i have a 99 ram1500 quad cab the headlight is really dim on the drivers
side even after changing bulb, but the passenger side is fine i did hit
something on that side 2 years back but was fixed at shop. any ideas?
Summit Racing has a conversion wiring harness that should solve your
problem. It's a complete kit with everything you need, and it's on a
clearance sale for $20. I got one of these but haven't installed it yet. I'm
planning on doing it this weekend after I'm finished with my oil and grease
zerk fun. It's not very complicated. Installation should take less than half
I don't think he has an aftermarket headlight/bulb. The OEM wiring is
fine for the OEM bulb. It sounds more like you have a bad ground wire
to the dim bulb. Trace the headlight's ground wire back to where it is
grounded to the chassis and check the quality of the connection.
Good point, John. It could be a simple ground problem causing the trouble.
IMHO, this harness is a worthwhile upgrade to the OEM headlight wiring even
if you aren't having any problems. It does apply to OEM headlights/bulbs. It
reduces the voltage drop at the headlights that Dodge designed into the
system to begin with, as well as any voltage drop caused by dirty
connections and aging wiring. The result is brighter headlights, and longer
bulb and headlight switch life.
