Default dimming

yeah, they all do it, common.. some are worse than others, if you drain the battery down a little, and then start it up, .. recharge it will not dim as bad for some reason

Well, I guess it is settled then. Until it actually dies instead of just dimming hardcore, I guess I will just live with it. Im not interested in throwing a ton of money on a new alternator and bracket and belt and trying to get it to all play well together until there is a real problem then. I just thought maybe it could be improved somehow, but GM didn't give us that option. haha

Thanks everyone for all the help anyways! c2
