There are many do it yourself kits available out there on the market that work quite well and don't even require any tools or training, just type in a term like "cloudy foggy headlights" and you'll be sure to find great info regarding the process and possibly some headlight restoration kits.

p.s. if you just apply a polish the yellowing will just end up coming back

Automotive paint buffing compound will give a smooth finish, but you will need to apply it with a rotary buffer or you will be at it all day.

Neon headlights not working

You will need to inspect some of the related components. I would start with the head-light fuse and relay. Check that both go in with firm pressure. While you have the fuse and relay out. Inspect them. Check that they are free of corrosion and signs of overheating. If they check out then inspect the headlight switch and the high beam switch. I don't know what year this car is but age could be a factor. The head light or high beam switch cool be loose or worn out. Check as much wiring as you can. Look for spots/areas that are bulging (corrosion), over-heated, or frayed. I hope that helps. If you have any other question be feel free. The more information you can provide, the better.

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 87 k5 blazer headlights don't turn on when the car is started and running any more... all 4 headlights turn on fine when I pull the lever all the way out for high beams

The vehicle should not have to be running for head lights to burn.If high beams work,then the low beam head lights could be burned out,even though they light up with high beams.The dimmer switch,can be the problem if the head lights only work on high beam.

The headlights on my 1994 ford taurus sedan are too dim. Even the high beams are not bright enough for safe nighttime driving. Also, the daytime running lights are always on the high beam position. I even...

the lenses are most likely clouded over? yellowed? sometimes you can buy a kit to polish them, but I would recommend replacement, polish doesnt last long, and you will need to replace them anyhow. the DRL lights are operating normally

My audi a4 2000 model, has very poor light output on dipped beams, fine on high beam but obviously not convenient, please help!

a few ideas...are the headlights aimed correctly?   can you replace them with high output bulbs sold at most auto stores?  are the headlight lenses cloudy with age?  You can buy a lens polishing kit from the auto parts store.  can you add some additional driving lights?

Decreased headlamp intensity.

I have sucessfully used Mother's plastic polish on my 97 headlights and my 90 headlights and the bug shield on my 97. It cleans and polishes the yellowed plastic. I applied it with a mini-powerball in a cordless drill.
