Camry headlights not working

94 Toyota Camry SDV10 wide body.The headlights all of a sudden went out.If you pull the high beam switch back the headlights will come on but go off when the lever is released.When the headlights switch is turned on the high beam light stays on in the dash even though the headlights are not coming on.The high beam light in the dash stays on no mater if the headlight switch is in the low or high beam position.I have checked all fuses, relays and globes.The fact that the lights come on when the high beam switch is pulled back indicates that the circuit including fuses, globes and relays are all ok.Any help would be appreciated.

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.

Daytime Running Lights Inoperative 2002 Toyota Camry

[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?

How do i replace a low beam head light on a 94' camry ?

Things You'll Need:
  • #H11-55W and #9005 replacement bulbs (low- and high-beam bulbs for 2007 and later models)
  • #9006 and #9005 replacement bulbs (low- and high-beam bulbs for 2002-2006 models).
STEPS TO REPLACE HEAD LIGHT: Shut off the Camry's engine and set the parking brake for added safety. Also, make sure its headlights are switched off. Open the hood using the primary and auxiliary hood release latches. Locate the back of the headlight assembly and determine whether the low- or high-beam bulb needs to be replaced. Turn the headlight bulb socket counterclockwise to remove it from the assembly. Unplug the electrical connector from the back of the bulb. Carefully dispose of the bulb to prevent it from shattering or cracking.

How do i replace the headlight bulb?

I am not familiar with the 94 Camry headlight bulbs; however, we have a 94 Lexus ES. The layout is probably the same.

The bulbs are easily accessible under the hood. The bulbholders rotate about 30 degrees and then release. Pull them out, replace the bulb, reinsert them, and rotate back to the original position. You can do all four in 10 minutes. The bulbs are likely 9006 (low beams) and 9005 (high beams).
