    Hi Howard Veelle, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box?
    Year make model would be great. Also, you have power to the coil, do you know if you have power from coil to distributor cap?
    Have you checked the rotor for corrosion?

Headlights only work on bright

i had this happen with my dodge ram 1500. the guy i bought it from put 350 dollar moon lit lights in with leds and they looked impressive but the issue was that they didnt go bright and i could only see 40 feet in front of me and i was sure taping led flashlights would have done me more good that those stupid headlights. then i had the idea of if the brights work and the dims dont then that means no electricity is getting to the dims so i decided to bridge the power from the bright headlight to the dims and it made all four work. now they all work, and only on bright. so im figuring there is a issue with the wiring in the truck. so this is a temporary solution if you really need just plain old lights like i did because i live out in the country

check out the crank position sensor,if its bad it wont give any spark to the plugs.on the 4.0 models it located in the trans bell housing on the drivers side near the top.

I have no spark to my plugs on my Dakota

Hi, first check the 20 amp fuse D. If good, use a 12 volt test light to check for power on the positive coil terminal (green wire/orange stripe, key on). If no power, the problem is with the ASD relay ot ignition switch. If power, the problem is the timing signal from the PCM or the coil itself.
No coil power:
pull out the auto-shutdown relay and probe the socket with a 12 volt test light:
hook the test light clip to ground and probe the socket terminals. There should be one hot terminal (from fuse D) with the key off and 2 hot terminals with the key on (turn-on signal from ignition switch).
Move the test light clip to battery positive and probe the socket again.
With the key on, there should be one terminal that lights the light brightly (PCM turn-on signal) and one that light it dimly (load terminal)

If there is power to the coil, test the coil primary and secondary winding impedances using an ohmmeter. If the coil is good, test the crankshaft position sensor. Set the ohmmeter to the 1K-10K scale. Place an ohmmeter across terminals B and C (see the illustration). The meter reading should be open (infinite resistance). If a low resistance is read, replace the camshaft position sensor.
Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

When I turn on the bright lights, one headlight goes out. when I turn off the bright lights, the other headlight goes out

you may need 2 light bulbs. check real close, if they go out compltely or really dim.... if dim, you have a ground wire issue, if they go out completely the bulbs are bad.

the problem has to be wireing.checking with an ohm meter will not tell you for sure how much current the wier will carry so you need need to find where it starts and ends and disconnect bothe ends.put a jumper to ground in one end then hook a test light to your positive battery terminal,put in the other end of the harness and see if the light is bright or dim.

No spark

I assume you have already tested the (secondary ignition circuit) Locate your coil. Using a test light check for power at the small wires going to the coil, (primary circuit) Key on you should have a bright light, (battery power) I use a needle to insert into the back of the plug for this. Then check for power on the negative side of the primary coil wiring. (same plug) you should also have a bright light. Have someone crank the engine over and the light should flicker. If it doesn't flicker then you either have a broken timing chain so the distributer isn't spinning (Lift the cap and make sure the distributer is spinning.) or control problems. A spark igniter or wiring, or as a last resort ecm. If it does flicker then your coil is dead or coil wire is no good.
