The head lamps should not get dim. Dim light are an indication of low voltage. You should have a volt meter in the instrument panel. If the voltages is not reading about 14V when the engine is running, you have a bad battery or alternator. It should read over 12V with the engine not running and the ignition in the on position. It should not drop below about 9-10 when cranking the engine. If you have low voltage during cranking and normal voltage at other times, you probably need to replace the battery.

Why the headlamps of a car go dim when the starter motor is used?

The headlights in a car usually dim slightly when the starter motor is used. This is because the starter generally pulls substantial current from the battery, and that causes the battery voltage to decrease. However, they should not go too dim... Excessiving dimming can be caused by a bad or undercharged battery, and bad starter, or bad wiring connections.

Why would a light bulb contain more than one filament?

In a lamp you can have three settings with two filaments. One filament is for dim. When it is on, the bulb is dim. One filament is medium. When only it is on, the light is medium. When both filaments are on, the bulb is bright. In auto and motorcycle applications headlamps can have 2 filaments. A 'dip' beam and a 'High' or 'Main' beam. When the High Beam is on the Dip is off and vice versa.
