Question about 1999 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

I recently purchased a '97 camry. The DRL come on when the car starts, but they are very dim. There is nothing in the Owner's Manula about the system. Can you direct me to a source of information on them?

Usually when the lights are dim then it is a ground on the bulbs. If they are coming on that means that the relay is working. The only thing that it can be is the ground. You can take a jumper wire and go from the battery and slide it in beside the ground wire that is connected to the light and see if the light gets brighter. You can also go to www.autozone.com and add this car to your cars at the top. Then go down to repair info. And this will give you more info on anything that you want to do. Very helpful and free.

Highbeam lights very dull on 1999 Geo prism? Put new wiring plug(?) Any idea what the problem is? on and change dimmer relay with no luck! Ant


are you in USA.?
are you in Canada with mandatory DRL lighting?
we can not guess that,
DRL car is complex.
DRL has a 20 pin module just for DRL, crazy complex.
the FLASH on DRL grounds the HL directly bypassing DRL relay
so is super important the FLASH test.
There are 2 systems used, the toyota uses hot all time headlights
(via the HL relay and dimmer relay)


I need this?
is it dim on high, yes,
is it dim on low, no.
is it dim , when you push the lever to FLASH.??????
if flash works we know why it fails. see? (paths)
see?
if high beams and FLASH are dim, then DRL relay bad.
(can be other failures., for sure even wires bad)

its just a:
Toyota Corolla. Gen 6 to 8. (in snake skins)
if you have voltmeter this is child's play , really
finding point of voltage drop tells you what is wrong
find a shop with sparks guy? be best or by a meter and learn>?
guessing can take a long long weekend.
is labor time not a matter to you or down time?
ok I pulled up your cars HL schematic.
DRL is super complex
id pull the DRL module and look for burned pins
they love to do that DRL does.
so got DRL
and does FLASH work right>?

Dim head lamps and day light running lamps won't come on my 2000 Buick lasabre


Daytime Running Lamps
With the daytime running lamps (DRL) programmed to be on, the DRL will operate when the ignition switch is in the ON position, the gear selector lever is out of the PARK position, the headlamp switch is in the OFF or PARK position, and the ambient light sensor indicates daytime conditions. Battery positive voltage (B+) is supplied to the DRL relay coil through the underhood fuse block. Battery positive voltage is supplied through the underhood fuse block FOG/DRL Fuse to the DRL relay normally open contact. The DRL relay normally closed contact receives ground for normal high headlamp operation. When the dash integration module (DIM) determines that conditions are right for the DRL, the DIM grounds the DRL relay coil. This energizes the DRL relay coil and closes the switch to the normally open contact. Battery positive voltage (B+) is supplied to the LH and RH high beam headlamps in series. The high beam headlamps split the voltage and each lights at half intensity. Current will follow the path from the DRL relay to the LH high beam headlamp, HDHIBML Fuse, HDHIBMR Fuse, the RH high beam headlamp, then to ground.
Does your vehicle have
Twilight Sentinel
The twilight delay switch in the headlamp switch is supplied a reference voltage from the instrument panel integration module (IPM). It is supplied a reference ground from the IPM. The switch is a potentiometer that resistance varies as the switch is moved. The IPM receives an input voltage proportional to the resistance of the potentiometer. The IPM sends a class 2 message to the dash integration module (DIM) indicating the on/off status and delay length for the twilight sentinel. With the twilight sentinel in an ON position, the DIM will automatically control the headlamps on/off status depending on the nighttime/daytime status of the ambient light sensor. The DIM will use the twilight sentinel delay length to know how long to keep the headlamps and park lamps on after the ignition switch transitions from ON to OFF during nighttime conditions.
If you don't know about these things you best bet is to take it to an ASE certified repair shop or the dealer .

