I mean no offense but you need to check the grounds on the body and motor. As rust developes it starts to loose a good contact and does not let the charging system work efficiently. Good luck and hope this helps.

if all other light are high in brightness, and 1 is dim, there is issue with the circuit, or the light getting ready to burn out, it also is drawing a little more current to the light.

Make sure the alternater belt is the correct tension....If its been recently replaced, it may have been a size too big. Have you also had the regulator checked for output?

2005 Dodge Caravan with Dead Battery. Replaced and new battery died. Took it in for service. Alternator checked out ok and Drain was within tolerance. Will still die if I let it sit for more than a...


Disconnect battery from vehicle overnight to check for internal battery drain.......just take one of the cables off.
If the battery is still up and starting the vehicle after being disconnected after a day or two......the drain IS in the vehicle and will have to be checked again.
Do it yourself.
Buy a cheap 12 volt test light.
Place it between the cable you removed before.
One end on the battery post and the other on the cable end.
Now....with the key off......
If the light glows brightly....you have TOO MUCH drain.
We want a dim glowing light.
The dim light is just the memory circuits in the electronics and OK.

With the doors closed....take out one fuse at a time until the light glows dim.......the fuse that dims the light is the problem circuit.
If no fuse dims the light...remove relays one at a time.
Remember....some fuses and relays could be in the engine compartment and under the dash.
If no relay dims the light disconnect ALL alternator wires.
Remember....anything that uses power will make the light glow ....keep those doors closed (we do not want interior light drain affecting the test ) and if you have a under hood light check it first by removing the bulb.
We do not want false readings.

Problems with dashboard lights


The switch that you are talking about... the dimmer switch, must not be working. If you have warranty left, i suggest you take it in. If not, maybe find a good auto wrecker, and replace the switch yourself. I'm guessing they'll be expensive.

My turn signals stay on


You have daytime runing lights. When you turn the signal off does it just stay on or does it flash? If it just stays on and you have some light dimming problems, it is more than likely a bad ground on the front signal sockets. This can be repaired by cleaning or replacing the sockets. Another cause of this problem can be traced to bad bulbs,a very easy fix.Good luck Moe
