Question about Mazda MX-5 Miata

I need to lower my headlights, if I put a little weight in the trunk and travel at night I'm asked to take off my brights all the time and I don't have them on. I would like instructions on how to lower them.

    You do not need to mess with the lights. You likely drive a higher percentage of the time unloaded. Lowering the lights will make it just that much more unsafe. What you need to do is beef up the rear suspension so it does not point at the sky with a little weight in there.

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

How do i put on my headlights at night and still have my dashboard light on


I'm not absolutely sure on this model, because I have no references, but on earlier Toyota products (Lexus) On the dash on the lower left side is going to be a small knob about 1/2-3/4 in in diameter.
That is what controls the brightness of the dash lights on your vehicle. Rotating it clockwise should make it brighter. You should also notice other lighted areas brighten on the dash as well.

My 1991 non-turbo Mercury Capri started fine last night but while idling, the Air Bag light began to flash and the Battery light came on. Not wanting to travel I turned off the ignition switch. ...


charge the battery and once fully charged, do a LOAD test on it, clean all the connections and start the car ,, check the voltage at the battery posts with the car running, you should get between 13.5 and 14.5 volts, if not, replace the alternator , if you do, the battery and the cables just needed some attention

Does this model use a 4 headlight bright system? I have 2 low beam lights but when I put on the bright lights the 2 low beam lights go out and only the 2 bright lights stay on.


I think that many 1990s and even some 1980s GM vehicles with seemingly 4 headlight systems actually use only 2 at a time.

My 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais, for instance, had 2 high beams that went on independently of the 2 low beam lights when switched with the turn signal lever.

In the 1970s the GM vehicles had 4 headlight systems where all 4 headlights would go on, but they used sealed beams rather than the capsule lights that are used nowadays.

For instance, our 1976 Cadillac Seville has a 4 headlight system that lights up 4 headlights on the high beam mode.

Good luck on seeing at night with the current set up.

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.

My car crown victoria 2007 the headlights are on all the time night and day (without the auto )only they go off when i put it on the Parking mode


That is normal... (for safety in the daytime).

Notice that in the daytime, the HIGH BEAM lamps are lit, but they are "dim", not bright.

If you turn ON your headlights in the daytime, a different set of headlamps light up.

Hope this explains that....
Now you may notice "many" cars in the daytime with headlights on...
