On a 2008 Mazda CX7! The low beams are very dim where it is almost hard to see even 10 feet in front of the car! The bright lights shine great! What could cause the lights to not shine bright even with brand new bulbs installed! The light housing looks fine and is not dirty! Its my friends car! I had very good eye sight but I would even not want to drive it like this!

SOURCE: no low beams bulbs are ok fuses look good

There may be a relay that operates the low beam lights, check the owners manual to see if there is a relay, you should be able to hear it go "click" if there is one.

SOURCE: How do I change the bulb in the low beam headlight

Removing the bulb in a CX7 is a real PITA. If replacing the right bulb, turn the steering wheel all the way to the right, or do the opposite for the left side. (or you can opt to remove the entire wheel on the corresponding side) You'll need to remove 3-4 of the fender well clips with a phillips screwdriver being careful not to break them. Once the screws are removed, pry back the wheel well cover to access the back of the headlamp to change the bulb.

SOURCE: 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.

FUSES FOR HEADLIGHT DIM AND BRIGHT


Assuming you Focus does not have DRL, setting the light switch to low beam energizes the low beam relay in the battery junction box, sending power through 10A FUSE 16 (L) and FUSE 17 (R) to the headlamp low beam elements

Mazda cx7. both high beams work and one low beam works. how can i tell if its a headlight or some other problem


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. These new lights have two types lin one bulb, one for the low beam and one for the high beam. Find the bulb that isn't lighting for the low beam and replace it with a new bulb. If it doesn't work, you need to check the wiring to that specific light. Since it is only one, the new bulb should work.

1997 F250 PICK UP. hit a deer had to replace doth head light lens.how do u know how high to adjust them.shine way to low


park on a flat surface about 18 feet from a wall. the little screw (4mm) at top of assembly will adjust you up or down. Check where you are at on both high beam and low beam they should be even and on low beam approx 3 1/2 to 4 feet off ground

My headlight on my 2005 Kia Sedona is shining in the top of the trees. How can I adjust it myself?


You will have to park the car on a level ground facing a even wall in front, mark the headlight level, straight line.about 10 feets gap to the wall. Now adjust the high beam to be just below the line by about a foot. The low beam will now fall almost to the ground.
This can be corrected with a even setting on both the head lights.

2002 lancer when headlights on high beam they dim they work fine on low beams but once you turn to high beam the power goes in half very dim


The quckest way to fix this is to fit a relay to your high beam light circuit. This will feed power directly to your high beams and cut out the high resistance of switch and wiring.

LOW BEAM LIGHTS ON 2009 FORD ESCAPE VERY POOR.


If the headlights are adjusted properly and it is still too dim to see properly, you can add a set of driving lights. A high quality set from PIAA or other high end lighting manufacturers will cost $200-$300, but it is well worth the investment. You can also swap the headlamp bulbs for a more powerful set, ask the parts store.

If your lights are shining at the ground right in front of the vehicle, I would suspect that they are out of adjustment and you should take the vehicle to a shop that can accurately align them.

My head light are real low how do i raise them?


There are adjusting screws on the headlight mounts, three of them I think. You may need a torx or allen wrench. Shine your low beams at the garage door or something and make the adjustments. Be careful not to let the low beams shine in other drivers' eyes. When you think it is right, park at night where you can walk in front of the car 100 feet or so and see that the low beams are not too high. The driver side light should point straight ahead, the passenger side light somewhat to the right.

1998 acura rl headlights dim


I would think ur low beams are burnt (the bulbs) because that dim light u see should be the daytime running lights, which are usually less bright that the lights turned on.
Verify ur fuses as well for the low beams.
Check on that for now and get back to me if u have questions.
