Rav 4 headlight wont work

99-2000 Toyota Rav 4 five door auto headlights have stopped working. The side lights and rears work but the courtesy flash, main and full lights dont. Also full beam blue indicator not working.I have checked all fuses ( that I can find) all ok and tested the headlamp relay with external 12volts seems also ok though the relay not activating when in car. Running out of ideas. Can anyone help?

This is a typica grounding error. You should try to add a good ground cable to your tail light. Sound strange but this often solves such issue:)

Auto electrical problems with 02 MB E320


Hi, you will have to get your car pluged into a Diagnostic computer with MB software.
It may just be a case of reseting the system.
But if it comes to the worst one of the SAM (can system) units has gone a little faulty & can only be replaced & reprogramed using MB computer system at a Merc garage or a top Diagnostic garage.

Toyota rav 4


I work for Toyota, and I will be glad to provide you with the actual answer:

The RAV/4 product is available in two models, a 4WD model and a 2WD model.
The difference between the two is on the 2WD model, there is no driveshaft going under the vehicle to the rear wheels, and no rear differential. There is no "RAV/2"; both models are called RAV/4's.

There is a lot of common confusuion about how the 4WD works. It is full time 4WD. In other words, it is always in 4WD. It does not "kick in/kick out/automatically engage", or anything like that. It is 4WD all of the time. But, when I say "4WD", that is sometimes mistaken for "all wheel drive", and, in this case, the RAV/4 is not "AWD". What this means is that if you raise the RAV/4 up on a lift, and put it in gear, 1 rear and the other side front tires will spin. True "all wheel drive" would have ALL 4 wheels spinning. This is not the case with the Rav/4. What the RAV does have, making up for not having "True AWD" on the 5 speed model, however, is a switch that locks the center differential in the transfer case, which, when engaged, applies a method of "locking" the 4WD system for maximum traction, but it is still not AWD. The automatic version doe not have this ability.
The last "true AWD" vehicle for purchase was a 1970's International Scout.
If you are considering purchasing a RAV/4, that is a very good investement. They hold their value quite well, and are virtually bulletproof; I do not make any "money" off my RAV/4 customers...
Just "gas station work". Very nice cars. I hope that this helps you, please feel free to comment back with any otherr questions...Glad to be of assistance.
