Toyota Corolla 99, headlights do not work

Car Headlights and High beams do not operate when switch is selected for either.

I have researched and determined the following;

- Headlights turn on automatically in the DRL mode (both left and right)

- Headlights stay on when parking lights are selected.

- Activation of high beams in any mode turns off headlights

- Headlights turn off when Headlights are selected.

- All fuses related to headlights are functional

- All relays related to headlights appear to be functional based on lights working in DRL mode and clicking when high beams or headlights are selected

I am at a loss regarding what to check next.

Any advise would be appreciated.

Craig.

Check the light switch.
Do the high beam indicator shows on dash when selected?
Get a scan to check for body control module trouble codes.

You need to know how to go about testing wiring circuits to know what could be the cause of the problem. Guessing from what you have stated, the most likely cause is a faulty light switch.
