My passenger headlight is alot dimmer than the driver side. i went and bought a new headlight and its still alot dimmer. when i have them both plugged in. if i go and unplug the driver side headlight they both shut off. if i unplug the passenger side headlight (this is the one thats alot dimmer) it only turns off that one. Please help me cause i cant drive at night due to this
You've got a grounding wire issue on the right side headlight.
trace the wire that goes to ground and make sure the connection is clean and tight... check for corrosion around the wire terminals and in the connector...

Just fixed my Cobalt headlamp that had the same issue. I initially checked the condition of the fuse so determine if it was burned, or its terminal corroded. Next I checked the terminal of the connector that connected to the lamp. I found that the gap at the middle terminal appeared to be too wide, and hypothesized that there was no contact to carry current to the bulb. So with a small screw driver, I pushed the contact at the terminal slightly closer so as to make contact with the bulb terminal. Tested the headlight, and dimness is gone. Why the gap was wider? I don't know. I can't only surmise.
