Head lights are crappy do not put out enough light on 98 Silverado

575

Asked by Jan 06, 2010 at 10:49 PM about the 1998 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Cheyenne Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Have changed the head lights and installed clear Euro style head lights and then installed 9006 blue bulbs and they work some what ok but the 9005 bulbs do not give enough light nor get out there far enough to see . The high beams 9005 are crappy even with Euro style lights and new bulbs . old lights where yellow with age so replaced all . Tried Sylvania 60W bulbs and still not good. Has any one tried the PIAA 9005 120W bulbs / 60W-120W 12 volt , they are rated 60 watt but put out 120 W

imtalking about the headlight housing.

some where in that circuit their is too much resistance. it might be in the relay coil for the head light, or just some corrosion in the wires from the relay to the hheadlighs itself
