It could be that your alternator is not charging you battery properly, or your battery is going, if you are referring to the actual lens of the headlamp a simple buffing of the lenses will clear them up as good as new.or another thing could be the connectors of the bulbs may have corrosion and they may need cleaning of replacing which could cause a fluctuation in the current they receive .....

Lights dim


Was any of the brake light bulbs changed recently, the wrong type of bulb may be used causing a short in the socket, and making the rest of the brake and signal circuit malfunction. I no bulbs were recently replaced, start with checking for corrosion in each bulb socket, signal and brake bulb sockets. Let us know what you find

2001 Civic dimmer not working


It's not high and low beam, it's the dash lights that are dim. I've hooked up many aftermarket radios but never knew it was a no no to hook up the dimmer/illumination orange wires in a '01 civic. I googled it and seen many others with similar issues like mine but nothing exactly like the issue I have.

All the dash lights work, they are dim though. The radio lights work but they are even more dim than the rest of the dash lights. I have check every single fuse under the dash and in the engine bay. The dim controller does not work at all now. I'm guessing that's the issue and from what I read, the dimmers circuit board is in the instrument cluster. Some can fix it, others can't.


I will probably end up buying a used instrument cluster off of ebay, they are not expensive. Hopefully that fixes it since everything else works.


Oh, yes, the brake lights work.


Ted, I think you answered the wrong question...I mentioned nothing about the battery or the low/hi beams

Head lights dim in and out


Check the alternator belt. It needs to be tight. A parts store can check your alternator on your car for voltage output. A loose belt or a weak alternator will cause your problem.

Head Lights go dim, instrument panel goes dim when I turn on my Headlights


Does it go completely black or just dim? Most displays dim when you turn the lights on to make the display darker so its not too bright. GPS and other displays do this. Do you have any problems with any other of the car's electronics?

Dim headlights


check to see if a wire is grounded or the connection at the base of your head lights. Try pushing or wiggling around the wires.
