Dimming headlight - singular
I was driving along singing to myself one night. The birds were chirping and the stars were winking at me. Everything was alright... [img]images/graemlins/beach.gif[/img]
Then I look down and see my high-beam indicator light was on, but very dim. So I flash my headlights and it comes on bright and then dims when I let go of the lever. Then I notice that I can only see one headlight reflecting off of the road. So I'm thinking, "headlight out". I get stopped and look at it. Its on, but very dim. So I think, "ah, fixing to go out". So I replace it. Its bright and shining and I go on...
Next thing I notice, my high beam indicator is doing it again. So I stop and look and sho' nuff, my pass. headlight is dim again. I pop the hood and wiggle the harness to see if its loose, its not. I then grab the wires (which are noticeably hot) near the harness and wiggle ever so slightly and my headlight brightens right up.
I'm thinking that the connectors in the harness are probably corroded. What do you guys think?
