Asked by Jan 09, 2016 at 01:09 AM about the 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Here's the the little problem that turned into a big
problem and more money coming out of my
pockets. I had 1 dim head light, I replaced the
bulbs and the lamp but it still showed dim, I had a
mechanic come too look at it, It was the wires he
said, He fixed the light by attaching the wires to my
battery, Car ran good for bout 3days now its
shutting off and now the battery light is on. I asked
him is them lights killing my battery he said no it
has to be the alternator, Bought a brand new
alternator battery light still on, Bought a brand new
battery light still on, Figured it was the headlights
so I untached the wires that was attched to my
battery, Battery light still and sometimes it doesn't
crank on the first try. Im so frustrated and
confused. Someone please help.

Find a new mechanic and have the headlight wiring system repaired properly. The battery might go out if this is done. The new mechanic can also see what other issues you have if that isn't it.

That's not the way to fix lights- get rid of the mechanic AND the car-
