SOURCE: Dimmer lights will not come on but the bright

To keep the switch from arcing and wearing out, they use a relay. The dimmer switch turns the relay on and off, so does not use as much current. The relay is a small plastic box plugged into the fuse box, along with several other relays.

If you can dim the lights with the dimmer switch, but they won't stay on low beam when you release the switch, then the switch is bad and will need to be replaced. Hope this helps and good luck :O)

Headlights shut off while driving at night


Electrical fault, either the wires are grounding out somewhere along the line or there's a bad connection at the headlight. Check behind your headlight where the harness connects to the bulb. There is likely a bad connection there, if you pull the games off you'll likely see some blackened spot on one of the connections. An easy fix is some aluminum around the spade connector of the bulb to insure a complete connection. Recommend you take the car to have the harness and or bulbs replaced though as the aluminum can be a very temporary fix.

Dodge ram headlights wont work unless dimmer switch pushed


Could be the headlight switch or the dimmer switch.
I would check for voltage at the dimmer switch first.

Headlights dont work unless holding dimmer switch for bright lights


I would think the problem lies with the dimmer switch on the steering column, since this is a very expensive part please have a local dealer confirm my guess.

Headlights not working. They will come on if you hold the brightness/dimmer switch on the column back. Headlight switch and dimmer switch have been replaced, still no lights.


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.

NO headlights when turn ed on but lights will work if you hold th


Are these interior lights our the headlights? If it is the interior lights, you should pull the dimmer switch and check for a bad connection especially the ground connection on the back side. If that is okay, you may need to buy a new switch. If it is the headlights, check for a bad relay.
