Question about 2001 Chrysler Concorde

1 Answer

With headlights on, random occasional issue with interior lights (dash/stereo). They go from dim to bright, as if I had turned off the headlights. Don't believe headlights actually go off during this. Cycling the main headlight switch corrects the problem. Mechanic says multiple possible issues and won't commit to a course of action unless he "sees it happening".

Do a meter test on the battery test it with no lights on and no engine running should show 12.5volts. now do the same with engine running should be around 13-14 volts on idle if under 12 volts when engine is running or spikes in power were by keeps jumping up and down on the volts then the alienator is at fault. if all is fine. then you will need to check the earth's one under the battery. check them are good and clean. then there is the light switch and fuse you need to check them. look at the fuse if intacted. test it and at same time flick the fuse see if it stays good. failing all them and nothing wrong there must be a fault with the main line some were and that is going to take some finding. could be any were from the main fuse to each light unit.

SOURCE: Head lights will not turn on, fuel guage missing, radio turns off

This is an old post so I don;t even know if you still have the car, but here is what I know.

1) Your radio issue is probably a relay. It is a relay bank located above your glove box. The entire glove box assembly will have to come out. This relay is a little different in appearnace thatn the others as it is skinnier and taller. It is called the Brand Name speakers/radio relay.

2) Your dash readouts are due to a burned out bulb. These are not LED. They are regular 124 bulbs. They've burned out. Banging on the dash probably allowed the filament of in the bulb to touch and temporarily worked.

3) I have a similar problem with the headlights. My headlights turn on manually, but they don't turn on like they are supposed to via automatic photo sensor. When turned on manually, the doors open and the headlights are on. When I manually turn off the headlights, the doors don't close. I've checked everything and I was told it may have something to do with the Body Control Module. I am not completely sure as this research is ongoing.

1999 silverado gauge lights do not work


You probably already checked this but the simplest solution is the control used to turn on the interior lights and to dim your dash lights. It is a dimmer switch to the right of your headlight switch. If it is turned all the way down then you would have no dash lights and no headlight chime. Turned all the way up it turns on your interior lights. If this isn't your issue and if no fuses are blown then try to turn the dimmer switch all the way up with your headlights on. If the dash lights come on with the interior lights then your switch is fried and you may have a short in the interior light circuit.

2005 buick lacrosse cxl... dash lights and interior lights are going dim to bring to dim to bright very rapidly


First, check that the battery connections are clean and not corroded. If not look for the ground wires that connect to the chassis. Check to see if any are corroded or loose. Finally if that has no effect, you have a short somewhere in your wiring. The easy way to isolate it is to pull the fuses for each device one by one and see if the dimming stops. The last one to cause the dimming is the problem. If it happens when you hit a bump it also might be a ground fault in the interior car grounds....good luck!

Cruise turns off when we roll down the windows


Strange electrical problems can sometimes be attributed to a bad ignition switch. The battery should also be load tested, especially if it is more than 4 - 5 years old.

2007 Yukon XL, 1500 SLT, 4WD, headlights randomly go bright to dim and back very quickly


Yes this can be a normal condition caused by load being applied to the headlights and that lowers the voltage, the lites dim, then the load is removed and the lights brighten. Typical loads that cause this are AC climate control related. Have the Alternator load tested to confirm there is no problem in the charging system. Also have the battery tested, a battery that is starting to fail can cause this problem as well, a failing battery takes a huge amount of charging system power to keep it up, so that makes the lighting see higher spikes in voltage

How do i dim all my interior lights with the headlights off in my 2011 dodge charger


There should be an adjustment knob just to the left of the steering column that will adjust the brightness of the dash lights. The problem you will have is the Dash lights only activate when the parking lights or headlights are on with the switch unless you have automatic running lights which will activate the dash lights when the running lights activate.

Hwere is the switch for courtesy lights on floor?


The older cars have a dimmer switch built into the headlight switch panel that turns on and off the interior lights and the dash lights , in some cases it is the pull headlight switch light that one can turn up and down for bright and dim to off position.'There may also be a single thumb turn or twist turn light switch that controls the interior lights located on or around the headlight panel switch.

How do I turn off the interior lights that are now on continuously?


The dash light dimmer knob is turned on all the way bright dim the dash lights a little to turn off interior lights. When you go to dim the dash lights you might fill a click. That click is the farthest you can go before the interior lights go on.

Where is the fuse for the dash lights . the light are bright with key on. Go dull when the headlights are turned on


That is normal. They go bright because during the daytime the outside light is also bright so the lights compensate for the outside brightness by making your dash lights also bright. When you turn your headlights on it assumes it is nighttime and you don't need to have the brightness to see the dash lights so it compensates for this. If you want them to be dimmer, near the light switch there is a roller button to turn your interior lights on just roll that some and it will either make the dash lights brighter or dimmer.
