annoying wiring problem, help!

Before my jeep goes off to its new owner I am trying to combat a minor wiring issue. The drivers side headlight is dimmer than the passenger side and the high beams stopped working. Could this be a ground? They used to work fine until I messed with the wiring. Any other ideas?

Re: annoying wiring problem, help!

Try unplugging the headlight and re-plugging it. Oxidation has built up and made a bad connection on mine a couple times. You might have to wiggle it around a little.

Otherwise, I can't help you much with no more information than " They used to work fine until I messed with the wiring." What did you do to the wiring? What area were you working in?



I've replaced so many parts that my old Jeep has become my new Jeep.

I removed the front fenders and grill and disconnected the wiring and reinstalled evrything. Before I did this the lights worked well.... I will check it out further when i return home..
