Easiest way would be to install a switch between the lights and the high beam switch. That way it would still come on only when high beams are on but you could turn them off. Alternately you could rewire them completely so they run only off of a switch, but then you would have to tun them on and off manually all the time. ---> expect to be pulled over for not dimming your lights when you encounter an oncoming police car and you forget they are on.

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: high beams wont turn on.

First place to start is with headlight switch. I did have a case many years ago when both high beams were blown out at once, but this is rare. When you have the headlight switch out, jump power from te low beams to the high beam contacts. If high beams come on, replace switch.

SOURCE: headlights flickering

This could be caused by a lot of different things,,but usually it is the fault of the Headlight Relay.
Try replacing the relay before going further.

SOURCE: its a ford headlights shut off after i flased high beams,

If you were flashing your high beams to get the car in front of you out of the way then maybe it is just karma.

Where to hook up power wire for aftermarket driving lights in 93 Nissan Maxima


You should use a dash mounted switch and connect the power wire to a wire on the fuse block that goes off when the engine stops. That way the lights can assist you in all driving situations. Why limit them to only operate on low beams?

Where to hook up power wire for aftermarket driving lights in 93 Nissan Maxima


if you hook the driving lights to the low beam circuit you will be in breach of traffic regulations the regulation reads that driving lights can only be operated with high beams and on selection of low beam , the lights have to go out
added to that is the clause --the driving lights most be extinguishable when on high beam by the use of a separate isolation switch
now the circuit is really simple
you place a relay for each driving light in a suitable place
you run a fused wire from the battery to the relay and then to each light
to make those relays work you connect a wire from the existing high beam relays connections(m piggy back or like connection) so that when on high beam the trigger power that puts the headlights on also triggers the driving light relays
Now to meet regulations you run ground wires for the driving lights back to a switch in the cabin then to ground

I replace my front light,sporter harley 2007,now the light came with 3 wires, and the cycle have 4 , how I can connect,


What color are the wires from the light and from the wiring harness? If there are two white wires somewhere, one is probably for the "high beam indicator" light.

My latest wiring diagram shows.

Black as ground
Yellow as low beam
white as high beam and high beam indicator lamp.

Hope this helps.
