Have you checked for a faulty ground. That could cause a problem with most electrical. If the system isn't grounded properly it won't work properly. The best thing to do before getting things changed (alternator and battery) and costing you more money is to look for the simple things. Saves you time headaches and money.

The most common cause for your 1997 Honda Civic lights to dim is a bad alternator. The alternator is not charging the battery. The battery retains a small charge, but not enough charge to run the engine.
Your alternator is bad.
Lights on a car do not cause any major fuel cost, as they are run off the battery. The engine has an alternator on it that is working all the time charging the system up. This is where the lights would cause any fuel costs. The alternator may put extra load on the engine, but it would be hard to notice any difference in fuel costs.
I had a similar problem in a taurus. I had to replace the alternator.

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!
