I got new headlights i put in yesterday and i turned them on and they worked, then when i put them on the high beams the drivers side headlight got dim, then when i put them back on regular it was still dim. So i go to put the old ones back in and the drivers side was still dim no matter what i do. Also my SVS light came on, so i dunno what is causing this, but if anyone knows what the problem is, please let me know, thanks.

Check the headlight socket.

You might need a new 9007/9004 headlight socket.

If you are using higher wattage than stock headlight bulbs, the headlight socket plastic housing starts melting & contaminates the headlight socket's metal contacts.

actually that could be it because i did put in higher wattage bulbs but they were only in for a minute. I did notice when i pressed down on the socket the light got brighter so it might actually be that. i dunno ill check. But those bulbs were 80/100 watts. Which might be a little bright for those sockets. My friend installed the same ones but havent had any problems yet...
