I just installed a set of raxiom smoked halo lights in a 2005 v6 mustang and the drivers head will return to low beam

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the bulbs? Have you checked the fuses?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Mustang yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have placed the oem bulb in the oem connector and the bulb returns to dim. connected the raxiom light back up and the light does not return to din. however when I tap the headlight the light rreturns to low beam.

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).

  • Although I work here everyday, please understand it is not all day and rarely morning time.
  • To get the most from me and the best experience, please give me the best details you can.
  • The website will offer you a phone call option for more $$. Some I do fulfill and some I do not.
  • Thanks, let's get started.

Are you saying you have the lights on high beam and they work than without changing anything the drivers headlight on its on goes from high beam to low beam?

Have you done electrical wire testing at the head light connector to see if the issue is the car or the headlights?

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
