Question about 1995 Toyota Land Cruiser

1995 toyota landcruiser diesil headlights

The headlights do not work. There is power going to the inner lights (12v), but not to the outer. As I have it now, the outer lights are on any time the park lights are on, then the inner right one comes on when you change to high beam. With high beam on, the outer lights dim significantly, but do not go totally out. The outer left headlight never works at full brightness, and the inner right one does not work at all. All bulbs are good.

How should the lights work - 4 on high beam, 2 outer on low?

Thanks for any help.

Inner lights are highbeam outer lights low beam and side gaurd lights are your parkers, if you are 100% sure your globes are ok then your dimmer switch is stuffed this is the light switch in the cab that you use to opperate lights, sometimes the contacts get dirty inside the switch and create a short if you are mechanicaly minded then you could have a go at pulling it appart and cleaning it. if not you could get one from the wreckers in your area......

Fitted hid headlights now driving lights dont work

The problem with HID lights is that they require 12 volts or more to work. Daytime running lights on require 6-9 volts from the module. So when the original lights are replaced, the daytime running lights will not supply enough voltage to the HID ballasts to turn them on. The result? No Daytime Running lights. Another alternative is to purchase LED strips and place them around your headlights with a fused accessory power from the ignition switch. When the car is on the strips light up and you have Daytime Running Lights!

Where is the power source for a fuse box in a 1979 trans am? I fried something when connecting the alternator. Now the alternator is getting power, the headlights get power, the starter gets power, and...

The fuse box is two seperate pieces, an inner, under the dash, and an outer, on the firewall. You might have cooked where they join. There is a bolt that holds the two halves together.

Wiring problem with cd player and lights on car

If the unit is turning off when you turn the headlights on, check that you haven't used the illumination wire as ground.

The illumination wire will normally measure as 0V compared to chassis ground. When you turn the headlights on it will go to 12V compared to ground. With the headligts off, if you measure your constant power and switched power (aka 'Accessories') lines against the illumination wire you'll measure 12V and everything will seem alright. However, if you turn the headlights on and then measure again (now that the illumination wire has gone from 0V to 12V) you'll measure 0V, since the voltage difference between the 12V constant/switched power and the 12V illumination wire is zero - they are both now at the same voltage and no current will flow.

Once you find (or install) the correct ground wire and you should be right.

How do I change my front park light bulbs ?

You only need to unscrew the vertical bolt located at the upper-outer side of the headlight, then you only have to pull the park light screen to the front of the vehicle -it could be a litlle hard-, the rest is only turning the bulb socket and take it out. To mount it the opposite procedure.

For additional information I would need your e-mail.
