    Hi I removed the inner wheel shroud and no harnass. Would a day time running relay cause this weird problem. I was thinking about running a direct ground to over ride the problem, but not sure it would not lead to more problems. lol the relay made me think it is the back feed to the system.

1997 Chevy Cavalier. Bulbs/Fuses are good. Weird Headlight issues.


It could be a ground problem, or the dimmer switch. I would check for power and ground at the lights with them unplugged and then take a look at the dimmer switch.

Right headlight is dim , even when i turn the brights on, but the blinker works,left side headlight all works good.on a 2001 chevy malibu


You may have a loose or corroded headlight ground to the body, the ground wires are in most GM attached to the body near the headlight under the hood. Check all the grounds you can see on the inside of the fender, tighten and clean the with a wire brush, also check the headlight connector for problems like corrosion or not fully seated to the headlight bulb.

I have a 2001 cavalier with a dim driver side headlight. Have changed the bulb, DRL relay and headlight switch. Removed the ground cable from the battery tray, cleaned ground cable and battery tray contact...


Give this a try------get a piece of wire and strip both ends, the black wire coming out of the plug on the head light, stick one end of the wire in there and the other end to a good ground or the negative battery terminal with the lights on, if the light gets brighter, there is a bad ground to that light. I hope this helps, cause you have just done about everything else.

Trying to fix the wiring on headlight


try checking the ground wire on the frame next to the head light if you have a volt meter measure voltage on the hot side, if there is 12 volts then measure it on the ground side, is it lower than 12 volts? if it is you have bad ground strap follow the wire it will be near the radiator core support and sand it off if that does not help then it's in the light switch.

Left headlight is dim - like it has a bad ground. Right is fine. DRL are same as regular lights. High and Low beam on left same dim condition. Fuses are OK switch checks OK. Replaced the relay with no...


i think you hit the nail on the head with the ground problem,if you remove the bulb from the head light assembly,wiggle the black wire to see if the bulb gets brighter,if it does remove the bulb and clean and tighten the ground wire end.if it does not get brighter from a wiggle,connect the ground end of a test light to the positive post of the battery and probe the black wire,test light should light,if so replace the light socket.

Head light is real dim


Likely you have a bad ground at the bulb socket! You can either clean it, add another ground wire, or both! Don't ground a power lead... Identify both running power and hi-beam power before making ground! You can use a test light to do this!
