Question about 1997 Dodge Neon
My headlights only seem to light about 25 feet ahead of the car. I cannot see lines on road at night. How cann I get more light ahead of me?
Headlight bulbs lose their brightness over time. if the bulbs havent been replaced in a few years it might not be a bad idea to do so. also make sure none of the brackets or headlight assemblies (also where the adjusters are) are not broken or bent. there should be some kind of screws behind the headlights that you can turn to adjust the headlights. best to do this with the lights shining on a light colored wall on level ground. be careful not to aim them too high as you may endanger yourself by blinding oncoming traffic.

First of all is the headlight on your car free of oxidation.Lens cover should be clear not Foggy,Yellow.or Hazy.Most common problem when visibility is poor it;s because over time the headlights tends to oxidized.Hope this helps.But if your light is mis-alligned check with haynes manual for proper adjustment.

On the back of the headlight their is a bolt which you could turn it one way and it lowers the headlight the other way it picks it up.

There will be adjustment screws located on at least two different spots surrounding each headlamp. By turning these screws you move the angle of the headlamp. Most shops will do this at a very resonable rate, I say this because improper headlamp angle may lead to a ticket, or at least a warning. To say the least, they have to be at specific angles and heights. Good luck.

SOURCE: Headlights don't work.
There is a circuit breaker inside the headlight switch body. It gets weak over time and use. The breaker is actually mentioned in the owners manual. A new switch is about $75.00 at the local parts store. You must remove the front of the dash to change the switch. Mine would go off and then in about 30 seconds reset and the lights would come back on. I would be driving down the road with my headlights flashing as the circuit breaker opened and closed. New switch = problem fixed.

The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly,
behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator
You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well
Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)
For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.
For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.
