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.

Don't know the car, but sounds like a loose earth wire somewhere. check where your feet go and see if something hasn;t caught on a peddle or your foot. if you have had work done on car recently, find out where they worked and look around there.

Headlights dim after approx 5 minutes, then no further problem


Sounds like it's losing power somewhere from a loose connection. Clean and re-tighten the battery cable connections, check all the grounds you can find. Check alternator and starter connections for tightness. Get the trouble codes from the engine computer to see if they show anything helpful.
Good luck.

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.
