I just replaced both bulbs, now I have one that looks normal, but the other is very dim. I pulled the connector and put the multimeter on the pins im not getting anything. Any ideas?

Sounds like a bad ground , run an overlay ground wire and see if that fixes it. Check terminal connections first if the problem started after changing bulbs.

Thanks, will do. I bought it 2 years ago, it was out when I got it so the ground sounds more likely.

let me know what you find...my 05 is doing the same thing. I haven't had time to tear into it yet...so if I can cheat and you tell me what the problem is, that'd be great! :wink2::grin2:

It was a bad socket, was getting like 4 volts max. Dropped in a new one from the harness to the bulb, and it was good to go. My meter had a bad connection, picked up a new one, put it on the pins and I was in fact getting 11-12 volts to the harness.

I had a very similar issue on my 04 Bruin, the socket was partially cooked inside and required me finessing things to get the contact points back to where they belong. :wink2:
