Dim headlight issue

    During a the last event while plowing with my Hiniker 3800 C Plow, I noticed that the stock plow light on the passenger side is very dim on high & low beam. The turn signal works fine.

    So today I decided upgrade the plow lights & also to try to fix the dim light issue.

    I bought a new set of Hiniker Quad halogen lights & installed them. I turned the lights on & on the passenger side light is still dim. There are no visible loose or burnt wires & the plugs seem to be ok. Anyone have any ideas on what may be causing the light to be dim?

    Yup, 99% likely it's the ground wires, maybe on truck, maybe on plow.

    Update: It was a bad pin/ground on the truck side headlight harness. It's all good now & looking forward to the next pushpayup
