On your 98 Pontiac Firebird why do your brights dimly come on with your regular lights and turning on your brights kills your engine?

You have a low level short somewhere in you headlight circuit. Probably somewhere under the hood. Trace the wires carefully starting at you headlights and work back to the firewall. Anything suspicious should be looked at carefully NO BARE WIRES ANYWHERE TOUCHING ANYTHING! It's redirecting your 12Volts to ground and your engine will not run without it.

The only affect it could have would be on the cooling. If a 1990 has a fan blade on the water pump and the alternator belt drives it, it may not be turning fast enough. If you have an electric fan mounted to the radiator, it may not be getting enough current to power it. It takes very little current to keep the car running, other parts will shut down and the car will still run.


the gear box may be going out or its metal on metal rubing somewhere


try turning the ignition key to on (don't start) and depressing the gas pedal 3 times within 5 seconds.
