IT is a 2000...

IT is a 2000 tundra FWD SR5 the drivers headlight is dim even after replacement and the highbeams do not work and the indicator light in dash does not work. The fog lights work and turn signals, brake, and license plate work.

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

The fuses were checked out. New fuses were used with no change in the condition.

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

Yes, checked fuses and changed the bulb.

Hi Chad, I replaced the head relay but no change. The left headlight is dim all other lights work. To review. The fuses check out ok and the replaced relay did not correct the situation. The weather is terrible. I will check the voltage on the three wires to the light tomorrow if I can and let you know how it works out. Any suggestions?

hey man, sorry to hear that ,

let me know on the wires reading tomorrow ?

Hello, Chad
The left head light has 13 volts on the car side of the fuse but has only two volts at the headlight plug on the blue red wire. This wire should have the same 13 volts I assume. I will review on removing the harness/fuse box and see if I can locate a left headlight harness. Would that be right or do you have any suggestions? Thanks

You are correct , we have 13 volts on one side and we are only seeing 2 volts the other side , something is shorted out between fuse box and headlight left
