The headlamp circuit may have a high resistence to ground maybe some corrosion causing dim bulb. try to trace wiring from dim lamp behind headlamp often it is attached to the fram within the same general area.

No dim headlights


Check low beam bulbs for being burned out. Maybe one burned out and was not noticed until the second was burned out.

Headlights wont work on dim, only bright


Check your head light bulbs, your truck has the dual filiment headlight bulbs one per side which does both high beam and low beam, 9007 bulbs.
If the low beam filiments are burned out only the high beam will work.
Also look into finding out if the headlight switch is gone bad.
The headlight module and or drl module maybe defective.

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.

1995 jetta headlights work on bright but not on dim. Fuses are good


Had this once...Check voltage at plug on dim side to see if you have power.
If so, check continuity thru head light.
(I had both headlight low beams burn out at the same time once.)
Ya might check your headlight relays are seated for good connection as well.

2000 GRAND CARAVAN: Extremely dim headlights, because headlights are so narrow. Installed 9007SU Silverstar Ultra bulbs 3 years ago. Age 77 so poor night vision + still DIM headlights is BAD at night! ...


The silverstar bulbs while brighter, have a considerably shorter life span than conventional bulbs. If the headlights are dim, it would mean a bad electrical connection most commonly a bad ground. If they are just too dim for your liking and burn at the normal brightness, you might want to consider having auxilliary headlamps installed.

'03 Cavalier driverside headlight looked dim. Replaced bulb, lasted 1 day, then it looked dim, too. Bulb socket had burn mark. HELP!


When replacing headlight bulbs it's best to wear gloves as the oil from your skin can actually damage the new bulb. Spray out the headlight socket with some electrical cleaner and make sure the bulb is properly seated with no bent wires on the the bulb where it inserts into the socket.

Dim lights on 99 camaro are not working - fuse is good


When one side of headlights go out dim or high, it can send the extra power to the working headlight burning it out too. This usually happens if the headlight bulbs are both old. Try changing out both headlight bulbs first, as this is the easiest and cheapest fix.

Headlights


Pull the headlight switch and check for a burned connector, this will cause a poor connection and in turn dim headlights or no lights.
