Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The dimmer could be the cause of the change in intensity of the lights but that wouldn't be related to the trans issue. There is little correlation between the lights and transmission, but it's possible that you could have a charging related issue causing both problems.

Does the trans stay in one gear until the key is cycled?

What year, model and engine is the vehicle?
