Headlights and dash lights dim

My headlights and dashlights dim, however there is no pattern to the dimming. I've checked the battery cable and all is good.

    Check the alternator. If you have a big stereo it could be drawing to much power.

I just had found the solution to my dash light problem. The ground between the battery neg pole and the car frame was bad (broken battery holder) That ground signal also goes to the motor (that connexion was good) but the connection between the frame of the car and the neg pole of the battery was intermittent.

Dim dash lights


Check your owners manual. There must be a way to dim the dash lights. Should be a dial or a knob somewhere.

Dashlights are dim


I know this sounds trivial, but make sure you or someone didn't inadvertently bump the dimmer switch. If you slide the dimmer all the way up and even past the slight little catch so that they are continously on high and still seem dim, there could possibly be an issue with the dimmer switch itself.

Have your charging system checked. I had a similar problem with a chrysler van - the lights would brighten and then dim periodically. it turned out to be the battery.
