If your interior lights are dimming, either your battery or starter could be failing. You should have your car checked.
Headlights, interior lights, parking lights,Headlights, interior lights, parking lights,
If parking and tailights are working could be headlight switch--rheostat for dimming control could be bad
Check to see if the interior lights are switched "ON" Sometimes they get turned on when you move the headlight switch.
not to sure but on my vectra it normally controls the interior lights, but you have to pull the switch out to put the interior lights on
The interior lights are controlled by the headlight switch and are protected by a fuse.
A likely cause is a faulty interior light dimming switch. This switch is directly connected to both the dash lights (for dimming), and the dome light (on/off).
Typically this is a failure of the headlight switch assembly. See the question about how to replace the headlight switch in a 1991 Cherokee for the answer of how to accomplish.
Pull the headlight switch knob when it is in the headlight 'on' position. This turns on the fog lights.
Replace headlight switch- dimming rheostat may be loose
If the interior lights come on and go of and chimes sound off f on a 1997 Dodge Caravan there could be a loose connection somewhere. This is a common condition with the Dodge Caravan series.
If the interior lights stay on while driving on a 2002 Impala, there could be a problem with the headlight switch. Check the relay center for the headlights that is just behind the headlight switch.
Headlights,interior lights stop working.checked all fuses. I would suspect the headlight switch and/or the electrical connection at the headlight switch is faulty.
try to turn the interior light switch off near the the headlight switch ( dimmer switch) is most likely in the on position
Check fuse for tail and parking lights Could be a bad dimming rheostat Could be a bad headlight switch
Interior Lights thumbwheel is above the headlight switch on the left of the dash. Rotate the wheel all the way up to turn on the interior lights. Just past the highest dashboard light setting.
change the headlight switch !
Most vehicles have the instrument panel light brightness level and the interior courtesy lights [on or off] controlled by the same switch, which usually is a "rotary" type. The on/off function of the instrument panel lights is usually "tied" in with the parking and headlight off/on push-pull switch. The reason for having this additional,manual method of control for the interior courtesy lights is to allow use of the courtesy lights WITHOUT having to open one of the doors. When the parking or headlights are on, clockwise rotation of the headlight switch knob, increases the brightness of the instrument panel lights. Just before full clockwise rotation of the knob, there is a "detent," which if passed, turns on the interior courtesy lights. Full COUNTERclockwise rotation of the knob dims the instrument panel lights to the point of extinguishment, but to my knowledge, full counterclockwise rotation DOES NOT turn on the interior courtesy lights. j3h.
In my 02 Aztek, I turn the headlight knob (on the dash left of the steering wheel, above your left knee) clockwise to get the interior lights to come on.
Bad headlight switch.
Push the button. The one close to the headlight switch.
Wipers, interior lights, exterior lights, alarm, some of the hvac system,.......
perhaps the switch/sensor broke.
If it is equipped with fog lights, you turn them on by pulling the headlight switch out one notch after turning the headlights on.
