Hello,
The headlights on my 2000 Focus Se are very dim, in fact when I turn them on there just a little brighter than the day running lights and the brights are fine.
Before I buy 2 new bulbs I was wondering if it could be both low beams going out at once or if the bulbs could just be dulling down , though if never heard of that happening.
Anyone had this happen with their headlights?

Thanks For You Help.

what happens when you give the car gas? Are they always dim? if so I would invest in some silverstars dont go with cheap ebay bulbs because high watts could lead to further problems. Make sure your harness isnt heating up if so you may have a bad ground try and find it and fix it, if all else fails get yourself some new bulbs.

I'll try some Silverstars as the wireing seems ok and the lights stay the same at higher revs.

Thanks

Check the voltage at the battery terminals, it should be at least mid 13's...

What year, model, engine, trans? How many miles? Any other electrical issues?

Using a voltmeter check voltage at battery and then at headlight connectors with engine running. Post readings.

In the future dont post under a ten year old post that may or may not have the same issue.
