Faulty relay. Or electrical problem. Lets just hope in your case its the relay. In my girlfriends Toyota corolla the relay was the one inside the drivers compartment just under the fuse box. The local autowreckers had one for $2.

In my case it was a little more complicated than this though. I replaced the relay and it was fine for a while, however the same thing happened a week later. A wire burned out from the back of the fuse box and was getting earthed somewhere. I replaced this the entire length of the wiring loom and problem fixed.

When is it safe to use your bright headlights?

It is safe to use the bright [highbeam] headlights when there is no oncoming traffic/drivers who could be blinded by the bright light. Also, it is unsafe to use highbeams when there is fog or smoke which would reflect the light back to you, thus reducing the distance which you can see.

Are series circuit's used in car headlights?

No, series circuits are not used in car headlights, because if one headlight were to go out the other would also, because the one light would make an incomplete circuit. Headlights are wired as parallel circuits because when one headlight goes out, the other is unaffected and stays as bright as it was before the other light went out.

Does the light from an oncoming vehicle's headlights cause your pupils to become larger?

No, they become smaller (constrict).The pupils become larger (dilate) to let in more light. The bright headlights would cause the eyes to let in less light, which means you will not be able to see anything clearly except those bright lights. You are "blinded" until your eyes adjust again, and by that time you may have veered off the road or had a collision.

The stereo light should not go out. It should get dimmer though. They assume that if your headlights are on, it is dark outside and you don't need as much light to read the radio display as you would in bright light.

If a car could travel at the speed of light would its headlights be of any use to the driver?

Yes, assuming a vessel prepared for travel at the light the headlight would work. No. Assuming a car could travel at the speed of light, and assume the headlights were isolated to feed the electricity to the bulbs, and assuming the bulb lit up, the light would not project forward through space lighting the way in front of the car, as the light from the headlights would be travelling at the same speed as the car, so it would just be black in front, assuming this is travelling through outer space.

I have a '91 Eddie Bauer and I don't know if my answer applies to a 93 model but get an electrician to check your dip/high beam and indicator unit on the steering column. I replaced mine and the problem of no dimmed headlights was fixed. The light switch always seems to run hot with lights on. Probably a short SOMEWHERE. You have to trace the wires to find it.
