    Headlight problem? driver side is very dim

    I noticed the other day that my drivers side headlight is a lot dimmer than my passenger headlight. I put a new headlight in yesterday and it was the same way. Almost like it's got a loose ground somewhere. Anyone have any ideas?

    Did ya check the fluid leveL?
    Try changin the "bright" bulb with the "dull" bulb and see if the problem is reversed. If the light isnt flickering chances are it isnt a ground, check around behind the headlight for a dirty or corr. ground. Could it be just not adjusted right?

    I did switch them out with one another and the passenger side was still dim in the drivers side light. It's not just the adjustment. I can turn the lights on in my garage and the passenger side is very bright and the driver side looks very dim.

    If you have a multimeter you can see how much voltage you are getting at the socket and if you think its the ground you can try and externaly ground it.
    Take a small piece of wire and put in with bulb, between the bulb and housing and then ground somewhere on frame and see if it gets any brighter.
