1) battery: clean posts.
2) clean and inspect any ground wires.
3) test battery with volt meter.
4) since the other light works remove any. thing that is in the way of getting to light bulbs.
5) twist socket and bulb from light assembly.
NOTE: DO NOT TOUCH BULB with hands, oils from your skin will cause the bulb to burn out.
6) if bulbs are burnt replace, test lights before reconnecting everything.
7) inspect wires for damage and corrosion.
8) use meter to test if you are getting power to lights. If no power to lights when turned on check connection to switches .
9) check switch.
10) check fuses, get wiring diagram.
11) fix or repair as required.

SOURCE: oil pressure guage on a 96 chevy truck

sounds like you still have a wire harness problem for the oil pressure sending unit. if you spliced a new pigtail to the wire harness you may still have a bad connection or there is still a damaged wire farther up in the harness.

TEST
remove both bulbs from the lamps but leave them on their wires switch on and see if the bulbs are still different brightness if not they the passenger side lamp housing has damaged mirror is dirty or missalined and needs adjustment. if they are different brightness then this may be a earthing problem.

Hi. Since the headlight on the driver side is working then we dont have any problem with the fuse or relay. Check the wiring and the socket of the passenger headlight if it is intact to the bulb. If it is intact, then this could be a headlight problem. Time to replace the passenger headlight.

Sounds like your ground wire is broken (which could be broken, overheated, loose or corroded) If the color of the copper has changed(looks gray) or is corroded then you must replace the plug.

On dim all four headlights are on, but the inner


first i would want to know that all the headlamps are in good working order. it kind of sounds like these are also bad bulbs. you will also need to look for good ground wires just behind the headlamp assemblies. to answere your question, YES. if things were not repaired properly and without attention to detail then you could have wiring issues. on the plus side it doesnt sound too difficult. try these items first.

Hello;
It sounds as if the main power lead could be loose powering the dash. There are several main power blocks, make sure your connections are clean and tight. I have seen the circuit board for the dash fail but not often. Hope this helps.
Thanks;
