SOURCE: no driving or high beam headlights

Hi,

To my knowledge a 2003 Toyota Camry uses a dual filament halogen bulb, either by Osram, Philips or Sylavania. If on the dashboard, the blue indicator lits when the switch is moved to bright or the passlight is engaged but no headlight, then it could jut be busted bulb (or part of it since you still have driving/low beam). In some cases, it could be the relay that supplies power direct to the bulb. At other times, it could be fuse(s) assigned to high beam. At certain instances, it could be also a loose, corroded or burned connector.

Corrective measure for your concern would be to check the 2 bulbs. This is performed by removing the rear covering (rubber or plastic cap) of the headlight assembly from the rear. The bulbs are held in place by a spring clip that needs to be unlatched from the base/holder. Carefully remove the bulb taking care not to touch the glass envelope. The filaments would be readily visible and cut/breaks would be apparent. If determined that one of the filaments (high beam) is open, replace the bulb(s).

If the bulbs prove to be OK, you need to work yourself backwards tracing the wiring harness. After the bulb, check the 3 prong connector for any corrosion or scorching/burnt marks; clean as maybe required. Next to check would be the relay that provides the +12VDC and then the fuse.

I doubt if the dashboard or steering wheel components involve with headlights may be at fault.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: DRL and High Beam do not work right on Honda Accord EX 1998

Some time back I found some data on a similar website suggesting that the Day Light Running circuit board, just under the steering column, developed cracks in some of the soldered joints. Your high beams should also be affected with loss of day light running lights.
Resoldering repaired the continuity of the circuits. Ours is now working quite reliably. Some of the defective areas developed slight brownish discoloration, that's how I was told to recognise the areas to be resoldered. Hope this will help you solve your problem.

the regular lo beams have a separate fuse and relay if I remember correctly. Check Fuse 3, 4, 5 and 16 in the your junction block in the passenger side kick panel.

Sorry, was not available at your time. Since the blue light comes on, this tells me that the hi-beam fuse is good. Go to the pass side headlamp, and, behind it, remove the connector for the inop bulb, and remove the bulb. Examine the filament on the bulb. Is it broken in half? If so, you need two hi-beam bulbs. Get back to me if you need more info.

Have you checked out the switch itself? Seems like the problem might be there.
If the lamp bulbs are sill intact, that's probably the most likely solution. There's a possibility you have a short somewhere in the switch relay that will allow the highlights to turn on but not the low beams.

Fuel pump relay location


The fuel pump relay on the 1991 Oldsmobile Toronado Trofeo is behind the glovebox, toward the top and to the right. There is a small relay panel that is not very easy to get to.

I have a 1991 toronado trofeo and want to have the VIC display my name when it first comes on. Currently it displays the original owners name on the VIC screen. Any ideals


Hi Sammy, it's been awhile since i worked on one of these with a VIC...wished i can remember how to scroll through the prompts. However i did a find a shop manual for your Toronado that you might be interested in...these are getting rare also. I'm sure the info you need will be in it. Here is the link if you care to check it out...I hope this helps.

I have a fully loaded Trofeo. The dash lights won't work and it doesn't appear to be any fuses. The headlights have the auto sensing for darkness and auto on and I believe the instrument panel lights are...


To the left of the panel there is a little button that will move vertically. push that all the way up, just before it clicks (the click will turn all interior lights on). If that doesn't work there is a fuse in the glove compartment. i don't have my manual on me but there is a cluster that has instrument panel lighting on it. it usually says IP cluster or something. or have a mechanic go into service mode. I could tell you how to do that but it's kind of confusing without showing you

it would be cheaper to replace the shocks with the same as you have on the car now. otherwise you have to have other things done to the car to make new different shocks workfor the car
