It may be poor wiring that is causing added resistance, thus limiting the voltage output to the bulbs.

Ithought that too..so I changed the harness from the drivers side over and they did the same thing..in toher words the trouble didnt move to the drivers side..their was no cutting and splicing envolved. :confused:

I would check the ground, especially on the "dim" side.make sure you have a good one, scraping any and all paint and cleaning any oil/contamination off.

You might try adding a ground dedicated to that side for insurance.

You beat me to it. Yeah, it sounds like your ground isn't very good, or you have wires touching, so its grounding out. Either way, it has to be something to do w/ ur ground.

no, its not suppose to. the high is sucking some from the low, meaning its shorted somewhere. you might have to check the wirings between the two.

Yeah, I would defintely check the ground or the connections on the housings themselves. Its not being properly grounded if your highs are on also.
