Dimheadlights on dodge diesel

I have a 2003 Dodge diesel 2500. The headlights are so dim I am worried about driving at night. I have had the lights checked many times at dealer. There is no problem with voltage, proper bulbs, proper aiming, looks good to the dealer. Can't get them to keep the truck and drive at night, they claim an insurance problem. The worst time is dusk and dawn. I know I have a problem because when other vehicles pass me at night on the road I can see much better while they are passing me. It seems to me that the headlights lack a beam such as found on my Chevy and ford P/U's. They also appear to have a yellow tint to the where other vehicles appear much whiter. I have tried different bulbs which do not seen to make a difference. Any tests, suggestions, products or sources of information would be appreciated. I've run out of ideas. Thanks for your time and help.

    I have the same issue as this. The lens is perfectly clear, I have since upgraded to a piaa light but still not the best. Think I am going to build a light bar for the front of the truck and put 4 aircraft landing lights on it and that will cure the problem

If the ground is good I would take a careful look at the light socket itself. There may be corrosion inside or on the power wire where it goes into the socket or it may just be making poor contact.
You can get a replacement one at any auto parts store. The last one I got was about $10. Get some heat shrink tube to cover your splices, it does a much better job of sealing the splice than tape. Hope this helps.

Not too much amperage. HID lights use less amps. Duh. The circuit is showing a failure in the HID kit from not enough amps so it turns off. You need to add a resistor.
