My Lights Are Whack!

Recommended Posts

After noticing that my lighting appeared to be slightly less than adequate on the left side of my car (while driving) I decided to get out and check to see if a bulb was going out. To my surpise, I found all bulbs functional, but working in weird patterns!

When just my low beams are supposed to be on, the right low lamp is on full power, but the left low lamp AND the right high beam are on half power. When I flip over to highs, both right lamps work full power, but not the left.

I hypothesize that a relay is out... could it be worse? Are there important wires crossed somewhere?

You have a bad wiring connection. I doubt it is a relay as it cuts power and ads power not both.

It is either the controller for the lights or the wiring that has been damaged.

Clean your lenses and use a contact cleaner on your plugs. New bulbs, fuses, relays. Degraded wiring is very possible though. New harness? Ouch...
