    I gotta 2001 5.3l Silverado and the passenger side high beam is dim. Its about half the brightness of the driver side high beam. When I attach my plow its the exact same thing. I checked all the bulbs and fuses and everything is fine. I went through all the wiring and connections and made sure they were all good. Only wire I didnt check out was the ground wire, it went into another wiring harness. Does the ground wire go to my headlight switch in the cab? Is there something else that I should check out? Any ideas? Thanks.

    Had the same issue before and it was the ground. Hope it is that simple for you.
