The common cause is that the wire for dip beam is badly corrioded and not making a good connection.
Unplug the connector and inspect all the wires and terminals at the headlight.
Clean and replace the terminals if needed.

I just bought new headlight bulbs but one light is way brighter then the other, my left is brighter then the right and stays dim even when i turn on the night lights. whats the issue?

There is the issue with the wattage of bulb you have got for the vehcicle.

And also due to a new bulb it shines brighter then the old one.

get the old one also repaced to get the equal brightness

My passenger head light went dim and i changed it to a brand new bulb already and it is still low


You got a bad ground connection somewhere.
You have a voltage drop,where you shouldn't have,and as a result the bulb is dim.
Check the bulb socket/connector and related wiring, to that head light

Left headlight is dim - like it has a bad ground. Right is fine. DRL are same as regular lights. High and Low beam on left same dim condition. Fuses are OK switch checks OK. Replaced the relay with no...


i think you hit the nail on the head with the ground problem,if you remove the bulb from the head light assembly,wiggle the black wire to see if the bulb gets brighter,if it does remove the bulb and clean and tighten the ground wire end.if it does not get brighter from a wiggle,connect the ground end of a test light to the positive post of the battery and probe the black wire,test light should light,if so replace the light socket.

Head Lights


If only the headlights are dull and not putting out the correct light, I would suspect a bad ground (earth) connection somewhere in the headlight circuit or the fuse for the headlight circuit. Something is causing excessive resistance and causing less voltage to be provided for the headlights. If all the lights are dimly lit, then I would check the charging system, the battery and the ground cable for the battery, chassis, and engine.
