Help with TYC's please . . . I have no idea whats going on

Hey guys. I wonder if theres anybody out there that can help me solve my problem with my TYC projectors.

They are stock.

I blew my H1 lowbeams a while back. I've never had a chance to change it until last night. I've changed the bulbs a number of times with no problems. However, when I tried to change it this time, that light was real dim and it triggered my daytime running lights to reamain on, both sides on the lowbeam setting. So at night when I have my lowbeams on, both lowbeam and daytime lights are on with the addition of a really really dim lowbeam on that one side.

Anybody have any idea whats up? I checked everything I can think of and all seems ok.

Expecting bad weather tonight so I'd like to get it up and running

check the ground wire, and make sure the bulb is getting a good ground through the socket. no corrosion or anything.

try a new bulb? swap bulbs and see if the problem swaps.
