Ok you may have a bad charging system, a bad alternator. Here is my suggestion have your charging system checked. You can take this vehicle to an Auto-Zone and they will check for FREE the complete system. They will load test the battery and the alternator and perform a starter draw test. I believe that your alternator is NOT charging good enough. Good Luck

probably the headlight switch. also check the fuse panel. the dash lights should have their own fuse which if blown could indicate an electrical short.

Headlights only work on bright


i had this happen with my dodge ram 1500. the guy i bought it from put 350 dollar moon lit lights in with leds and they looked impressive but the issue was that they didnt go bright and i could only see 40 feet in front of me and i was sure taping led flashlights would have done me more good that those stupid headlights. then i had the idea of if the brights work and the dims dont then that means no electricity is getting to the dims so i decided to bridge the power from the bright headlight to the dims and it made all four work. now they all work, and only on bright. so im figuring there is a issue with the wiring in the truck. so this is a temporary solution if you really need just plain old lights like i did because i live out in the country

Dashboard lights


There is a dash light dimmer control, this controls the dash light brightness only when the headlights are on, check and make sure it is turned on, if it is then replace it, it is defective..
