My left side headlight is doing a weird thing. It's OK on high beam but on low beam it's barely at 30%. The right side light is normal. I haven't had the lights working but a couple months but this is the first time I've noticed a problem.

The belief that there was nothing

no reason, creating everything and

rearranged itself for no reason whatsoever
into self-replicating bits which then turned
into dinosaurs.
Makes perfect sense.

Well Jim I suspect that the reason that you haven't heard from anyone today is that all the
obvious reasons for it being dim have been discussed numerous times here. Changed the
bulb? Dirty contact, connector or switch? Broken wire causing high resistance and
voltage drop at break? Taint much else that could cause it.

It doesn't! I put a new muffler on, then I could hear how loud the trans was, so I put a floor mat and dynamat in, now I can hear my roof resonate......

Well I went to the garage to test Denny's myriad of possibles and the D@mm thing is working now. I guess I'll have to evict that hamster.

I think you may have something there Denny. I just noticed tonight my brake lights aren't working, I spent most of two weeks with it up on the lift dealing with underside issues. I may have knocked the wires loose on the pressure switch. I'll check it out tomorrow and see if I can't break the legs on that leprechaun.

When I think DIM lights, I always check poor ground. Been there several times!
