SOURCE: Left low beam is dim

The mechanic didn't hook up the ground wire. The system is using the other light as it's ground and when this happens it causes the other light to go out.

Check the ground wires

Check your DRL relay that is located in the fuse box. Also check the connector under the battery box for corrosion. (Not a smart place to put a connector) GM really messed up with the wiring on the 98-00 cavaliers headlights.

SOURCE: the headlights are very dim. not much difference

Have you checked the alignment? Park the car in front of a wall and check the lights direct generally horizontally in front of the car. It may be that they are shining up into the sky making it seem like they are dim.

Headlight bulbs can be lots of different types, xenon, halogen, but never LED. Sidelights are a lot less brighter, they can be simple argon bulbs to LEDs, or even Cold Cathode

SOURCE: Left headlight is dim - like it has a bad ground.

i think you hit the nail on the head with the ground problem,if you remove the bulb from the head light assembly,wiggle the black wire to see if the bulb gets brighter,if it does remove the bulb and clean and tighten the ground wire end.if it does not get brighter from a wiggle,connect the ground end of a test light to the positive post of the battery and probe the black wire,test light should light,if so replace the light socket.

SOURCE: headlight wiring problem

look under the dash on the steering column and find the dimmer control switch that the rod from the dimmer lever on the column operates and remove and replace that part

Highbeam lights very dull on 1999 Geo prism? Put new wiring plug(?) Any idea what the problem is? on and change dimmer relay with no luck! Ant


are you in USA.?
are you in Canada with mandatory DRL lighting?
we can not guess that,
DRL car is complex.
DRL has a 20 pin module just for DRL, crazy complex.
the FLASH on DRL grounds the HL directly bypassing DRL relay
so is super important the FLASH test.
There are 2 systems used, the toyota uses hot all time headlights
(via the HL relay and dimmer relay)


I need this?
is it dim on high, yes,
is it dim on low, no.
is it dim , when you push the lever to FLASH.??????
if flash works we know why it fails. see? (paths)
see?
if high beams and FLASH are dim, then DRL relay bad.
(can be other failures., for sure even wires bad)

its just a:
Toyota Corolla. Gen 6 to 8. (in snake skins)
if you have voltmeter this is child's play , really
finding point of voltage drop tells you what is wrong
find a shop with sparks guy? be best or by a meter and learn>?
guessing can take a long long weekend.
is labor time not a matter to you or down time?
ok I pulled up your cars HL schematic.
DRL is super complex
id pull the DRL module and look for burned pins
they love to do that DRL does.
so got DRL
and does FLASH work right>?

Dim head lamps and day light running lamps won't come on my 2000 Buick lasabre


Daytime Running Lamps
With the daytime running lamps (DRL) programmed to be on, the DRL will operate when the ignition switch is in the ON position, the gear selector lever is out of the PARK position, the headlamp switch is in the OFF or PARK position, and the ambient light sensor indicates daytime conditions. Battery positive voltage (B+) is supplied to the DRL relay coil through the underhood fuse block. Battery positive voltage is supplied through the underhood fuse block FOG/DRL Fuse to the DRL relay normally open contact. The DRL relay normally closed contact receives ground for normal high headlamp operation. When the dash integration module (DIM) determines that conditions are right for the DRL, the DIM grounds the DRL relay coil. This energizes the DRL relay coil and closes the switch to the normally open contact. Battery positive voltage (B+) is supplied to the LH and RH high beam headlamps in series. The high beam headlamps split the voltage and each lights at half intensity. Current will follow the path from the DRL relay to the LH high beam headlamp, HDHIBML Fuse, HDHIBMR Fuse, the RH high beam headlamp, then to ground.
Does your vehicle have
Twilight Sentinel
The twilight delay switch in the headlamp switch is supplied a reference voltage from the instrument panel integration module (IPM). It is supplied a reference ground from the IPM. The switch is a potentiometer that resistance varies as the switch is moved. The IPM receives an input voltage proportional to the resistance of the potentiometer. The IPM sends a class 2 message to the dash integration module (DIM) indicating the on/off status and delay length for the twilight sentinel. With the twilight sentinel in an ON position, the DIM will automatically control the headlamps on/off status depending on the nighttime/daytime status of the ambient light sensor. The DIM will use the twilight sentinel delay length to know how long to keep the headlamps and park lamps on after the ignition switch transitions from ON to OFF during nighttime conditions.
If you don't know about these things you best bet is to take it to an ASE certified repair shop or the dealer .

No headlights on dim only work on bright


old post.(day)
low beams, they are.
both low beam lamps.dead but are PARK/tail dead too?. (a key fact needed here to save time finding cause)
there are more that one cause.
but fuses are first, some cars have 2 fuse.
one for highs and lows.
or for left and right.
they do that so at least some lights work and not all go out at once, on a dark rainy night on a country road (or cliff road)
GEO, the car brand GEO is sold mostly in USA and Canada
if in CANADA the law says its DRL lamps.
in canada they have a Drylight Running lamps and laws and have a unique controller for that (DRL module) and can fail and mess up lamps. so GOT DRL>?
on this car the fues box shows, left and right HL
the next question is does it run a relay.
answer,
DRL, the DRL module runs low beams totally so that be first.
and its DRL relay.
non DLR metro, works like this
im reading the online schematics for you, and so could you.
the no-DRL is brutally simple.
the fuse runs the lamps direct, means lamps hot all the time.
the park and head light switch, grounds the low beam wire feed.
no relays , magic , DRL just a simple switch, in the combo switch.
for you or others seaching Metro head lamps.
here is the schemo.
red/wht wire must be 0v on low beams if not switch bad.
if g200 is good, but g200 is used in highs so can NOT BE BAD.
as you can see the switch grounds the HL lines below.
to make the lamps GLOW,

Headlights wont work on dim, only bright


Check your head light bulbs, your truck has the dual filiment headlight bulbs one per side which does both high beam and low beam, 9007 bulbs.
If the low beam filiments are burned out only the high beam will work.
Also look into finding out if the headlight switch is gone bad.
The headlight module and or drl module maybe defective.
