Question about Buick LaCrosse

The headlights only work on Bright. The dim

The headlights only work on Bright. The dim lights are not working in my 2005 Buick La Crosse. I have been searching for a solution and your solution that it is a "wiring problem" is too broad a category since the Dealer can't find the problem either. It only happens at Night and works fine in the Daytime.

Could be dimmer switch,may heat up and kill lights or maybe headlamp switch, your at a point were you are going to have to replace parts,first thing is headlamp switch, take apart but leave it pulged in when lights dont work install new switch and see if that works, this is not a diffuclt problem dont know why dealer could not pin point,anyway start there, good luck.

If the low beam head light relay is fine,and the dimmer switch checks out fine,then look at the out put wire from the dimmer switch to the head light relay,check for voltage,then check the relay to see if it energizes.Then follow the wire(out put)from the relay to the head light.Now if power from the dimmer is getting to the relay,but the relay is not energizing,look for a bad relay,or bad relay ground wire.

No dim headlights


Check low beam bulbs for being burned out. Maybe one burned out and was not noticed until the second was burned out.

Headlights


I doubt it, but its possible.
If the alternator is working and the battery stays charged, I would check the voltage at the lights, as well as the ground connection.

2005 buick lacrosse cxl... dash lights and interior lights are going dim to bring to dim to bright very rapidly


First, check that the battery connections are clean and not corroded. If not look for the ground wires that connect to the chassis. Check to see if any are corroded or loose. Finally if that has no effect, you have a short somewhere in your wiring. The easy way to isolate it is to pull the fuses for each device one by one and see if the dimming stops. The last one to cause the dimming is the problem. If it happens when you hit a bump it also might be a ground fault in the interior car grounds....good luck!

Headlights only work on bright


i had this happen with my dodge ram 1500. the guy i bought it from put 350 dollar moon lit lights in with leds and they looked impressive but the issue was that they didnt go bright and i could only see 40 feet in front of me and i was sure taping led flashlights would have done me more good that those stupid headlights. then i had the idea of if the brights work and the dims dont then that means no electricity is getting to the dims so i decided to bridge the power from the bright headlight to the dims and it made all four work. now they all work, and only on bright. so im figuring there is a issue with the wiring in the truck. so this is a temporary solution if you really need just plain old lights like i did because i live out in the country
