If the lights are dim, you'll need to check the ground for the front lamps. The ground is G101 ( #3) and is located on the left front of the radiator support.

When my battery was dying the left front headlight would only show bright and the right one dim and sometimes bright. Now that the new battery is in only the right side dim is operational.


Your headlight brightness is unlikely due to battery; it's more likely due to bad ground connection on both sides. There should be a wire coming from each headlight connected to the car's chassis. Check that the connection is tight and not corroded. Clean and reattach as needed.

One head light lamp light is dim


If the headlights were not changed at the same time the dim one may be about to go out. If you change the dim one and not both of them the other one will most likely get dim while the other is still bright

I am sure that a 12 Volt bulb means it needs 12 Volts. Since you changed the bulb to the other side, why not check the voltage in the working side and see what it reads?

Sometimes the turnstalk can interfere with the lighting. Try pushing the Hazard switch several times and see if the headlights straighten out. I read that too much goes through the turnstalk and that using the Hazards can derail a contact inside the stalk.

If this does not help, you may need a headlight relay in the powerbox. One contact may be dirty or burned down for the wire it feeds. Unless you have a single wire feeding both low beams to the headlights, I would bet the left and right side come out directly through the relay.

Headlight one side works on bright the other side works on dim


Try swapping the headlight bulbs or buying a known good bulb and testing that way. Sounds like a shorted bulb filament issue.

You have a bad ground, look out by the battery for a bunch of black wires screwed to the body of the car, check that they have a clean and tight connection, scrap off any paint under the wires.
