View Full Version : what's wrong with my bright?

07-27-2006, 04:27 PM
Does anybody know why my passenger side bright doesn't work? It works just fine when i just have the regular headlights on, but when i hit the lever for the brights only my drivers side bright comes on. I checked and all the other bulbs are working right. I'd appreciate any help that i get. Thanks.

its probibly burnt out, you have 2 differant fillaments inside on your bulb. if not its probibly the high beam wire going to it

yea im guessin the high is burnt out also, what kinda bulbs are they? did you replace them lately?

thanks for the quick replies guys. well i got a brand new headlamp assembly a few days ago (the lens on my old one is all clouded up) and it came with a new bulb in it already & the bright didnt work so i swapped it with my previous bulb & the bright didnt work on it either, so if it's the wire how should i check it, is there a certain voltage i should get on the 3 contacts from the harness? the bulbs are basic 9007 65/55w

if you have a multimeter, put your highs on and then test the high + and - and if you dont have 12v then its the wireing

well if they worked before he bought the new headlamp assembly then i dont see why they wouldn't work unless he accidently sliced the high beam wire, which is something that would be noticeable

i'm not sure if the bright worked before i got the new assembly or not, i'll probably just replace the wiring for it & see if that's the problem

Swap your headlights. If the problem moves then you have a bulb problem. If not then a wiring problem.

I replaced the connector and that fixed it. I should've did that first cuz that was the problem when my abs & trac light were staying on, once i replaced the connector that plugs into the hub the light went away for good. Well thanks for the help guys, i appreciate it
