When troubleshooting headlights there are several components to consider. Older cars in the 60s 70s and 80s were simply controlled by a switch and a relay, then to the lights. Newer cars add the body control module or BCM and others have security systems installed. Each can control or override control of the lights. You can check the fuses, may be one or more, the headlight relays or wiring connections. If you are in a wet or dusty area or salty, then connections may be an issue, especially if you have had other related failures in the car. Flooded cars are susceptible to these types of problems. Aftermarket devices such as alarms are my first suspicion as those installers are usually not skilled in circuitry.

Taillight works when headlights are on, but does not shine brighter when braking or signaling


Change the bulb. When you press the pedal the brake switch changes the circuit to the 21w brighter circuit for the brake light.

I'd be willing to bet your dash lights don't work either when you turn the headlight on.change the headlight switch, it has a short, it's only about 11 dollars at advance auto, and is fairly easy to replace. my 93 chevy did same thing, changed headlight switch, problem solved

Dash and running lights does not work, everything


The fuse to the taillights/running lights?
It can't be a grounding problem if both taillights and dash don't work.
If only taillights don't work, it would be suspicious grounding.

Check the electrical grounds for the taillights. In fact, get a diagram and check all the easily accessible grounds. Many of these are in the engine bay.
