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.

SOURCE: lights go dim

If you're running the car under a heavy load, lights will dim briefly (ie. you turn the ac on full)

With the engine running, the leads on the battery should read 13-14V

2005 buick lacrosse cxl... dash lights and interior lights are going dim to bring to dim to bright very rapidly


First, check that the battery connections are clean and not corroded. If not look for the ground wires that connect to the chassis. Check to see if any are corroded or loose. Finally if that has no effect, you have a short somewhere in your wiring. The easy way to isolate it is to pull the fuses for each device one by one and see if the dimming stops. The last one to cause the dimming is the problem. If it happens when you hit a bump it also might be a ground fault in the interior car grounds....good luck!

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.

Rear-window defogger wont work and radio cuts off when u put on


Sounds like a dead short. Disconnect the power to the radio and try the rear defog. Then to determine if it is the radio or the hater, disconnect the heater and put power to the radio. Another simple test is to, at night have the head lights on, turn the radio on see how much the lights dim. Then with the radio off, turn the rear defog on. Then try both. IF either one makes the head lights dim and not recover after a minute or so that devise is the shorted component. Check grounds on the radio and the heater.
