Weaker Passenger Headlight

Recommended Posts

Best of the season to all.

Have a little trouble spot I am trying to figure out with my passenger headlamp. On low beam it is weaker than the other buy enough to notice. High beams work fine both sides so I don't think its my ground but I am stumped as to what it may be. Fogs work fine and so do turns, only the low beam...

Any electrical specialists out there that can assist?

Thanks,

Don't dismiss the ground just yet. You probably need to pull the bulb out and check the contacts. A single corroded contact is

all it takes to make it dimmer. Also, I have heard that the bulb itself can, with age, become weaker.

What year is your LS?

It's a 91, bulbs are brand new, installed eagle headlights awile ago. Have had this issue for a couple years now. I was thinking of just running a new ground but because he highs work fine I.m wonderin if it may be the switch assembly.

Just remembered, when I first bought the car both worked just fine. One of the headlights was broken and water got in and blew the headlight bulb. Around the same time I was having the pwr strng system redone and they broke my original clockspring. They replaced but now Im wondering if they swapped out my entire switch assembly?
