SOURCE: chevy k10 headlight/taillight problem

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.

do you have the right light bulb? i own a 98 sentre and
it takes a 9004 bulb, but walmarts computer said to use 9007. That made the high beam censor stay on till i replaced it. if you look at the bulb you can tell if it is a dual or single beam bulb.!!!!

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.
