I have a 2003 chevy cavalier. My driver side headlight does not come on good. Its dim or something. Replace the whole headlight. And still the same.. Car runs and starts fine. What do i do.? and how?
Check the light socket and the ground for the headlights, a bad ground can cause a dim lamp.
Where do i check the ground? The socket is new came with new headlight.
Just trace it back to the mounting bolt, it is usually the black wire on the socket.
Ok. And how do i know if it is bad? If it is bad do i have to go to a mecanic or can i buy the part at autozone?
It will most likely be bolted to metal part of the body, just unbolt it use some emery cloth to,clean both the mounting surface and the ring connector, if the connector is corroded too bad you can but a replacement ring connector and a special pair of pliers to crimp it or if you want a really good connection you can use the solder and shrink wrap method, all of that is readily available from your local auto parts store.
Ok i will check tomarrow. Thank you very much.
