Re: Front headlight to my 1991 continental
Dear Dim Headlight Owner.....There is a product out there made by both Meguires and Motheres( both different brands) that restores headlights to literally brand new. It is a VERY aggressive rubbing compound mixture. It runs about $9 a bottle.....but it's the cat's meow!!!!! I have both brands of these and they a frikkin AWESOME!!! It will take you about five minutes per headlight.....and a little bit of elbow grease....but you will be VERY impressed with the end result.Just a little warning tho....do not use this on car paint....only because it's so aggressive......you'll need to buy a couple polishing cloths also.....HAPPY BUFFING!!!! I HOPE I HELPED!!!!

Your headlight brightness is unlikely due to battery; it's more likely due to bad ground connection on both sides. There should be a wire coming from each headlight connected to the car's chassis. Check that the connection is tight and not corroded. Clean and reattach as needed.
in low beams or high or both? that is caused by: 1: bad held lamp. old lamps can go dim. swap left and right, if dim follows bulb, bingo weak bulb or wrong type bulb. buy matching blubs (same brand and P/n) 2: bad wiring to lamp. damaged wires, or connectors to same. 4: bad combo switch. (if low beams) 5: bad fuse or holder, corrosion , to either. head lamp fuses. there are 2. left and right. 6: hackers, many hackers put in wrong lights. inspect it.
1, Find the negative ground connection. clean it and reattach.
2. Headlights don't blow out like home lightbulbs, they start to die, they start to get dim. If yu are working with a two bulb system (one only comes on when you put high beams on) possibly the regular bulb is dimming because it is being used most.
3 try cleaning the globe to the headlight. Check to see if out of adustment. park car about 10-12 feet away form a blank wall. Turn lights on dim. Check to see if the "spot" created by the light is equal on both side. Older cars can lose their headlight "reach" making the bulb APPEAR to be dim when really, they need to be adusted. it is very easy to adjust headlights.
With no further info, that's the best I can offer.
I couldn't find any information on a headlight relay for your car, so it must be a fuse. I would also check the headlight bulbs, although it would be unusual that both of them burned out at the same time.
Hello. I can assist you. To replace the headlight you have to remove the cover on the outside using a phillips head screwdriver. Once you are in to the bulb it just unplugs and you plug in a new one. If you need a little free assistance just drive to any autozone autoparts store where they offer a free service including use of their tools and use of one of their clerks to assist you. In many cases, they just show you by doing the job for you. good luck.
The only thing that all of your problems have in common is the light switch and the dash wiring harness. The stereo is linked to the light switch because of it's illumination feature' You need to test the light switch with a test light by probing the wires at it's plug.
