Camry 2007 - High beams won't turn off even when car is off.

Asked by Aug 14, 2011 at 03:13 PM about the 2007 Toyota Camry SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I disassembled the headlight relay module in the fuse box to find that it was very hot. This was even with the high beam fuses removed to keep my battery from draining. I also found that the turn stat could not turn the high beams off but it did work on every other component: i.e. low beams, parking lights. Even the high beam indicator on the dash was functioning correctly by way of the turn stat.

So I'm left to presume it can only be the relay board or the turn stat. Does anyone have any way to isolate which I need to replace?

It sounds like the headlight switch,it may feel good but when you turn off the light it is stock in the open position, if you have ruled out the relay.

I just spent two hours at a Toyota dealership and they were not able to find a solution. The technician told me they would have to dismantle the fuse/relay box and look under it to see if they could find a short some where. That would involve a cople more billable hours. I pulled the fuses and now have no daytime running lights or high beams. Still looking for the solution.

I have the same problem with my Camry LE 2007

same problem here, same solution. Toyota isnt all they are cracked up to be...I think they get a lot of "great reviews" and arent so great. Look around and they have enormous amounts of electrical issues on all their autos on all years. my hyundai's never had so many electrical problems and they tended to fix them the newer models. Toyota doesnt seem to fix any of their HiBEam problems or anything else. This should be a RECALL and Toyota foots the bill!!
