I have a 1995 Pontiac transport light go dim or off and on when driving at night also low battery replaced alt about 1 or 2 years ago


vehicles: Any with headlight(s) going dim/off (day or night).

Even if your battery is barely strong enough to start the car (that's all a battery is really needed for anyway - once started, your TranSport will run without a battery), the alternator should provide enough Volts/Amps to light the headlights fully and steadily. The symptom you're having tells me that your vehicle has either a problem with the alternator or the voltage regulator which is an integral component of the alternator.

Secondary items to check: loose wiring harness to one or more headlights.

Tertiary items to check: possible beginning of failure in headlight switch.

In the US., one can drive to an Advance Auto Parts/AutoZone/Pep Boys and get a free "charging system check", which is done without removing any components of the car. You simply turn on the car and the technician checks the car while it idles in the parking lot. This check will tell you if you have a weak alternator.
Also, a battery can be disassembled out of the car and load tested in an in-store battery tester by the same auto parts stores.

For your next posting (where you may be asking how to replace the alternator), look up the 8th digit of your 1995 TranSport's VIN code:
Select the engine of your 1995 Pontiac Trans Sport:
6 cylinders , VIN "D" 3.1L TBI
6 cylinders, VIN "L" 3.8L SFI OHV

check for a bad ground wire for the tail lights. You are looking for a black ground wire near the bottom of the left rear corner of the car, inside. you may need to take the trim panel off to find it. if you take out the left tail light you should be able to follow the harness to where the black wires come out and a terminal is screwed to the body. turn on the hazard lights and when you get near the problem the lights will brighten and dim.

My 03 monte tail lights an dash lights wont work -- brake an blinkers work -- bulbs an fuses are all good cant figuer it out any help would be app. ty


I would start by checking the headlight switch on the dash. You can brighten and dim the lights on the dash with a switch. Usually when just the dash lights go out then it is this switch.

The back passenger blinker wont work and the bulbs


Different filament.
You have two filaments in those bulbs. A dim one for lights, and a second one that's brighter for directional and brake. You need to see if you have a good ground and both positive's at the socket.( with the parking and directional on)

Have you considered going back to the place that replaced your motor. They surely are responsible for not making things worse. You just asked for a different motor and not all the electrical issues. Don't throw parts at it.

04 pontiac sunfire battery light and panel lights dim


sounds like your alternator. if you have a multimeter then turn on your car and turn your headlights on/ac and heater fan on high/wipers on and blinkers on. once they are all on hook the meter to the battery and if it reads less then 14 volts then the alt is bad. or you can just take it to a shop and have it tested.
