Question about 2004 Toyota Camry
I have a 2004 Camry. My DRL work, however when I turn on the head lights the interior lights stop working (which means I cannot see the odometer to see how fast I am going at night). When I turn the lights back to DRL everything works again. Is this a fuse replacement issue? If so, do you know what the fuse number would be? Thank you

Do you have a interior light dimmer/switch next to the head light switch? rotate it until interior light comes on,then back just enough to them off. Now turn on headlights; Can You see me now? Hope thats IT, Good Luck

either the headlight switch is defective or the dimmer is, it can't be anything else, do the hi beams work ok, have you tried wiggling the dimmer switch to see if the low beams flicker?

there was a recall on the headlight switch up to 06 camrys,find out if your car is affected by calling Toyota with the chassis no,and month of build

I FIXED THIS ISSUE IN MY CASE. NOT TOO HARD IN A FEW MINUTES.
I didn't know there was another fuse box in the crevice of opening the passenger door. It helped when I found that out in the owners manual.
Narrowed things down by checking to see if I had rear parking/running lights since I heard this was also the dash light fuse.
*I did not have these rear parking lights coming on, just when I would apply the brake*
Sure enought that 15A fuse was blown, its in the passenger side box. I heard in my searching for a fix that this fuse also controlled dash lights. Sure enough it does! ( I have 2000 base model 3.4 impala)
SO, Things worked after that, UNTIL I MOVED MY ASH TRAY IN AND OUT A FEW TIMES!!
The dash lights flickered a bit when I moved the ashtray in and out and after a few times I heard a POP! and no more dash lights just like before. Fuse was blown, and I didn't have another 15A that wasnt plugged in making something work. My ashtray light had not been working for the last while by the way.
SO, I pulled out a 15A fuse from the the slot that said CIG on the passenger side, I never use the 12v ports anyway. (used it for the rear parking light/dash light slot to get the dash lights working again.)
*But, the dash lights looked a little lazy, meaning I could see a bit of a powerup happening over 1-2 seconds to full illumination*
SO. then I went in the book and found out what fuses that had anything to do with the ash/aux outlet sliding tray which was good at popping the fuse that lit up the dash. I wanted to disable the ashtray light and 12V ports in the tray to be safe.
I already pulled the appropriate 15A fuse on the passenger side which I used to bring the dash and rear parking lights back. But also, I decided to remove the 10A fuse on the drivers side that was for the accessory outlet. ( it might have been labelled CIG?)
Dash lights come on fast and solid now, sliding the tray does not have an influence or cause flickering.
My car is old enough that I don't care about having to rearrange fuses to make things work, If end up needing the 12v ports I can put the 10A fuse back in since the tray needs to be held open anyway.
I hope this helps.

This issue is caused by faulty motors inside your Envoy instrument cluster and can only be repair by taking out the instrument cluster and replacing the motors which requires de-soldering and soldering tools and the correct replacement parts.
