I have a 1995 Chrysler intrepid and my dash lights do not go off when i turn on my lights but I may know why yours go off. Either right beside or below the knob used to turn on the headlights is a little dile that can only go up and down. This dile is used to dim or brighten the dashlights at night. The reason your dashlights may go off is because you have the dashlights dimmed way down (gotta love little perks Chrysler came up with) so try adjusting that dile. If that doesn't work, you may have an electrical problem or the light may be blown behind the dash. This could be really expensive to fix, so be prepared. .

What are low beam lights?

Low beams are the headlights when they are dipped. Used to light up the road just in front of you and biased towards the kerb nearest you. They also allow you to be seen clearly, but without blinding oncoming vehicles or those in front of you. When there is no other traffic to blind, the headlights should be switched to main beam, to give you the best view ahead and early warning of dangers. A blue light on the dashboard warns you when your headlights are on Main beam and blinding. If you have your headlights switched on and there is NO blue light, then your headlights are on Low beam.

Are the headlights positive or negative switched?

Headlights in the US are generally positive switched, because the best source of return current is vehicle ground, and US cars are generally a positive voltage system. However, if Daytime Running Lights (DRL) are employed, often the high beams are wired in series, so as to illuminate at about one quarter power, so the concept of which end is switched becomes vague. Usually, one is positive switched, and the other is positive switched between switched positive and the negative side of the first.

Can you use your bright headlights on an interstate?

Use of Bright Beam HeadlightsUsually the use of bright beam headlights is allowed on most major highways, with the exception that most traffic codes REQUIRE that they be switched to the low beams when there is oncoming traffic.The purpose of this is to prevent or reduce the glare and chances of "blinding" the driver of oncoming vehicles, and thus to increase safety on the highways.It is not only RUDE AND CRUDE to fail to dim your headlights for oncoming traffic, but it also is usually a violation of the law.

Why do brakelights go off on when the head lights are switched on?

Brake lights should NOT be effected by the headlights. Brake light function is completely independent of the headlights. Assuming you are not refering to the tail lights, or marker lights, which are supposed to come when the head lights are turned on. Not having brake lights when the head lights are on is a big safety problem and should be corrected.

Firstly, turn the ignition on but don't start the engine, then turn the headlights on, then off, then turn them back on, then off again. (so twice on, twice off) the car should beep at you twice indicating this function has been switched on. To switch off, repeat the same steps above and the car will only beep once.
