Check the ground wire to your head light. A bad ground will cause the light to be dim.

Thank you for using fixya and be safe

Check your fuses. There is sometimes a separate file for each headlight. One may be about to go out and need replaced.

\1991 geo metro dim headlight pass side


in low beams or high or both?
that is caused by:
1: bad held lamp. old lamps can go dim.
swap left and right, if dim follows bulb, bingo weak bulb or wrong type bulb. buy matching blubs (same brand and P/n)
2: bad wiring to lamp. damaged wires, or connectors to same.
4: bad combo switch. (if low beams)
5: bad fuse or holder, corrosion , to either.
head lamp fuses. there are 2. left and right.
6: hackers, many hackers put in wrong lights. inspect it.

The headlight on the driver side is dim but ok on the passenger side, i changed the bulb but did not make any difference


Dim bulb means full Voltage is not flowing across that bulb's filament. So it's either the supply side or the return (ground) side. If it's on the same wiring harness as the other side that works properly, then most likely it's the grounding connection to that bulb that has a high electrical resistance.
Poke around to see if you can find a crappy ground screw that needs reattachment. Failing that, Google your car model and problem to find a DIY solution. Electrical problems can be expensive if you're paying a guy big bucks to go digging.

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.
