Howdy everyone. I have an interesting problem and was curious if anyone else has experienced this:
I noticed the lights on my '04 Screw (Lariat) are a little dim at night. Brights are great but the dims are pretty dim. I switched the switch over from "automatic" to "on" and they are much brighter on "on" then on "automatic". Has anyone else experienced this situation???
Thanks for the response. If I understand the DRL system, it should switch from DRL to normal lights when it is dark enough to need them. I wonder if the sensor on mine is not making the switch....thus DRL at night.
It's brighter where you don't want it with fog lights on. Unless you're only going 10 mph, you will be looking much further ahead than the illuminated area of the fogs. I especially hate fog lights at highway speeds 'cause they make my night vision worse and just seem to "strain" the peepers. YMMV
That's my original question. I don't know if it's "just the way they are" or if it's a problem. Mine is quite a bit brighter on "on" then auto. My best guess is that it is a shorter "path" directly from the on switch to the headlights than through the photocell (darkness detector) and then back to the headlights when the switch is set to "auto." I really don't think there should be much, if any difference. Interesting
