You have a bad ground on the left low beam. Using a test light connected to ground see what wire is positive with low beams on. Using a piece of electrical wire connect one end to ground and with the headlight connector connected to the headlight and headlights on stick the other end into back of the connector at the ground wire. If the light gets brighter, you can cut the original ground wire to the connector ( 2-3 inches from headlight connector) and run a new wire from ground and connect it to the wire at the connector. Hope this is helpful.

    You have a bad ground connection for the light that is dim. Replacing the harnesses with the ones that came with the new lights will most likely fix the problem.

Low Beam Drivers Side doesn't work ... low voltage,


Power for the headlights on the Left side (High and low beam.) comes from the same fuse... The ORANGE wire and the ORANGE/BLACK are the same, they connect in the harness. If you only lack the 12v to make the light work connect them at the headlight assembly.

If your low beam also lacks ground the Left low beam ground is shared with the right low beam ground... Run a wire from left low beam DARK BLUE to right low beam DARK BLUE/WHITE.

If its not working now then your cursed, seek a witch doctor.

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.

Fuse for window regulator (circuit breaker) on 13 position auxiliary relay panel. The wiring connectors are located at the lower left and right side kick panels. The auxiliary relay panel is located above the lower kick panel above the pedals.
