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

Fig. 3: If equipped, open the headlight access panel by sliding the latch and lifting the panel upwards

- Open the vehicle's hood and secure it in an upright position
- If necessary, open the bulb access panel by depressing the latch then lifting.
Fig. 5: To remove the bulb, grasp the retainer and rotate it counterclockwise to unlock it ...
Fig. 6: ... then withdraw the bulb from the headlight lens housing
- Unfasten the locking ring which secures the bulb and wire harness plug assembly, then withdraw the assembly rearward.
- Disconnect the electrical wire harness plug from the bulb and remove the locking ring as well.
Fig. 7: Unplug the wire harness from the bulb and either slide the retainer over the plug, or remove it from the bulb
- Before connecting a light bulb to the wire harness plug, ensure that all electrical contact surfaces are free of corrosion or dirt.
- Install the locking ring onto the bulb, then line up the replacement headlight bulb with the harness plug. Firmly push the bulb onto the plug until the spring clip latches over the bulb's projection.
Do not touch the glass bulb with your fingers. Oil from your fingers can severely shorten the life of the bulb. If necessary, wipe off any dirt or oil from the bulb with rubbing alcohol before completing installation.
- Position the headlight bulb and secure it with the locking ring.
- To ensure that the replacement bulb functions properly, activate the applicable switch to illuminate the bulb which was just replaced. (If this is a combination low and high beam bulb, be sure to check both intensities.) If the replacement light bulb does not illuminate, either it too is faulty or there is a problem in the bulb circuit or switch. Correct if necessary.
- Close the bulb access panel and the vehicle's hood.
Good luck... and remember rated my help!

you have to remove the whole headlight assembly, then pop off the front cover pull the old bulb out and put the new one in. reverse the process to re-install. there is a small plastic tab on the topfront of the headlight assembly, that is what you need to release to get the clear cover off and get inside.

The headlamp switch will cause the lamps to turn off. The switch heats up and turns the headlamps off. It will cool down and work for about 10 minutes and cut out,
