SOURCE: Dim Headlights/headlight problem

if that is the case i believe your altenator is bad and draining the battery the altenator runs the engine and charges the battery the battery starts the vehicle and runs all the electronics and accessories the regulator is not working and therefore the battery is not getting charged and as the vehicle is running and the lights are on they will get dimmer and dimmer until there is no voltage left in the battery. reploace the altenator and the problem will go away...please rate this

SOURCE: Headlight one side works on bright the other side works on dim

Try swapping the headlight bulbs or buying a known good bulb and testing that way. Sounds like a shorted bulb filament issue.

SOURCE: Headlights not working. They will come on if you

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.

I'm guessing you mean high beam on left side not working. All headlamps are on separate fuses for safety reasons so check the LH high beam fuse then check the bulb holder for corrosion or dirty contact with bulb. It won't be the dimmer switch as the wire from the switch goes to a relay which operates both lights

On these cars the headlights get power from a right and left fuse and the headlight / dimmer switches provide the ground circuit. Both headlights are connected to one ground wire for high and one for low beam. So if one works and the other does not, the problem should be in the wiring before the headlight switch. Red is for high beam and red-white is for low beam. You should be able to jumper the red-white wire on the right headlight and make the low beam circuit for both sides work to test it.

Bright lights turn on when making right turns


The solution is to replace (or possibly repair) the turn signal/dimmer switch.
The switch has three contacts and a slide which control the bright lights and is filled with dielectric grease. When the temperature goes down the grease gets a little thicker and the slide won't work very well.
The switch has two screws and one plug and can be accessed after removing the top steering column cover.

If you have separate bulbs for the low and high beams(4 light system), if you pull the turn signal and hold it, all 4 lights will stay on until you release the turn signal. You need to replace the bright bulb on the right side and the low bulb on the left side. If your headlights only have one bulb on each side, then you will have to replace both of them to get everything to work.
