I've found more than once that a faulty ground wire somewhere close to the light is what causes it to dim.

SOURCE: i have a 2000 monte

Your blend door actuator (also called air temperature actuator) motor is bad. It's pretty common. The bad part is located under the dash on the driver's side, toward the center of the dash It is mounted on some AC ducting, with the top of the unit facing toward the driver's door.
Here's a forum thread discussing this issue (not monte carlo specific, but the pics of the part and the general location of said part is nearly identical. They take out a passenger side actuator motor in the thread. Driver's side is similar):,41201.0.html

For a temporary fix if you're slightly inclined to working on cars, get under the dash and remove the plastic covers hiding the wiring in the driver's foot well (a couple push tabs and a couple phillips screws is all that holds it up). Locate the driver's side actuator motor (it's partially hidden by some wiring, you'll have to reach up there toward the center of the dash to find it), remove the unit (2 gold colored phillips screws and a black connector, a #2 phillips bit in a quarter inch socket applied to a small quarter inch drive ratchet works well here), and then manually flip the blend door to the "cold" side (there will be a little knob sticking out of the AC ducting that you'll see once you take off the actuator motor. Just grab that knob as gently twist left or right to make the air temp hot/cold).

Here is a cheap place to get a replacement:

GM wants $100 for the same part, not including the labor to install it (probably $45 to $90 for labor)

Good luck.

That slushy brown stuff is signs of a blown head gasket. Have a code scanner hooked up to find out why the light is on, it will probably show coolant temperature sensor. Just out of curiosity, check the pvc valve (if your car has one), and see if it's clogged. If it is replace it, the crank case is not getting ventilated.

My 2001 monte carlo dim lights both went out at the same time but the brights still work checked the bulbs theyre all good. this will be the second time i will have to replace the combination switch if it...

Headlights are mostly individually fused these days and details are usually found in the vehicle handbook.

I used to work on taxis quite a bit and I noticed the drivers who smoked had many more electrical problems including switches than non-smoking drivers.

My headlights on my 2000 monte carlo does not work

Day time running lights run low voltage to the high beam bulbs so it sounds to me like you need two new bulbs or you need to check the fuses and see if any need replaceing.

Where is the headlight relay on a 2005 monte carlo

I found the relay behind the drivers side fuse box. There is a plastic clip on the top of the box that must be depressed while you slide the entire fuse box out. It is on the backside toward the front of the vehicle. This was on the 2000. Good luck

2000 monte carlo dim lights stopped working

First check the bulbs, If the bulbs are o.k. It might be the dimmer switch. I think on a 2000 monte the dimmer switch is built into the multi-function switch.

Headlights go off when lights are switched from dim to bright ...

You need to buy a whole new clicker, same thing happened to me, eventually your bright lights will end up not clicking off or vice versa. and your turn signals will mess up. Get a new clicker, it's the easiest solution, but not the cheap one. mine was like 200$
