Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Ok with your turn signals on and vehicle running, check voltage at left and right turn fuse in drivers dash panel location and let me know what voltages you get

Only right headlight is dim
Chevy Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

ok take off the charger and try that again , never start a vehicle and apply a charger, this could cause issues or damage to your computers or other circuits
