If you are referring to the sewing light at the end of the machine , it is probably a bad connection for the bulb
it should be a screw in bulb and the ground contact rubs against the thread as you screw it in
this contact gets weak and doesn't maintain a good contact with machine movement
unplug the machine, remove the bulb and bend that contact inwards a bit so that when you screw the bulb in you feel resistance to the turning of the bulb well before it is full in
that contact problem is also a reason for constant blowing of the bulb

Dash lights come on with the headlights then shut off


Do you have a dimmer for interior lamps? Like a rheostat, a little wheel that you turn up or down to brighten or dim interior lamps. Usually the instrument cluster lamps brighten and dim the same way.
Can you brighten and dim the other interior lamps?

2005 gmc sierra head lights brighten and dim while driving


This is caused by either a poor ground connection to the head lights or an overcharging condition taking place in the voltage regulator of the alternator, the spikes in output voltage causes the head lights to brighten up.

2002mazdatribute will not run when put in gear and dealership says nothing is wrong??????


Do you know in detail what the dealer actually did?

We get a hundred of these dealer's not caring about
the customer ,every day on this site alone

I won't ever recommend going to one.

That may offend some very good hard working
technicians,but the dealers seem to only be in the
game for the money.
The mechanics have no control over what the
service mgr want them to do

Do you have any check light on the dash?

That could be a bad Transmission Range Switch
if your veh has one.

It probably didn't act up when it was there & you
were one of the few they couldn't find anything else
to take you for,so they return your vehicle

I never go to a dealer after the warrantee runs out
Now you see why.

My digital dash lights have gone out i cant see anything on the dashboard at all, what is my problem i have an 89 ninety eight oldsmobile 4 door


hi ther .it sounds like you your dash lites have been dimmed. you should be able to turn your head lite switch to the right and they should come back on. or there might be a dial to turn under the headlite switch to brighten the dash lites. but there is a switch that dims or brightens your dash lites. hope this helps. have a good day

My panel lights are too dim and won't brighten. I checked all the fuses and they are all working fine. I turned the dimmer knob all the way to the right and they still won't brighten. When I first turn...


Your alternator may be going bad. Once the car is running, your battery has done its job and the alternator takes over. The alternator is responsible for firing the plugs, running your lights, your radio, your heater/AC, and anything else electrical, as well as keeping your battery charged. If the alternator is on its way out (or even has a less than good ground), you may experience some lights dimming, or even choppy radio signal. If the alternator is already gone, and your car is running off of the battery full time, you will also get the dimming you describe, and sooner or later the car will not even start. Take your car to an auto parts store (Advance, or Auto Zone, etc) and ask them to test your alternator. This is a free service.

Won't start lights dim and then brighten


Did you try to boost battery? Sounds like low charge. Check battery terminals for tight and clean as well as groung connection at body and power connection at starter for clean. If battery OK test for power on starter wires. Large wire will have contant battery power small wire will have battery power when key is in crank position. If power ok on both it will probably need a starter. Hope this helps...Good Luck.
