Driving light problem HELP

was just trying to wire up my IPF driving lights and i ran into a problem...i tried to tap into the high beams with that connector they gave me in the package and then i tried it out... they didnt work but now my left side headlight is dim, the right side is fine but the left side is very dim...i took it all apart and just connected my headlight back up and its still dim, even without my driving lights tapped into them...im wondering if maybe i severed too much wire with that connector and now there isnt enough wire to put out full wattage to the light???

Deffinitely need some help with this one... anything would be appreciated

make sure you have not loosened the ground terminal. if it is not getting a good ground it will be dim because it is feeding back thru the low beam to even light at all.....good luck.

I figured it out earlier tonight actually and that was exactly the problem. I had another ground wire from my Hella's connected to the bolt i grounded the IPF's to so i guess it wasnt getting a good ground...i connected it up to another ground and it worked perfect...good thing i found it too or else i was ready to re-wire the entire headlamp plug; what a major PITA that would have been if i did that and still didnt fix the problem lol.

So anyway they're almost all hooked up, just have to get some wire loom over the wire's and run my switch into the cab tomorrow morning.

Thanks for the response though, if i hadnt been screwing around with it tonight and figured it out myself you would have been right on top of it!
