My head lights get brighter during acceleration. I have replaced the alternator. What causes the battery light and the air bag light to flash on and off when driving a 1994 Ford Taurus Wagon 3.8L?

your alternator was never the problem. Its your battery and/or charging system. the reason the lights get brighter is because the car isn't getting the propper amount of energy from the battery and is having to directly draw off of the alternator. when the engine is rev'ed the alternator spins faster creating more current to charge the battery, witch is why the lights brighten at higher rpms.

You recently replaced the battery and alternator on your 96 rodeo now the battery light is on on the dash faintly why?

The voltage regulator (which is inside the alternator) on 97 rodeo's are controlled via the PCM/ECM (Power Control Module/Engine Control Module). A remanufactured alternator for the 97 Rodeo as well as the 97 Passport (Honda), usually will fhow failure while tested in car. On the bench test, however, the alternator tests normal. Aside of the normal problems to be ruled out, ie; alternator belt tension, check for loose connections within and around the alternator, try an original factory alternator. Is this problem affecting your blower motor?

In a 97 rodeo how do you replace the heater-ac control switch no fuses are bad and heating fan stopped working?

CAUTION!!! This may be a problem with the alternator and the charging. Blower fan will stop working if alternator is not charging. You may also see the battery light and brake light staying on as well! Advance Auto Parts or Auto-zone can test your alternator/battery.

Is light brighter than you can perceive it?

This is a difficult question to answer, as the brightness of light is itself perceived, rather than actual. In some ways, light is brighter than you can perceive it, simply because another person can perceive that light to be brighter than you yourself perceived it. The brightness of light to the eye is relative.

If you continue to increase the intensity of light that a plant receives what happens?

As the light intensity increases, the rate of photosynthesis will increase and then level off no matter how much brighter the light gets. This is because another limiting factor such as carbon dioxide or water level stops it. If the light gets too bright the heat can burn the leaves.
