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

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!
