Sounds like your dimmer switch (switch that activates hi beams is bad) I'd have a reputable mechanic check it out before it causes you an accident.

Headlights


I doubt it, but its possible.
If the alternator is working and the battery stays charged, I would check the voltage at the lights, as well as the ground connection.

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.

My headlights are really dim at night. But everyone says there fine. what should i do?


The headlights on my Tahoe are dim too. It's also a 1999. I replaced my bulbs with Silverstar's but it was still dim. I used Mequiar's Headlight kit to polish off the yellowing and oxidized headlight's and it really made them look good but they are still not bright. They look bright but the light hitting the road is still weak. It's because the inside of my headlights are a little bit cloudy still. The heat damage from the bulb made the insides cloudy and the light is still weak on the road at night. That's all I can do unless I replace the headlight assemblies. Much money and not super simple to do. I have very bright bulbs just cloudy housings that still don't allow the beam to fully shine through. I don't know if that is your issue but I hope this helps.

Dim Screen on the 2001 Toyota Prius


Yes the screen dims automatically when the lights are on to suit night driving. I am not specifically familiar with the 01 model, however on my 08 model, the display brightness is also manually adjustable via a button located below and to the right of the display. The button is marked with a series of short lines assembled in an arc. Hope this helps.

The headlights only work on Bright. The dim


If the low beam head light relay is fine,and the dimmer switch checks out fine,then look at the out put wire from the dimmer switch to the head light relay,check for voltage,then check the relay to see if it energizes.Then follow the wire(out put)from the relay to the head light.Now if power from the dimmer is getting to the relay,but the relay is not energizing,look for a bad relay,or bad relay ground wire.

Headlights won't work


relay was stuck.  Now you replace the relay and a few burnt fuses and the burnt wiring.  You should have fixed this at the first warning sign of a problem...sadly, now you pay the price for not doing so.
