I would think ur low beams are burnt (the bulbs) because that dim light u see should be the daytime running lights, which are usually less bright that the lights turned on.
Verify ur fuses as well for the low beams.
Check on that for now and get back to me if u have questions.

FUSES FOR HEADLIGHT DIM AND BRIGHT


Assuming you Focus does not have DRL, setting the light switch to low beam energizes the low beam relay in the battery junction box, sending power through 10A FUSE 16 (L) and FUSE 17 (R) to the headlamp low beam elements

Headlights wont work on dim, only bright


Check your head light bulbs, your truck has the dual filiment headlight bulbs one per side which does both high beam and low beam, 9007 bulbs.
If the low beam filiments are burned out only the high beam will work.
Also look into finding out if the headlight switch is gone bad.
The headlight module and or drl module maybe defective.

Headlights wont dim but work when clicked on bright


Replace both low beam headlights. It's common to have one headlight burned out and you may not realize it for months. Then the other one goes out and "puff" you have NO low beams.

Both headlights went out same time . bulbs are good . fuses are good. back lights work and high beam works too. what else can it be? and is this common with these cars . 1998 acura 2.5 tl year is 1998 not...


Test the leads to the bulbs while the low beams are on and then when the brights are on. If you have good bulbs & fuses with no power on low, the problem is most likely the bright/dim switch.
Not exactly sure of the Acura layout, but the covers over the steering shaft should remove with several screws to allow access to the switch (usually the turn signals are also the bright/dim switch) Test the leads out to the headlights from the bright/dim switch, that will tell you if the switch is bad.
Airbags are closely involved with this removal/replacement, it is NOT recommended for a amatuer to undertake.

Look under the hood.

You have a bad ground, look out by the battery for a bunch of black wires screwed to the body of the car, check that they have a clean and tight connection, scrap off any paint under the wires.
