You might have an electrical short in the wiring going up to the bulb.

Or maybe just a loose ground wire?

2007 Hyosung Avitar GV 650 the headlight keeps getting bright then it dims


Hi, Oliver if your headlight is not working, only one beam works, keeps burning out, blinking, dim or surges from bright to dim to bright the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, then check your head light bulb socket ground wire for a clean tight connection, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn down solder contacts or loose fit of the bulb base in the socket due to vibration.
3. Worn, chaffed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
4. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
5. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
8. Faulty headlight relay.
9. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
10. Weak charging alternator/generator/lightling coil.
11. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier ground or overcharging.

My high beam switch won't stay clicked onto bright lights I have dims - but the lever won't keep my brights on. I can hold the lever forward and I have brights - but when I release the lever, I go back...


Try turning the headlight control knob clockwise so that the arrow is pointing up. You may only have it in daytime lights mode and not actually in headlight mode.

Hi:
Normal operation of the headlight circuit is to just have one set of headlights on a time, bright or dim, but not both.

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.

Main beam warning light stays on but no main beam.dipped headlight dim


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initial checks would be:
  • continuity of the bright / dim filaments of the headlight;
  • the headlight bulb socket;
  • +12 when switch on bright on the yellow wire;
  • +12 when switch on dim on the green wire.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

When I turn on the bright lights, one headlight goes out. when I turn off the bright lights, the other headlight goes out


you may need 2 light bulbs. check real close, if they go out compltely or really dim.... if dim, you have a ground wire issue, if they go out completely the bulbs are bad.
