Re: instrument panel brake lights
If the headlights don't come on or are very dim, it probably isn't charging the battery. That would indicate the alternator or connections to it. Unless the battery went bad. If you have a volt meter, check the voltage at the battery when it's running. I'm originally from Traverse City, Mi. area, I don't envy you at all. Our temps are upper 40s at night and upper 50s during the day. That's actually about 10º above normal.
