Put your flash in manual mode until you've had a chance to learn how ETTL mode works. If you are a newbie, it does NOT work the way you think it does.

 

I'm just guessing at the root of your problem, of course, since you provided no information about the actual symptoms you're seeing. But I think it's a good guess.

What camera mode and settings are you using for these night shots?

Do you use a tripod?

Are you photographing a close subject (e.g. A person) using flash?

What sort of night shots are these? (E.g. A city scene? A starry sky? Etc.)

A sample image (or two) can really help us understand what you are trying to achieve a likely identify your problem. If you do post sample images, it is very important to include the settings that you used for those shots.

It is simple.  There is not enough light.  You need more light and it makes little difference how.

Give us more details.  The more the better and a sample photo is better yet.

A corollary to this is that if your camera is not moving (e.g. on a tripod) and the subject is not moving (e.g. a landscape, cityscape, etc.) then there is always enough light.  The photons are there... you just have to give the camera time to collect enough of them.

That's just another way of saying that given enough time, you can make a nighttime scene look like a daytime scene. Of course the objective is often more subtle than that.
