre.

I have a 2005 Toyota Rav4. both of my low beam headlights have gone out at the same time. I still have high beam lights, park lights, break lights, for lights, ect. What could cause (other than bad...


hi, sometimes the DIP BEAM light shorts itself and this blows the fuse. if you take the fusebox cover off turn the fusebox cover over, this will tell you witch fuse is for the dip beam. you need to take out the lamps and check these and the fuse. if this is not the prolem then the wire suppling the dip lamps is shorted. or another circuit nearby is shorted to it. gerry

No dipped beam headlights on audi a4 1,9td 2003


Check up dipped beam headlights fuse inside fuse box. For Audi A4 the fuse box is located on the left side of dashboard behind a plastic cover (for left hand steering wheel vehicle). On inner face of the plastic cover you will find the fuse diagram. If the dipped beam headlights fuse is OK, check up dipped beam headlights bulbs.
