Hello and thank you for your question,Is the light din on both the high beam and low beam?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No, the high beams work great its just the passanger side low beam thats dim. Wondered if maybe a ground ?
Expert:  Ron replied 10 months ago.
Okay at the socket connector on the light take your volt meter and see if you are getting battery voltage (12 volts) on the Red wire which is the low beam circuit . If you have battery voltage on this wire then check and see if you have a good ground at the same connector on the black wire. Check this for me and let me know the results and we can work from there to get this resolved for you.
