The car is a 2012 Tacoma pre-runner. I got in it last night and turned on the headlights. The low beams came on just fine, when I pushed the lever forward to engage the high beams, the low beams went out and all I had were weak fog light. When I return the lever back to normal the low beams come on. I looked and there is only one bulb in each headlight. Not sure what is going on?

    Each bulb has 2 filaments, a low and a high, it is possible both high filaments are burned out. Also look for high beam fuses under the dash and under the hood. – Moab Apr 11 '18 at 16:19
  • Welcome to Motor Vehicle Maintenance & Repair! I'd suspect it's either a fuse as Moab suggested or the switch. I doubt it's the bulbs, but there is an outside chance of it being that. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Apr 11 '18 at 16:31
  • Oh I didn't think of that. I will check and get back with you! – Juan Fallas Apr 11 '18 at 19:34
  • @Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 what do you mean by "the switch"? Sorry, very car dumb over here... haha – Juan Fallas Apr 11 '18 at 19:36
  • No worries. We are all dumb until we know ... that's why we come to StackExchange :o) I meant the switch which controls the lights/hi-beams. I would suspect it's on the left side of the steering column? Most of them you push forward for continuous hi-beam. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Apr 11 '18 at 21:24
