andre, check your light bulb to make sure that you have the right one installed. Check your wiring harness for a short. Check your connectors as well as relays for corrosion and make sure that you have proper ground connection.

1st Step:

Test with an Instrument (Voltmeter),

if the correct or sufficient Voltage is supplied at the Bulb.

Measure at the 2 terminals of the bulb.

If your vehicle has a 12 Volt Electrical System, (DC)

the display at the Test-Instrument should read approximately 12 Volts.

Most "Multi-Meters" are able to measure DC-Voltages.

(Keep well and be kind to each other)



Often the cause is a bad connection at the bulb-connection.

A bad connection is a Resistance for the electrical current.

This causes a Voltage-drop

and the bulb has insufficient voltage to light up fully.
