D/S headlight keep going in and out

I just installed some Anzo LED tails, which look really good, but the D/S headlight sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. How can I fix this?

Re: D/S headlight keep going in and out

you most likely (99%sure) have a loose wire connection... pop ur hook and check if ur headlight stocket is all the way in and its tight.

if not that, look at the headlight bulb (its a H4 bulb) and see if the flament (lil swerly wire that lightsup) is going bad.

Re: D/S headlight keep going in and out

it's not that it's going in and out while lights are on...but when I turn the lights on it may work, and sometimes may not. I checked the socket last night and appears to be well in there. Thinking it may be the bulb, but they're damn near new lights...weird?

Re: D/S headlight keep going in and out

hmm, well if it comes and goes, sounds like a wire problem. i dont think installing tails would affect it at all. i dont think its the switch cause then it would never work.

Re: D/S headlight keep going in and out

I know it's the weirdest shiz. This morning unplugged the LEDs and ran only stock lights, turned the car on, and then plugged LEDs back in. Been working fine since, which I drove more than usual today and checked the lights periodically throughout the day. I just hope all stays good.
