    I am having the same problem with my passenger high beam light. I changed mine also thinking it was burnt out but no luck it's still not working. Did you ever get it figured out? Did you have to go see the overprices pro's?

Took it into the dealership they fixed it but with a $350 price tag , a month later same problem, so i took two wires and connected them to the side that works fine and connected it to the bad side so they run on the same circit, works fine now . You just have to make sure your battery is disconnected first.

Had same problem-took to an auto electric shop and it was a corroded wire (unsure which) but was repaired for around $85 (electrical diagnosis like this can be a pain in the *** and I let the pros do it-lot less hassle

You may not be getting full voltage over to that light I would check the connector and see if you have a loose wire or frays.

I have a dim headlight on my passenger side .This is on both low beam and high beam.I replaced the bulbs and the problem is still there.

Sounds like a bad ground. Newer cars have a dedicated ground wire going to the headlight plug. Could be broken, could be corroded. Check the wires with a simple 12 volt tester. Hope that helps

Right headlight is brighter than the left headlight

Probably a bad ground or bad connection on the headlight that's dim. Try wiggling the wires on the bulb connection if that's not the problem/ Try and find where that headlight gets it's ground.
