Dim headlights are almost always caused by a loose ground or corroded ground, the ground wires are near the head lights attached to the inside of the fender, check them, pull them off and clean them and the surface they attach to with sand paper.

Need to find lighting relay in a Discovery 1


The alternator is shot and is pumping out to much juice ... this has blown the bulbs and causes the relay chatter. I'm afraid it is a new alternator and bulbs :(

'03 Cavalier driverside headlight looked dim. Replaced bulb, lasted 1 day, then it looked dim, too. Bulb socket had burn mark. HELP!


When replacing headlight bulbs it's best to wear gloves as the oil from your skin can actually damage the new bulb. Spray out the headlight socket with some electrical cleaner and make sure the bulb is properly seated with no bent wires on the the bulb where it inserts into the socket.

2004 Pontiac Montana Brake Lights, Pwr Window and Cruise all Quit


The same thing happened to my 2002 Montana minus the power window problem.

The brake lights and the cruise control are somehow tied in together.

I went to the scrapyard and ripped off a couple circuit boards from an old Lumina ($25 for the set) since there were no Montanas on site.

The problem seems to be when one brakelight goes the bulk of the current transfers to the other light and will blow it too.

Anyways you said you tried replacing the circuit boards and it did not work so sorry I could not be of more help.

Low beam headlights not working on 2004 Pontiac Montana extended


You headlight lamp have a diffuser mechanism which allows it to flip between the hight beam and low beam feature of the bulb. In fact, you high beam will function even if the low beam is not working.

I would recommend the purchase of the new headlight lamp. It would cost you you any where from $15.00 per unit to get a replacement lamp
