driving the driver hi-beam and light work
fine but the passenger still stays dim I've
replaced fuses and bulbs and don't know

could be the wiring or connector, try cleaning the connector with electric parts cleaner (visually inspect it first) and check if its getting a good ground

Is that new bulbs?

Sounds good ill do that and yes I did replace the bulb and that is a new one but it's done nothing

I agree with FADI there is obviously corrosion or grounding issue with that part of the circuit. Then and only then your winking cat will be gone. :D

Hahahahah awesome hopefully I can fix that and get it working thank you!
