Question about 2005 Chevrolet Impala LS
Likely when the brights switch was replaced, something got tangled, or misplaced. It likely worked fine for a while, then the connection was messed up when it was bumped or something. I would read the repair manual to be sure of the wiring diagram. It should be an easy fix, just have to pull off the outer switch cover I think, or the steering column cover. Not sure of the switch on that exact model.

SOURCE: Dim Headlights/headlight problem
if that is the case i believe your altenator is bad and draining the battery the altenator runs the engine and charges the battery the battery starts the vehicle and runs all the electronics and accessories the regulator is not working and therefore the battery is not getting charged and as the vehicle is running and the lights are on they will get dimmer and dimmer until there is no voltage left in the battery. reploace the altenator and the problem will go away...please rate this

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.

First, it is a factory setting that turns the running lights off when the bright lights are turned on, so that's nothing to worry about. Now the headlight issue could just be a bulb. If this has a headlamp for both high and low, it is possible it just blew the high beam part. If there are seperate lamps for high and low beams, then try replacing the bulb. It should not be an electrical problem unless you had to remove or disturb alot of parts to change the wires and plugs. Let me know if this helps :)
