Trying to figure out why only 1 headlight works until i hit the dimmer then they all (all 4) work... I checked connectors and they are fine, ground looks fine. I would assume that if it were a bulb issue they would not come on at all?
Harness is new, and I have the electric door actuators.

Thanks as always!

So how does it work, are the outer ones low beams and with the inner ones on that high or do they all have high beam? If so then 3 out of the 4 low beams burnt out.
They are only about 5 years old and I have literally used them a few dozen times lol.

As has already been said.. you have a low beam that is burnt out. When all 4 are on they are high beams. The outers have both a low and high beam filament in them (why they have three prongs!). Your one low beam filament is toast. The inners are high beams only, one filament and why they only have two prongs!
