The dimmer switch control is next to the headlight switch. Can you make the lights brighter by turning up the control ?

SOURCE: I have a 2000 Dodge Durango 5.9 R/T. The check

First off, recharge the battery overnight before it freezes. It appears that you have lost the alternator function. As soon as the battery is fully charged, take the vehicle to your favorite auto parts store and have them check the alternator. Don't use any of the accessories to lighten the electrical load on the battery. If the alternator has a shorted diode, it will cause a fuseable-link to burn out in the heavy wire running from the alternator to the starter solenoid terminal (battery cable side). Hopefully, the link is hanging out of the wiring loom so that it won't be hard to find. If the link is burned out, replace it with an exact replacement. These things act as fuses. And of course, replace the defective alternator as well. Be sure to disconnect the negative battery cable before replacing the alternator and other work. Take the car back to the parts dealer after repairs and have them clear the 'check engine lite' with a scanner and verify the validity of your repairs. Hope this helps!

I have a 2003 Infiniti m45 and every time I turn the headlights on the dashboard lights gets dim what's the problem?

There is nothign wrong with your car-when you turn on the headlights the car believes you are turnung them on because it is dark outside, so it automatically dims your dashboard lights for you (since it now thinks it's nighttime). Your car already has daytime running lights, so you don't need to turn your headlights on in the daytime-they come on automatically when the car is running. You can keep your dash lights dim or bright by adjusting the small black dial on the left side of the dashboard, whether headlights are on or off if you want to.

The dashboard lights on my 2005 highlander are dim, how can I fix this.

I belive the dimmer switch for the dashboard lights are located left of the speedometer. It looks like an odometer switch. Turn it to the right and that should make the instrument cluster and lights brighter.

I hope that helped. If you have more questions about this just ask.

Dashboard lights are very dim

I assume you have turned the dial on the dash and have them set to the brightest setting? If you have, and they are still too dim, then you probably have a bulb burnt out.

I have a 02 dodge durango and on the left side one of the signal ligths won't work, one of the headlights on dim won't work, the top left brake light won't work, and now i have no back up lights.

I don't know this for sure but a friend of mine has a 02 dodge truck and had about the same problem.
I believe they had to replace the light controller unit
Hope this helps please leave a testimonial if it does

05 Renault Grand Scenic. No dipped headlights. Bulbs and fuses OK

Are u sure that the bulbs are OK? I had no dipped lights on mine, & thought it must be a fuse or another electrical fault. It turned out, both bulbs had gone. I think this often happens when one side goes, the other soon follows.

Which fuse controls the interior lights

First, make sure the interior light switch has not been left on, either at the light itself (press to turn on, press to turn off) or at the headlight switch.

And don't forget the dimming feature in Chrysler products, where the lights don't just go off, but delay after closing the doors.

The fuse would be the interior lights fuse, most likely at the drivers end of the dashboard.
