Toyota Solara Cornering Light Issues
While cornering lights aren't as prominent headlights, they still play an important role in your Toyota Solara. As you know, they provide additional lateral illumination for your ride, which greatly helps when making turns or switching lanes. Your Toyota Solara cornering lights won't be able to do that though if problems plague them. Below are the said issues that you may encounter.
Clouded Cornering Light
Your Toyota Solara cornering light can become clouded, thus causing it to produce subpar illumination. If this has occurred to you, there's just one reason behind it-moisture. Moisture was able to enter your cornering light assembly through a gap, a crack, or a hole within the structure.
This issue shouldn't be a major cause for worry though since a clouded cornering light can be easily remedied. All you have to do is to detach the cornering light lens and wipe it clean with a piece of cloth or a rag. After you're done doing that, make sure that the cornering light lens is attached securely in place so that there won't be any openings in the assembly. If you've found holes or cracks, then you may have to replace the lens or the entire assembly.
If you find that your Toyota Solara cornering lights aren't producing adequate illumination, don't be too quick to put the blame on them right away. It's because there's a big chance that they aren't at fault, anyway.
The problem of faint illumination often stems from a faulty electrical system. Your Solara's battery or alternator may already be busted, thus your electrical system isn't able to generate enough power to support all of your car's functions. The insufficient power can of course result into the faint illumination displayed by your cornering lights. Needless to say, replacing either the battery or the alternator should solve this issue.
