Hi,

A couple of suggestions:
1. Check/replace the bulbs;
2. Check/clean the connectors;
3. Check/clean/replace the fuse;
4. Check/clean headlight relays.

Often the problem that exhibits dim headlight is loose grounding. The three wires that leads to each headlight bulb would be for low, high and ground.m You need to trace the ground wire and determine if the other end is grounded properly. A quick fix is to add a grounding strap/wire to the appropriate wire/connector of each headlight bulb with the other end to the chassis/body of the vehicle.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Dash lights come on with the headlights then shut off


Do you have a dimmer for interior lamps? Like a rheostat, a little wheel that you turn up or down to brighten or dim interior lamps. Usually the instrument cluster lamps brighten and dim the same way.
Can you brighten and dim the other interior lamps?

My 1999 1500 headlights are very dim. My brights are as bright as standard lights should be. What does this mean


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.

Headlights not coming on


I'd start with the fuse.Have you tried to dim them yet? I think this is the model where the lights turn on from the turnsignal switch and dim from the same switch, if so this multifunction switch gives problems.

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.
