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

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?

Cluster is pretty much non serviceable. It's a circuit board problem that will have to be fixed by a cluster repair shop.

SOURCE: DRL WORK BUT NO TAIL LIGHTS OR DASH LIGHTS AT NIGHT

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.

I repair Envoy instrument clusters for a very reasonable amount and have a free 12 Year Guarantee on my work, you can see my site at www.DrSpeedometer.com

Why causes my park lights to remain on?


This could be caused by a number of things. Does the car have security.? Do the lights go out after a period of time? Some vehicles have a Sensor to turn the lights on and off. Some vehicles are equipped with daytime running lights. I do not think the latter is the problem. It could just be a problem with the light switch. Please comment and let us know if the lights stay or go off after a period of time

My daytime running lights stop working


There is a DRL (Daytime Running Light) Module located in the Fuse Box area under the hood, just remove it and purchase a new one and your DRL's will work fine again.

I need to reset the maintenance required light on my 2005 toyota camry le


To reset the light, insert the key and turn to "ACC". Hold down the odometer button while turning the key to the "ON" position. Continue to hold the button and watch the odometer. Dashes in the odometer window will count down until there are no more dashes in the odometer window.

What does the "maintenance required" light mean and how do you reset it on a 2004 toyota solara?


Maintenance light is turned on when your vehicle is due for service. It is set to turn on at a certain mileage. At minimum, you need an oil change service and what ever is required at your mileage interval. Resetting the light is as simple as, Ignition Key in the off position, press and hold the odometer button, Turn the ignition key on and continue to hold the odometer button for at least ten seconds. If properly done, you will see dashes across your odometer as you hold the button, until the odometer reading reappears. Hope this helps. Please leave feedback.
