Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a 1998 honda civic. One headlight is much dimmer than the other. As if it were not getting enough electricity. The light intensity doesn't change when I start the car and it is not the bulb. How can I fix this issue?
As long as you tried another bulb to confirm it is not the bulb, I would check the ground (-) circuit 1st. Cut your self a long piece of wire, find the ground wire to the bulb in question. Near to the socket, peel back some of the insulation , temporarily twist your spare wire the exposed section and run the other end to the ground (-) post of the battery. Now turn the key and headlights on and check the brightness level of the head lights.

Open the hood find where the light are,there is a black socket going to them turn to the left and pull out,do not touch the new bulb with your fingers or the oil from them will burn the bulb out.

you need to remove the front wing on the side that the bulb has blown,and the centre panel, then there are 3 torx bolts holding the light assy in.then its just the bulb unit clips out.
