SOURCE: My headlights are very dim

I had the same problem on my 1996 Chrysler T&C. I purchased a kit from Walmart that reconditions the plastic cover. I restores it to ~70% of its original clearity. It is in a pauch approximatly 8"X10". Everything you need is included in the kit. Some sanding is required.

SOURCE: how do you adjust the headlights on a 1997 chevy

The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.

My Headlights are so dim that I cant drive at night in my 1997 Chevy Blazer. How Can I get them brighter?


You have to go back to the route cause & time
frame of the problem

Did you check voltage & ground at each lamp connector,
when they first got dim & you started to resolve things?

Why converter to a different bulb?
I don't know the current draw of the oe vs: the H4,but
that has to be considered

Obviously the alternator output would be up there at the
same time your checking lamp connector voltage.

Problem--Voltage Drop somewhere or too much resistance
somewhere,basic OHM's Law

How do you replace the headlight flipper switches fixture on a 1997 chevy blazer 2 door


There are two screws basically above the speedometer area. Once those are removed you can lightly remove the plastic dash piece. You will then be able to see where to unplug it. Comes out pretty easily. Should only take about 10 minutes. I actually just replaced this yesterday on my Blazer. The switch was only $11 too, so not bad. A shop quoted me $120 to replace it. I hope this helps.

1997 Cevrolet blazer, dim headlights even after replacing. fuse box cannot be found.


A dim headlight after replacing would indicate a bad ground on that side. Check the black wire running from the headlight and try following it back to where it grounds. Or you can run a ground wire direct to the headlight and make sure you ground it to bare metal, or the negative post on the battery.

When I turn on the bright lights, one headlight goes out. when I turn off the bright lights, the other headlight goes out


you may need 2 light bulbs. check real close, if they go out compltely or really dim.... if dim, you have a ground wire issue, if they go out completely the bulbs are bad.
