That sounds like a bad headlight switch.

SOURCE: 2004 Cavalier Day/dim lights not working

I finally got mine fixed!! It was the crossover wires between headlights(the wires that run in front of the radiator). One wire was torn into. Spliced them and taped back together. Hope this works for you!! I also used something called wire caps that help hold the spliced wires together. I found this solution on yahoo.com search engine where someone else had suggested this. My only problem was no dim lights, but all the other lights worked fine.

There are two possible cause of dim display.

On the deluxe trim level of the Impala the is light sensor. When the sensor mis-calibrated the light will not be at the level you want.

As a test,use a small flash light and aim to the sensor and see is the circuit act according it.

====
The dimmer light is a VERY CHEAP component. I will glow it out with compress air 1st. Turn the dial back and forth 20-30 time in rapid motion will help remove unwanted carbon,

===
Use a eletrical contact cleaner to clean all contacts.
===
Is the headlight in OEM specification?

After market headlights may draw more amperage and cause low power for smaller bulbs.

SOURCE: headlights flicker on and off at times .interior

the first thing to check is if u have a steady ground wire this can cause the flicker so can a low battery that doesnt have it full health a semi attach wire can do the same
to check ur ground look for corrosion at batt post (black wire) follow it to where it mounts clean or replace if needed.

My 1996 Nissan pickup has a short but I can't find it no dash lights tail lights and when I change my headlights from dim to bright the vehicle cuts out ?


These can be a pain in the backside, best answer I can give you is to grab your trusty digital volt meter and start tracing your wiring harness, you'll need obviously, the DVM, a wiring schematic of your whole vehicle and a whole lot of patience.

Dim dash lights


Check your owners manual. There must be a way to dim the dash lights. Should be a dial or a knob somewhere.

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.

1985 Nissan pickup- All headlights test good. On


Sounds like your ground wire is broken (which could be broken, overheated, loose or corroded) If the color of the copper has changed(looks gray) or is corroded then you must replace the plug.

"maintenance required" light is stuck on in 1991 Jeep Wrangler


On the dim dashlights, there is usually a rotory switch that you can turn to increase the power to the dash lights. In earlier vehicles it was part of the headlight switch and you just turned it one way or the other to adjust the brightness. In newer vehicles it is a switch like a knob sticking out of the dash on its side that you push up or down to change the brightness of the lamps.

The Maintenance Required light is probable on because the vehicle has hit the 50,000 mile mark and it comes on automatically so that you take the vehicle in for maint. of the emission system. If this is the case there is usually a way to reset it untill another 50,000 miles go by. I would read the owners manual, or better yet pickup a Chilton manual for the vehicle and see if it says how to reset the light. You also may want to have the vehicle checked to see if any trouble codes have been signaled. Good Luck, RAC
