    So I have an issue with my headlights and my left tail light. The headlights are not working and the left tail light is a lot dimmer than my right one. What could cause this?

    Yes especially on the tail light being dim...

    Could be same on headlight but I believe there is a seperate ground for R&L, rarely both are failed at same time. I'd check for voltage at lamp sockets, if dead back up to dimmer switch... Still none, check headlight switch. If there is voltage at dimmer, problem is probably bulkhead connector.

    If high beam indicator works, problem is probably bulkhead connector.
