SOURCE: 92 Toyota Camry Passenger side headlight only works with HigBeam

You need to get a volt meter at the headlamp plug (Wiring harness) to see if you got a ground, power from the low beam wire, and then power from the hight beam wire. It's the best place to start.

When headlights turned on the dashboard lights dim and after 5 minutes a warning sound comes on.


Sounds like your charging system needs some attention.
1st check battery for voltage should be 12.50 or better with car off
2nd, start car check battery for voltage again should be 14.0 to 14.75 volts.
3 with running turn on headlamps and check charging voltage again if your voltage dropped to battery voltage your charging system is not working.

Headlights don't work why?


Test the headlight switch as follows.
  • Move your car to a dark area, such as waiting until night or moving to a dark garage, to test your headlight switch.
  • 2Turn on your car, so you can see your dashboard lights. Note whether some of your dashboard lights fail to illuminate.


    • 3
  • Turn on your car's headlights. Note whether your car's headlights illuminate.
  • 4Press the high beam lever to activate your high beams. Note whether your high beams activate.
  • 5Put your car in "Park." Move to the back of the car. Note whether your parking lights are illuminated.
  • 6View any remaining driving lights, such as lights above the license plate. Note whether these lights come on.
    If more than one set of lights does not activate when you turn on the lights, you may need to replace your headlight switch. If only one set of lights does not turn on, try replacing the lightbulbs in that set and then retesting your car. If the lights still do not illuminate, you may need to replace your headlight switch.

    I have a 2003 Infiniti m45 and every time I turn the headlights on the dashboard lights gets dim what's the problem?


    There is nothign wrong with your car-when you turn on the headlights the car believes you are turnung them on because it is dark outside, so it automatically dims your dashboard lights for you (since it now thinks it's nighttime). Your car already has daytime running lights, so you don't need to turn your headlights on in the daytime-they come on automatically when the car is running. You can keep your dash lights dim or bright by adjusting the small black dial on the left side of the dashboard, whether headlights are on or off if you want to.

    Engine stalls(dies-down) upon blinking the headlights...


    you have a bad ground,or a battery voltage that is so low,that the 20 amps from the high beams circuit is pulling the voltage down so low that the ignition can not run properly.
    put on the rear defogger,does it do it? if not,look for the ground junction common to ignition and the high beam circuits.

    1992 Chevy Cav headlights and dashboard dim


    What you want to do is go to an auto parts store and get a current tester.
    You put it in line with your battery and keep removing fuses until the light goes out,then find out what components are on the circuit with the fuse.
    Often times its a glove comparment lamp or trunk light.
    Something that is trickle discharging .