97 geo metro, low beams won't work, high beams work. dlr doesn't work either


DLR, you meant DRL? day light running lamps>?
are you in canada, if yes, that be good to say , yah?
and if so, the wiring is all unique there, as it is on all cars in all countries (laws )
to fix DRL in ANY car you need (unless luck and inspections fail)
is called a SCHEMATIC. with that and any $10 volt meter this job is easy.
so what do we know. we know the 2 fuses are not BLOWN.
we know that DRL runs low beams. and fails
we know that DRL does not run Highs ever. (top clue)
my guess is FLASH works too, and is clue 2.
clue 3, is the HL relay is good, or high beams would be dead except on FLASH.
the first thing to do with DLR failure. is to pull the module
and see the burnt pins, as all Geo/Suz. love to do.... weak parts.
now some DRL rules. the DRL has logic, and if the inputs to it
fail the DRL fails.
the hand brake most work, that is the switch and the brake lamp on the dash must go out, does it?
rule 2. the DRL lamp on the dash does it work>? normally?

the DRL runs lows.
and the DRL has 2 modes, for DRL
DRL , with the dimming resistor active (DRL mode is dim)
DRL , bypassed mode, driver selects Lows.
the DRL logic sees you do that and exits, DRL dim mode for full bright low beams.
that i show it all works.
see this drawing.
ask how to test it more.. its not hard, ask.

here it is.
sorry that fixya add image sux.. truely.

or measure the voltage on all pins (dlr module)
tell me?them.?
and I tell you whats wrong.but look for burned pins first ,hint hint

Daytime running light


[Information] For a 2002 Toyota Camry, the Daytime Running Lights (DRL) operate utilizing the High Beams (inner Lamps closer to the center of the vehicle front) at a reduced power.

[The troubleshooting process:] Review the Owner's Manual and ensure the test configuration matches the following criteria:
1. According to the 2002 Toyota Camry Owner's Manual (Check your Owners Manual):
"The DRL system will make your headlights come on at a reduced brightness when:
The light switch s in the "DRL" position.
The ignition is on with the engine running.
The headlight switch is off.
The parking brake is released."


2. Set the Test Conditions according to Step 1 above.

3. Check the headlight bulbs to ensure they are not burned out. If one burns out, there is a fair chance that the other would have burned out at the same time. Replace as necessary. In this case, if the high beams operate, the DRLs should also operate.
4. Test the system, ensuring the step 1 conditions are set. (Engine running, Multi-function Switch on Turn Signals in "DRL" position, headlight switch off (repeating what the manual says -- it should be obvious that in the "DRL" position, the headlight switch should be off / do not have the switch positioned to "High Beam"), and the Parking Brake "off").
5. If DRL lights do not work, check the engine compartment Fuse and Relay Box. there is a 5 Amp DRL fuse -- replace it with the spare. Test (step 4).
6. If it does not work, swap around or replace relays -- there are three (3). Any one of them could be bad (stuck or burned out). Test (step 4).
7. Other less likely possible issues could be that the Multi-function Switch is broken or a connection / wire is broken. [Beyond the scope of this process.]


My problem was that the test configuration did not have the engine running and parking brake off - Step 1. Problem solved with much thought, repetitive tests on the vehicle and going back to the basics -- what does the Owner's Manual say and where are the applicable fuses and relays located?

Headlamps inoperative daytime running lamps come on then go out jumped out headlamp switch ground circuit out still no headlamps.


It sounds like your DRL RELAY/Headlight relay. I had this happen with a 2000.

Please rate me if this helps You.

Here is some info that I hope is helpful to you.

This first part is how to disable the DRL
TOYOTA. From the Toyota technical service bulletin EL011-00 Web site for specific models determine where the module is; either the DRL relay or the body ECU, connector number, pin #. Oct 6,2000.

Avalon 1999 DRL relay D4 pin 1
Avalon 2000 body ECU B5 pin 6
Camry S/D 99* DRL relay D6 pin 23
Camry S/D 00* DRL relay D6 pin 10 *twilight sentinel
Camry Solara99/00* DRL relay D6 pin 23
Celica 2000* body ECU B6 pin 17
Corolla 99/00* DRL relay D3 pin 23
ECHO 2000 DRL relay D2 pin 12
4Runner 2000 DRL relay D8 pin 2
Land Cruiser 99/00 DRL relay D8 pin 2
MR2 Spyder 2000 DRL relay D2 pin 12
RAV4 99/00 DRL relay D17 pin 2
Sierra 99/00 DRL relay D4 pin 2
Tacoma 2000 DRL relay D8 pin 2
Tundra 2000 DRL relay D7 pin 2
-disconnect battery- Then remove the wire with pin attached and tape to the harness. (consider just cut and tape the wire) -check operation- [except the 2000 MY-Avalon, additionally you need to ground the wire at the module end of the cut wire]


And here is the Headlamp relay part number.
