I asked another question yesterday. A piece of metal hit my passenger head light.

I replaced the bulb only and it was very dim. So I then replace the entire unit and bought

the highest bulb avail. and it's still very dim. I switched the bulb with the driver head light and it works fine??

2000 toyota tunda 2wd 3.7ltr v-8 extended cab.

Toyota Mechanic: john, The Car Guy replied 8 years ago
if the light is dim its likley a bad , broken, damahed or loose ground. When lights illuminate dim there is a ground issue
