    Default head lights issue in my corolla

    hi,guys few days back i got fog lamps installed in my altis before installing fog lamps the head lights were working very well and high beam was just extra ordinary(working Excellently) and from 2 to 3 days head lights have made me blind the light is so poor and high beams is also not so good.

    it seems like that the light's need to be adjust or some thing else please guide me and please share any experience if your headlights also failed after installing fog lamps.

    Are they using the same power supply cable?
    If so, that can be a problem, wait for some expert to comment.

    badly aligned headlamps are of no use - but they dont just misalign unless you fiddle with the screws on it.

    Did you install Fog lamps yourself? or did you watch whoever installed the lamps.

    You fog lamps are sharing available current with your head lights. All you need is a set of relays (as called by auto-electricians in fact these are current amplification circuits) and your head light/high beam will work perfectly

    Naveed is right, your fog lights are connected with the same wiring of head lights.The wire guage is not enough to carry current for the bothe.Have a relay fixed asap or your wiring could caught fire. It may alredy heating up when you turn on the fog and head lights.

    @rusty_racer94 and Xulfiqar
    the connection for fog lamp was taken from the battery and additional fuse was also attach and I was supervising the whole process done by the person installing fog lamps them i got fog lamps installed from Mughal Autos at mantogmory road

    @Naweed and shazaryab
    I think you are right because I have to turn dim lights on before turning on the fog lamps but the connection was taken from battery!

    @Levin,rizwan400 and margellar
    just to fill the space provided for the fog lamps in the car I installed the fog lamps i don't know but why Toyota guys don't give factory installed fog lamps in altis

    @Jz
    the battery is in good condition and the battery is stock provided by Toyota my car is only 20000 km driven so battry is good

    please advise me what to do should i go to toyota guys or back to mughal autos at mantogomry road?

    are you using the fog lamps and headlights at the same time? if yes then the current sharing issue otherwise check wiring.

    just relay will come in 60-100 Rs, it will handle such issues specially if u add any electrical/electronic component to your cAr, always add relay,fuses etc. with only good wiring

    as i found detail on google:
    A relay is an electrically operated switch. Many relays use an electromagnet to operate a switching mechanism mechanically, but other operating principles are also used. Relays are used where it is necessary to control a circuit by a low-power signal (with complete electrical isolation between control and controlled circuits), or where several circuits must be controlled by one signal.


    Relays are used to and for:
    • Control a high-voltage circuit with a low-voltage signal, as in some types of modems or audio amplifiers,
    • Control a high-current circuit with a low-current signal, as in the startersolenoid of an automobile,
    • Detect and isolate faults on transmission and distribution lines by opening and closing circuit breakers (protection relays),
