Question about Cars & Trucks
Headlight dimmer is either on the floor left of the brake pedal or a function on the turn signal arm by moving forward 2 times per cycle click up on- click up off.. the actual switch is on top of the steering column just under the dashboard which requires the mounting bracket to be removed and the column lowered for acesss it is usually close to and just beside the actual ignition switch which is much larger in size..good luck..

SOURCE: Instrument panel lights fail to
One problem may be the orange bulb check. It's located next to the headlight relay on the driver side under the hood next to the fuse box. It's in a covered box too. The soldering gets tiny cracks from age/vibration. Needs to be replaced. Try ebay or your $aab dealer.

You need to take the vehicle back to whoever repaired it for there's a rod running down from your dimmer switch to the actual dimmer switch mounted above your ankles which should be white and/or green and it has two 5/16" nuts or 8 mm, same thing, and the headlight dimmer switch is slotted to move it up or down the column to make contact. You can do this yourself in loosening the bolts, turning on the headlights, and when they stay on, lock down one of the 8 mm bolts, then check the dimming feature and if it's still not correct, loosen the bolts just enough to move the switch (with the rod coming down from the steering wheel) just enough to "fine-tune" your adjustment.
