Common Signs of Faulty Toyota Camry Altezza Tail Lights
As multi-function lamps, the Toyota Camry Altezza tail lights are responsible for three things. First, they allow you to be seen under low-visibility conditions. Second, their included brake lights notify other drivers behind you when you are stopping or slowing down. Last but not least, their turn signals advise others when you are turning a corner or are changing lanes. Seeing how crucial these components are, you should understand why it is important to be on the lookout for signs of trouble. If you don't know what exactly to look for, here are some common symptoms of bad tail lights.
One altezza tail light is not working
If one tail light is not working but the other one is lit up, then the bulb of that affected component must have burnt out. Simply replace it with a new one-make sure to have it tested at the place you bought it-and test the tail lights again. If the new light bulb doesn't light up, probe the component's socket and check for power. You can do this by using a test light or a multimeter. If you found power in the socket, then the problem could be a bad ground wire or connection. If not, visually inspect and probe the wire along the socket's length until you find a power source.
Both altezza tail lights are not working
When you turn on the tail lights and none of them are working, there must be a problem with the fuse. Open the fuse box panel, which is located underneath your car's steering wheel. Using a fuse puller that's found on the panel lid, pull out the fuse for the tail lights and make sure that it's not popped. If it is blown, replace it with a new one. But if it's not, then put it back and check the wires.
One altezza tail light starts to dim
When you hit the brakes and you learn that one altezza tail light starts to dim, there may be several problems causing this. First, check and clean the fuse terminals on the affected side. If the tail light still dims after cleaning it, verify that all of the component's wires are attached correctly. Make sure all the altezza tail lights' wires on both ends are in their proper spots as well.
