SOURCE: Dim Headlights/headlight problem

if that is the case i believe your altenator is bad and draining the battery the altenator runs the engine and charges the battery the battery starts the vehicle and runs all the electronics and accessories the regulator is not working and therefore the battery is not getting charged and as the vehicle is running and the lights are on they will get dimmer and dimmer until there is no voltage left in the battery. reploace the altenator and the problem will go away...please rate this

SOURCE: one headlight bright, the other dim

For some reason, Toyota chooses to wire their headlamps differently than domestic cars, with dual fuses for the headlamps, and a common ground for each headlamp...The reason that the lamp was dim is the bulb was getting power thru a "backfeed" condition, due to the poor ground. The fuse may have blown due to the poor ground, also.

SOURCE: excessive smell of gasoline, odor of fuel

Gasoline smells can be very dangerous, Can you smell it more after filling your tank up? If so there is a leak in the filler tube that leads to you gas tank. It needs to be replaced immediately. If not on the injector rail there is a pressure regulator that can leak or there can actually be leak on one of the injectors itself. Please remember if you can smell gasoline there is DEFINITELY a leak in the system. Check all fuel lines on the bottom check gas filter injector rail and gas tank carefully you should find the leak. Good luck

Your alternator may be going bad. Test your battery while it is running with a voltmeter. It should be above 13.0 volts. I would check that first.

The dimmer switch on my 1999 firebird won't change the headlights from dim to bright, or vice versa. It has a good click to it and the blue light in the dash comes on when they're supposed to


That is a common problem, the switch needs changing if the high and low beams do work, the only problem is that it's an expensive part to replace, try a local wrecking yard they should have a bunch of suitable replacements at a reduced price.

1999 oldsmobile 88 headlights wont shut off


Pull this circuit breaker till you can find the problem. Check for applicable trouble codes. You have a lighting control module, I can't troubleshoot that component from here.

Headlights only work on bright


i had this happen with my dodge ram 1500. the guy i bought it from put 350 dollar moon lit lights in with leds and they looked impressive but the issue was that they didnt go bright and i could only see 40 feet in front of me and i was sure taping led flashlights would have done me more good that those stupid headlights. then i had the idea of if the brights work and the dims dont then that means no electricity is getting to the dims so i decided to bridge the power from the bright headlight to the dims and it made all four work. now they all work, and only on bright. so im figuring there is a issue with the wiring in the truck. so this is a temporary solution if you really need just plain old lights like i did because i live out in the country

1998 toyota corolla dash and shifter lights out fuse and relay good


sounds like you have a bad panel dimmer control. try turning the control from bright to dim very fast a few times then slowly, do this in a dark area or at night with the headlights on, you should see a flicker of light occasionally. If you don't see any light then it could be either the headlight switch or the dimmer control, if you DO see any light, then it's your dimmer

My headlights on my 94 dakota work fine for a while on brights, but then just the headlights start flashing/flickering. Parking lights and brake lights are fine. It will also flash/flicker in dim lights...


I just had this problem. There was a screw loose on the hi-beam switch. You have to take off the plastic cover on the steering column to get to it. Really simple to fix yourself (5 minutes tops). 4 screws and the turn of a small wrench. Free if you do it yourself, $600 if you take it to the dealer.

Tail lights don't work when bright lights are on. dash lights don't work when dims on


Sounds like you have a problem with a ground. Electrical wierdness like this can almost always be attributed to a bad ground. Have you done anything to the car recently that could have affected a ground? Replaced the dimmer switch or light switch?
