    I got done with our last storm, plowed most of the night with the headlights off and then noticed my driver side light is barely lit?? It makes no difference high or low beam they are both slightly yellow at best and all turn and marker lights work fire.
    The plow is a Western MVP Ultra mount 8.6' poly. Just looking for suggestions as I don't want to mess with it too much its still under warranty and I am going to have them look at it before I mess anything.. I am worried about the module being bad and hope this isn't a sign:realmad:

    Check the voltage at the bulb. If it's 12 volts or better, the bulb is bad. If it's low, the wiring is the problem.

    Sounds like a bad ground to me.

    Are those the new Nighthawk or whatever Western calls them? Projector style with H13 bulbs? Swap bulbs from one side to the other.

    If that the case and it still under warranty, let them fix it at their cost........
