#94 of 131 2001 Toyota Camry Headlights Won't Turn On
Oct 20, 2007 (12:26 pm)
Last week both of my low beam headlights stopped working. The brights still work. I looked at the fuses under the hood in the fuse box that is over the driver's side front tire. All of the fuses in that box looked fine. The owners manual says if you have the all the time on headlights there should also be a fuse box near the front of the hood on the drivers side. I can't find that fuse box. Has anyone else had this problem. I'm just assuming it is a fuse. Let me know if anyone else has had this problem and they think it is something else.
Thanks in advance,

Do you normally have daytime running lights on your car, or not? There are two different circuits, depending upon whether you have DRL.
And can you tell me whether you have any low beam lights at all, in any headlight switch position...

Has anyone had the experience of modifying the Camry to keep the DRLs on all the time to conform to Canadian standards? I'm thinking the switch can just be bypassed somehow, but I'm hoping someone has done this before and can share the secret.

Does anyone have information on whether or not fog lights can be installed on the LE, 2008, Camry?

I have a 2004 Camry and twice now in the past 6 months both my Low Beam light have blown for no apparent reason. Check all fuses all were good. Short in switch?

When I brought my car to Canadia Tire for Federal Inspection, the technician told me that my 08 Camry SE V6 need to modify the DRL (It has built in DRL, but has an option to turn off - which is not allowed by RIV). They charge me $280 + tax to do the modification. I check some other CT location, and one charge only $240 + tax, so better call around to see which one is cheaper. You may do it in small gargage which cost you much less, but I am not sure if they can do a proper job because you don't want your brand new car short it up after.

Can the fog light be turned on during the day? I found after I modified the DRL which can be turned on all the time, my fog light can't be turned on no matter what during the day. It works fine during the night time. I think it is because of the light senser. Is it normal?
My car is 08 camry SE V6

I doubt it.
Bulbs tend to blow (filament breaks), if either the bulb is physically jolted....or they are given too high of a voltage (which then causes too high of a current across a fixed resistance V=iR).
Unless someone is vandalizing your bulbs by whacking them, you have to look to basic electrical problems.
Since the bulbs are made to run at full battery voltage, if they are getting a "higher" voltage there is something wrong with your alternator, corrosion/loose wiring connections, or potentially your battery.
I'd suggest making sure your battery terminals and wires are clean with no corrosion. Check your ground connection on the engine to make sure it isn't loose and you are loosing your ground reference. Most autoparts chains (pepboys, autozone, etc), will do a free battery and alternator check on the car....under load. Have that done to make sure you don't have too high of a voltage from your alternator.

In the US at least, the low-beam headlights must be turned on for the fog lights to work. In all other headlight switch positions (daytime running lamps, parking lamps, or high-beam headlights), the fog lights will not illuminate, regardless of the fog lights' switch position.
