Check the fuse for the passenger side.It is under the hood. it may not be making good contact. wiggle it a little bit and see if it makes any difference. if not, check where the the ground wires are connected to the chasis. See if thats not the problem.

Why do my lights come on when they are in the off position when i run new ground wire to ground on headlamp?


You found the ground. Did they come on when you grounded it? or when you put the key in the ignition/start it? If they came right on, remove the wire. You'll have to trace the wires back to the fuse panel, Ohm meter helps. If the wires are good, your looking at replacing the fuse panel. If they come on with the key, this is kind of normal. Depends on the daylight. The body control over rides the switch and turns them on. DRL(day time running lights)

Why is my Passenger headlamp dim. No other lights affected on right side.


The passenger side is grounding threw the drivers side. When you pull the drivers side light the other looses it ground. It is actually grounded threw the bulb. The reason it is dim. It could be the plug. Find the ground and run a new one to the bulb from the body.

Drivers side headlamps are dim the passenger side is fine went over everything i can think of replaced both bulbs, new headlamp connection, has 12v to the bulb.the headlamps are aftermarket enzo projecters


You are losing power to the head lamp due to a bad wire or a connection or a bad grounding. Check wiring along the harness. see if if it gets warm after the lapmp has been on for a while. Getting 12 V volts without the bulb is not an indication that it gets 12V when the lamp is on. It could be a dirty fuse holder, again it will get warm if it is bad after you have left the lamps on for a while

On dim all four headlights are on, but the inner


first i would want to know that all the headlamps are in good working order. it kind of sounds like these are also bad bulbs. you will also need to look for good ground wires just behind the headlamp assemblies. to answere your question, YES. if things were not repaired properly and without attention to detail then you could have wiring issues. on the plus side it doesnt sound too difficult. try these items first.

2003 jeep grand cherokee radiator fan doesn't turn on


Disconnect the fan plug and hot wire it to the battery if the fan dosen't run, replace it. Otherwise, check the relay. The system operates by the temp sender sending a signal to the computer that activates the relay that turns the fan on. Fan should also come on with A/C.

This sounds like a loose connection/bad wire somewhere for the low beam lights. Can't really give you more information without seeing the vehicle, and wiring diagram for the circuit. Usually, things that go on and off when hitting bumps are connection/wiring problems. The fact that one of your low beam headlamps burnt supports this theory. Bad connections or wiring mean lower voltage, thus higher amperage at the bulb, motor or whatever it's running, which makes them burn a lot quicker.
