theres a relay in the side panel, behind the drivers seat-where the left rear passanger armrest is . Take off the panel and there are 2 10mm nuts holding a bracket with 3 or 4 relays on it. Find the one that says headlight relay ,thats the one you'll need to replace. Toyota wants $110.00 for it so i'd advise a trip to the junkyard. I got mine out of a celica gts( Im sure a celica would work also). Try to get one out of a non-sunroof car as they tend to leak and kill the relay.
Hope this helps,
Brian
suffered with this problem for a year before i found a good relay :mad:

sorry to bring this thread WAAAAAY back, but is this information accurate?

if so, I might just have fixed the last big problem on my 85.

Yup Yup!

Very accurate, and a very common problem. These relays get wet and corrode and cause all kinds of problems. Anyone with an 85 that has unexplained problems with headlights, taillights, alarm, should be looking at these relays for problems.

i ask because the fuse for the headlight motor keeps blowing. well every time i start to put a new fuse in, as soon as i make it touch the connector it blows.

any ideas?

turn them off so its not trying to turn them on right away, somehow disable the circuit till the fuse is in. thats what i've had to do for some wiring before and for stereos.
