The cavaliers have a wire harness that runs along the bottom of the core support that connect the left and right light functions together. They are prone to collecting road grime that causes corrosion on wire splices inside of it. Pull the wires from the plastic loom cover, remove black tape and repair splices with solider or **** splices. I would suggest doing all of them while you already have it apart. Re-tape whole length of harness to make as water tight as possible and put back into plastic loom

Headlights wont work on dim, only bright


Check your head light bulbs, your truck has the dual filiment headlight bulbs one per side which does both high beam and low beam, 9007 bulbs.
If the low beam filiments are burned out only the high beam will work.
Also look into finding out if the headlight switch is gone bad.
The headlight module and or drl module maybe defective.

My headlights do not work on brights.


You most likely need new bulbs, or a new fuse. Check the bulbs and see that the filaments aren't burned out. If you have dual beam headlights, there will be one bulb on each side with 2 filaments inside. If you have single beam headlights there will be 2 bulbs on each side. If they look alright, find out which fuse controls your hi-beams and see that it isn't burned out.

1999 Mazda Miata Headlight Failure


Notice how your headlights are protected under the hood by a suspiciously large rubber cover? Miatas hate humidity and condensation, from head to toe, including the headlights. I lost a headlight, was pulled over by a state trooper who told me to change it, and tested the brights all in one night. Of course, the brights worked, because they are actuated from a different circuit on the wiring harness that connects to the headlight through that massive rubber seal. If any amount of humidity or condensation has occurred, especially during a weather change, I cannot stress that enough, the first thing to fail is the normal headlight setting. I was already going to switch over to high-intensity bulbs, so I had a good excuse to crack open the headlight assembly (otherwise I wouldn't dare--Miata headlights are nearly impossible to change with a large pair of hands). I separated the old bulbs from their wires and proceeded to clean the connectors of the wires with an approved electrical connection cleaning solution (go to AutoZone). I then applied the conducting gel to the bulb to avoid corrosion and secure against future problems with condensation and was good to go. Make sure to give yourself many many hours to decipher the bulb assembly, as it was designed by someone whose sole intent is to make the job 150 times more difficult. Otherwise, cleaning the wiring assembly is a cinch.
