if you are saying that the dash lights go dim and bright while driving it could be a loose connection of the wiring harness behind the speedo nacal.

While driving @ nigh, lights dimmed, and eventually engine died. It was previously having startup problems. New starter installed before above problem occurred.


Dim lights while driving means your car is running off the battery and the alternator is shot, which is why it's hard to start and the lights go dim, you drain the battery while driving and the alternator is not charging it back up.

Lights are dimming, gauges are zeroing out while i'm driving. Could this be my alternator? Because car has new battery and starter.


If your battery is charge indicator light does not come on and battery is holding charge after a couple days of driving it is unlikely your alternator is faulty.
If the lights are dimming on youe meter cluster only, it could be a bad connector to the meter cluster.
If your head light are dimming it could be a bad battery connection or the alternator.

Issue with dash lights dimming while driving,


If the battery and alternator tested fine. I would have the charging system rechecked when engine is hot and at high rpm's. This way the checks are being done as if you were driving and driving for a long time. Alternators can work fine when cold but weaken when hot or stop working. This problem is not rare but only is seen occassionly. Unless it was checked at an electrical shop the average shop doesn't run these tests for they don't see the problem often enough to automaticly run them at all times. Good luck and let me know how you make out.

Lights dim while driving


Have your charging system checked. I had a similar problem with a chrysler van - the lights would brighten and then dim periodically. it turned out to be the battery.
