COULD A IMPROPERLY INSTALLED TAIL LIGHT CAUSE MY CAR TO LOSE POWER?
1994 Ford Explorer
Car loses power, idles erratically, headlights dim when at a stop... but when headlights aren't on, car runs fine when at a stop... was side swiped and back tail light was replaced... could that be the problem?... had diagnostic performed and they were dumbfounded as to why my vehicle presents with current problem...

I don't know if it was properly installed since i'm a novice... my dad saw all my lights dimming while my car was erratically idling... the odd thing is, this only happens when my lights are on
The mechanic said he ran a diagnostic and everything was fine... would he of checked my alternator with a routine diagnostic? and yes when I rev the engine the lights brighten
Ok, some sleuthing says you have a bad ground somewhere. like from battery to body/engine?
