Headlights run off the battery not the ignition...
If by "dim headlights" you mean low-beams... the bulbs are bad and must be replaced.
It would not be a good idea. First it is illegal, second it can actually cause the computer to over adjust fuel and ignition timing and cause running issues.It would not be a good idea.

sounds like the ignition control module
Probably a stuck solenoid.
i think, depending on the year, that problem is caused by a factory defect.
the chime would stay on if the keys are in the ignition (but the car turned off) and if the door is ajar to warn that the lights are still on
I had water leaking at the base of the windshield on a Ford F-250. It would run down the inner firewall onto a control module causing lights, blower fans and all sorts of wierd things to turn on with no key in the ignition and the vehicle not running.
yes it will also cause them to blink off & on and
If it starts but doesn't stay running after you release the key from the start position, it means your ignition switch is bad. Not a huge expense.
this could be due to a bad ground Wire running in the ignition
bad fuel pump, bad ignition, ecm wires removed, clutch safety switch, about a million things -berettaspeed15 bad fuel pump, bad ignition, ecm wires removed, clutch safety switch, about a million things -berettaspeed15
If the engine isn't running, the battery is low. If the engine is running, the alternator probably has a problem. If you are wearing dark sunglasses, remove them and the lights will get brighter. good luck!
burned out light bulb
Bad ground on the brake lite circuit.
can a chevy truck with a 350 engine with a tbi cause detonation and pre- ignition?
An internal combustion engine needs fuel, oxygen, and an ignition source. If any are missing, it would stop running.
Low-beam headlights that are not property adjusted can make them as bright as high-bead headlights. They also can cause you to not see the full road ahead.
The ignition key.
Possible ground issue at the taillights.
where is fuse for 97 Mazda protege ? and other fuses for headlights cause they don't come on help ?
I didn't want to wait, so I bought an ignition switch ($99 for a Duralast switch at Autozone) and installed it. It fixed my headlight problem. The directions to replace the ignition switch are attached. I have read that the ignition switch is the root cause of many electrical issues with Intrigues. My problem was I couldn't turn on the headlights manually, and I had to depend on the automatic headlight feature to turn the lights on at night, which stinks when I wanted headlights at dusk or in light rain (although I could run with fog lights, but darn it, I want my headlights to work!). I have read that others have only been able to turn their lights on manually without the automatic headlight feature working. Both issues appear to be fixed by either replacing the ignition switch or cleaning the terminals on the ignition switch. The theory is that most of the power system flows through that device and affects everything. I have heard about various heating and cooling system issues related to the ignition switch as well.
There are several things that can cause your 2003 Kia headlights not to work. The most common cause is a loose or corroded ground wire.
