There could be a shorted headlight bulb. have some one check which headlight bulb is not glowing when you turn on the headlights.

My head light on my 1998 Chevy malibu went out but when I replace the bulb it still wont work


When you replaced bulb,all wiring and bulb connector looked good,no corrusion,wires not burned or strayed.With dim lights,means just a little power going to light bulb.Did you check the fuse in fuse box,could be a loose connectoion,check both fuses,left and right headlight.swap them out and see,if fuses are good then,it may be the headlight switch,which cost the most.Here's a link on how to replace.Here's the part.

My 2002 ford ranger running lights and instrument panel dont work


12V power passes through 15A fuse 33 (the one that keeps blowing?) in the battery junction box and on to the main light switch. When the main light switch is set to PARK, 12 volts is routed via the BRN lead to the park filaments of the dual park/turn lamps. These lights remain on when the headlight switch is turned to HEAD.

The main light switch gets its 12V input from 7.5A fuse 11 in the central junction box and the same 15A fuse (33) identified above. When the main light switch is set to PARK, 12 volts is routed via the BRN lead to the instrument panel dimming module and module output is applied to the panel illuminating lamps.These lights remain on when the headlight switch is turned to HEAD.

The input to fuse 33 is hot all the time so should read 12V. If you read 12V at the TAN/WHT connection with the fuse out, something is definitely not right. I'm sure you have noted that the fuse is common to the non-functioning circuits you mentioned.

One of the frame grounds on the headlight wiring harness is loosing connection with the body. Look for black wires attached to the body under the hook. One of them is loosing connection.

1998 dodge neon wont turnover and headlights go dim and start flickering when i try to start it


Sounds pretty "cut-and-dry" to me. You need to charge or replace the dead battery, and make sure your battery cables are CLEAN AND TIGHT and then check to make sure your alternator is charging correctly.

My head lights won't work. My running lights and dome light work and so does my turning singals.


Probably need to replace your headlight switch, it could be another problem but that is where I would start. The headlight switch is 2 or 3 switches in one, it turns on your parking lights, it turns on your interior lights and dims them too. Either that or it's your bulbs but they say you will never burn both headlights out at the same time. If you have a test light or a volt meter you could check the voltage at the headlight, that would eliminate the switch.

Head Lights go dim, instrument panel goes dim when I turn on my Headlights


Does it go completely black or just dim? Most displays dim when you turn the lights on to make the display darker so its not too bright. GPS and other displays do this. Do you have any problems with any other of the car's electronics?
