Get your Alternator and Battery checked. Autozone and Oreillys, to name a few places, will check them for free.

Your truck is 12+ years old, some of the plastic in the lens could be clouded. There are kits to repolish the lens.

If those ideas fail to help, pull the sockets and check for 12 volts at the bulb. If you are not getting 12 volts, ask the Autoparts place if your truck has a separate headlight relay.

Headlights only work on bright

i had this happen with my dodge ram 1500. the guy i bought it from put 350 dollar moon lit lights in with leds and they looked impressive but the issue was that they didnt go bright and i could only see 40 feet in front of me and i was sure taping led flashlights would have done me more good that those stupid headlights. then i had the idea of if the brights work and the dims dont then that means no electricity is getting to the dims so i decided to bridge the power from the bright headlight to the dims and it made all four work. now they all work, and only on bright. so im figuring there is a issue with the wiring in the truck. so this is a temporary solution if you really need just plain old lights like i did because i live out in the country

MOT failure

I can almost guarantee somebody has installed your bulbs the wrong way round I've seen this before many times, of course we're talking about Main beam headlight bulbs, I speak as a Renault technician.
I suggest you take it to the main dealer, I hope I have been helpful.

Head lamp does not turn on, but bright light does in chrysler

It sounds like its a 'duel filiment' headlight; 2 separate filiments, 1 for highbeams & 1 for lowbeams. (Same as a brake light/directional bulb) Replace the headlight with a new one.

LHD to RHD Beam Bender

The lights can be adjusted manually with adjusters on the back of the headlight nacelle. You can ask the MOT Test Station to do it for you before the test as they project it onto a board or into a viewfinder. The other way would be to purchase new RHD headlight units, perhaps from a scrap yard. My first car in the UK was a 1959 Volkwagon Beetle LHD that was originally registered in Austria. I re-registed it as FAR 120K. People were puzzled that it was LHD, Brand New, and why it had 140 (kph) on the speedometer. :>)
