    headlight problem

    I have a 2002 wrx. My passenger side light is not working. I must have crossed wires while replacing the wire harness. Now even with my new light bulb and wire harness the light is very dim. Also my high beam indicator is not working when I turn on the high beams. Did I blow a fuse somewhere? I tried switching the wires around and nothing.

    Sounds like your not making a good ground....check the black? wire I believe (should bolt into the metal frame somewhere). That will cause you to go dim and lose high beams...

    Make sure the ground connection is tight first and check the fuses. I had the same problem and ended up w/ both a loose connection and a blown fuse.
