the dim light has a bad ground. it is using the high beems of both lights as the ground. this leads to a voltage drop of about 7 volts on the dim light. then the high beem grounds through the driving lights of a lesser wattage and this leaves a voltage drop of only 3 volts at light so the light seems not to be on but it is , just very very dim. ck your ground going to the dim light!

High beams should only be used in extreme darkness and only when there is no other vehicle in your opposing lane. The reason behind this is because high beams can be blinding in the opposing lane and can and have lead to very serious accidents.Answer If your high beams were left of as on-coming traffic was approaching it would be blinding to the other driver. If you have your high beams on while in back of another car, it could also be blinding to the driver your following through side and rear view mirrors. Either way it is dangerous. If your high beams were left on constantly through - lets say a city - where lighting is good, the police officer may have determined that it was suspicious, and was checking to see if you were on alcohol or drugs.

On your switch lanes signal stick, on the left side of the wheel,you pull it towards you and the beams will come on. Pull them again and they will shut off.
