well, if you open your fuse block and find a blown fuse, you'll have an answer. what kind of halo;s did you get? if you got some cheap ebay ones, the led itself probably went out or something.

Do your dash lights still work when the running lights are on?
Should prolly run a relay for the halos to keep from blowing fuses and placing such a high load on the circuit.

don't have a clue, i don't own a box, but this kinda information is all right there in your owners manual.

it is probably under the hood in the engine bay. it will be a plastic box that should unlatch and open fairly easily.

your owners manual will tell you which fuse is for which circuit for your car. so you would look for that fuse, pull it out and see if the wire running through it is broken. if it is, that is probably why your running lights are out.

you might need to replace it with a stronger fuse because your halos might use more power than your original fuse was meant to break at.

i'm actually not that saavy with electronics, so you might want to talk to somebody like garage 1217, enginfineer, or squallheart, but i suppose they have better ways to spend their saturday nights.

NEVER replace a blown fuse with a larger one!!! That is good way to start your car on FIRE!!! Replace the fuse with the right one and put the halos on a relay triggered by the running lights. Easy fix bro.

any autoparts store, maybe even radio shack.

i'm just all over scionlife, regardless of forum, i just peak in on interesting sounding topics or things i don't know about because who knows, i might even learn something.

also, you did say the subject was an sos, so it sounded like you wanted some urgent help.

Use the running light circuit as a trigger for the relay and give the halos there own fused power source straight off the battery. This method insures you won't pop another fuse. Most relays have the terminals labled so it should be easy. Did the halos tell you how much current they would draw? You could go 1 size up in fuses like a 15 amp instead of 10 amp for example but that would be all.

can i actually go a size bigger? i dont think it draws too much power, and no it didnt tell me how much power.... ill update this with pics tomorrow of my headlights, for all you guys! btw it was a 10/red fuse that was blown, and i didnt have a spare... but my moms toyota highlander doesnt need a horn so i took hers! all better! i am not sure about how that relay thing your talking about would work.... sorry im not really savvy with electronics.... i just like toying with em. so let me know how that relay would work.... if you could word it differently, or explain w/ pics that would be very helpful! kk so everything is fine! seriously i gotta give a big hand to the SL community for reacting so fast... and flawlessly! kk thanks!

Just don't be tempted to go bigger than a 15 one tho. If it pops def go the relay route. Glad to help a brother out!
