Check the physical connections on the bulb connectors. I have had this problem before as well. More than likely the bulb connectors are dirty/corroded and need to be cleaned. A smile flat metal file should do the trick to clean the connectors. After you do that, be sure to put some dielectric grease on all the connections to keep them making good contact with the connections on the bulb.

My headlights are not very bright


If you have those lenses that get the yellow film over them then I would see about having them fixed and replace with quality bulbs. The bulbs could be getting weak and about ready to blow. They make a solution to apply to those lenses that yellow and from what I understand works pretty well.

Only brights work, dimly lit headlamps, no fog lamps


Recheck the bulb number. This happens when the wrong bulb number is installed. Otherwise it could be a bad headlight ground.

Headlight one side works on bright the other side works on dim


Try swapping the headlight bulbs or buying a known good bulb and testing that way. Sounds like a shorted bulb filament issue.
