Headlight problem

Okay, So I've already used the search option on the site, and couldn't find what I was looking for. I have stock headlights, and for some reason one seems to be stuck on high beam. The high beam light on my cluster is not on, so I'm not sure exactly what the problem is.
Any help is appreciated.

Re: Headlight problem

Okay, I'll check it once I get the chance. If there is ghetto wiring what should I do with it? I'm very new to pretty much all of this stuff.

Re: Headlight problem

Follow your wires, there should be two harnesses going out from the headlights, one for your lows and one for your highs.

Re: Headlight problem

Okay, So there doesn't seem to be anything "strange" with the wiring from what I see. Anything else I could check? Or how do I differentiate between the high and low wiring harness?

Re: Headlight problem

Actually, you might want to swap the bulbs from left to right, sometimes when bulbs are about to burn out, they will burn brighter. I have come across this numerous times. Can't say it is your issue, but it might be.

its bulb has its own connector, its fairly obvious.
