If it's a Sunfire, go to the dealer. I think they were recalled for that problem.

Usually the ground wire that comes out of the headlight that is fastened to the car body is the culprit. You will usually find the wire terminal from the headlight plug attaching to the car body or chassis ground not too far from the headlight. Fairly common problem.

The sun is the hottest/brightest. It's not really that they are hotter or dimmer than the sun or any other stars, it's that some are older than others.

More than likely it is the headlight dimmer switch.All headlight operations go through it once you have turned them on at the switch. It can be the relay.

Proxima Centauri appears dimmer than Betelgeuse because it actually is dimmer by several orders of magnitude.

You cannot use most fluorescent lights with a dimmer. Just about any incandescent bulb WILL work with a dimmer. Occasionally, when a halogen bulb burns out, it will destroy a dimmer switch but halogen bulbs are considered incandescent and other than that little problem they work well with a dimmer.

A bulb designed for a higher voltage application than the one it's used in will not shine as brightly as it is supposed to. For instance; a 24 volt light in a 12 volt socket will be dimmer than it's designed to be.

It depends. As of March 2012, Venus is significantly brighter than Jupiter. However, Venus passed its maximum brightness around the beginning of March and will be getting dimmer.

a sun is a star so it would be considered both dimmer .

There are stars that are much brighter than our Sun, and others that are much dimmer. In any case, our Sun is in the top 10 percentile - meaning that the large majority of stars are dimmer than our Sun.

Ground circuit. 25 Year old ground is telling you that it is getting corroded. Clean the male on the light and the female on the connecter. If no change, work backwards in the circuit, cleaning all grounds, until brightness is restored

The Sun is bigger than some stars and smaller than others. It is brighter than some stars and dimmer than others. Relative to the Earth it is much closer than all other stars.

It wouldn't look like anything, since we'd all be dead. It would be one of the brighter stars in the sky, but not spectacular; it would be significantly dimmer than Sirius.

Yes. While the sun is much dimmer when view from Eris, it is still brighter than any other star.

The weather was significantly warmer than usual.

One side of a mountain range will have significantly less precipitation than the other side due to the height of the mountain. The clouds that carry the water for precipitation, may be blocked by the tall mountains.

Yes, but this is only based on the number of users and the US has significantly more people than other countries.

Sounds correct-- clean all connections and perhaps run a ground wire from headlight body directly to ground for test

Dimmer requires less energy for the same reason it is easier for us to lift on pund than twenty pounds; its easier.
