the fuses are located on the left side of the drivers foot well. these trucks have problems with rot and when they start to fall apart the beds move around and short out the taillights and youll usually lose the dash lights with the tails but the headlights are separate.

There are two possible cause of dim display.
On the deluxe trim level of the Impala the is light sensor. When the sensor mis-calibrated the light will not be at the level you want.
As a test,use a small flash light and aim to the sensor and see is the circuit act according it.
The dimmer light is a VERY CHEAP component. I will glow it out with compress air 1st. Turn the dial back and forth 20-30 time in rapid motion will help remove unwanted carbon,
Use a eletrical contact cleaner to clean all contacts.
Is the headlight in OEM specification?
After market headlights may draw more amperage and cause low power for smaller bulbs.

If the battery and alternator tested fine. I would have the charging system rechecked when engine is hot and at high rpm's. This way the checks are being done as if you were driving and driving for a long time. Alternators can work fine when cold but weaken when hot or stop working. This problem is not rare but only is seen occassionly. Unless it was checked at an electrical shop the average shop doesn't run these tests for they don't see the problem often enough to automaticly run them at all times. Good luck and let me know how you make out.
