You probably installed the wrong bulbs. Although the bulbs you bought may physically fit into place, they may be wired differently. Go to the auto parts store and look up the proper bulbs for your specific vehicle--don't just buy ones on the shelf that look the same. I have a friend who did that and the bulb he got was designed such that they high and low beams were reversed, so he always had one headlight on high and the other on low!

Instrument panel lights to dim in daytime


The dimmer switch only works when the headlights are on, When they are off there is a light sensor on the dash that takes over and adjusts the dash lights as needed. It sounds like yours has gone out.

Drivers side turn signal blinking fast other side normal, bulb change didn't help


Even after bulb change, do all lamps work? Bad ground can be shown by weak or dim bulb sometimes and this can cause fast flashing. All bulbs which flash must be working and of normal brightness which is sometimes hard to tell when they blink really fast.

My daytime running lights dont work and my passenger side light is dim, with high beams it is even dimmer. What could be my problem?


The running lights may be a bad relay or bulbs, if the bulbs are good then check the connections, make sure the socket is not burnt, if you remove the bulb the socket shouldnt have any melted area in it, also take a good look at the ground wire coming off the sockets, a quick test is to connect a wire to a good metal ground and then connect it to ground wire to a bulb socket if light brightings then you know its a bad ground, replace the ground wire or located the bad ground. hope this helps.

1998 acura rl headlights dim


I would think ur low beams are burnt (the bulbs) because that dim light u see should be the daytime running lights, which are usually less bright that the lights turned on.
Verify ur fuses as well for the low beams.
Check on that for now and get back to me if u have questions.
