  • Large drops of water are built up on the inside of the lens.
  • Water has built up inside the headlight.
  • LED lights

The parking light, side turn signal light, stop/tail lights, tail lights, high mounted stoplight and rear side marker lights consist of a number of LEDs. If any LEDs burn out, take your vehicle to your Toyota dealer to have the light replaced.

CAUTION

  • Replacing light bulbs

  • Turn off the headlights. Do not attempt to replace the bulb immediately after turning off the headlights.

    The bulbs become very hot and may cause burns.

  • Do not touch the glass portion of the light bulb with bare hands. When it is unavoidable to hold the glass portion, use and hold with a clean dry cloth to avoid getting moisture and oils on the bulb.

    Also, if the bulb is scratched or dropped, it may blow out or crack.

  • Fully install light bulbs and any parts used to secure them. Failing to do so may result in heat damage, fire, or water entering the headlight unit. This may damage the headlights or cause condensation to build up on the lens.

  • While the low beam headlights are turned on, and for a short time after they have been turned off, metal components at the rear of the headlight assembly will be extremely hot.

    To prevent burns, do not touch these metal components until you are certain they have cooled down.

 

CAUTION

  • Discharge headlights

  • Contact your Toyota dealer before replacing high-intensity discharge headlights (including light bulbs).
  • Do not touch the high-intensity discharge headlights high voltage socket when the headlights are turned on.

    An extremely high voltage of 30000 V will be discharged and could result in serious injury or death by electric shock.

  • Do not attempt to take apart or repair the low beam discharge headlight bulbs, connectors, power supply circuits, or related components.

    Doing so could result in electric shock and serious injury or death.

  • To prevent damage or fire

Make sure bulbs are fully seated and locked.
