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.

The driver side headlight is dim. This is caused by loose
ground contact of the headlight ground terminal. Have
a check on this by tightening it up or reconnecting to
good ground (chassis).

I have run into a few of these and what I found was water getting into the wires that go to these headlights.The harness is just below the battery area.It will be easier to get to from the bottom of the vehicle.You will have to remove the plastic cover from the harness and the electrical tape.Find the dark blue and the orange wires.The dark blue is for the drivers side and the orange is for the passengers side.There should be 2 of each.Look real closely and see if you see a spot where the wires are slightly swelled up.These wires are only 18 gauge so it is not easy finding the bad spot.One thing you can try is pulling on the wires a little and sometimes they will separate where the bad spot is.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Remove headlight 07 pontiac G6?


If your talking about a dome light bulb. You don't have to remove the headliner. Look at the lens where the bulb goes. You will see a small slot on one of the side of it. Insert a screw driver and pry down on it and it will pop off. Same with side lights in the headliner.

real interesting... there should be no relation to the "drive" and the head light. current drawn by the starter causes the lights to go out or dim. Check the headlamp relay and for corrosion on connector to lamp assemblies in the engine compartment. On back of assemblies there is a large diameter plastic retainer after you remove the wire clip. Turn counter clockwise and pull back. a wire clip should retain the bulb itself
