If your battery and alternator connections are clean and tight, then it is often a weak alternator. Time to have it tested.

I recommend getting an actual voltage, ampres check to see what the alternator is putting out, volts and amps. You should be able to get the charging, battery load test and the starter draw all tested together. That's where I would start.

check for voltage at the battery with the engine running. You should see 14 plus volts. Now turn on the lights, bower motor, and whatever else you can to put the maximum draw on the battery. If the voltage drops below 13 volts the alternator is bad.

My Headlights are so dim that I cant drive at night in my 1997 Chevy Blazer. How Can I get them brighter?


You have to go back to the route cause & time
frame of the problem

Did you check voltage & ground at each lamp connector,
when they first got dim & you started to resolve things?

Why converter to a different bulb?
I don't know the current draw of the oe vs: the H4,but
that has to be considered

Obviously the alternator output would be up there at the
same time your checking lamp connector voltage.

Problem--Voltage Drop somewhere or too much resistance
somewhere,basic OHM's Law

How to use one to pin point testing spots in a electrical circuit ! A couple simple test's using a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter is probably all it would take to find the problem .

Flickering lights on 2001 Chevy tracker


I had similar problems, with dash board lights and headlights flickering, and the problem was a dying alternator. After I changed it, everything got back in normal. Also, a bad alternator eventually will kill your car's battery, too. I hope this will help you.
