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?

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.

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.
