Tried to change the drivers side headlight on the folks 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT. Tried two different bulbs but cannot get the low beam working. High is okay. I get the feeling I am missing something. Should not be this difficult. Thanks for any response.

Is there 12v and ground at the headlight plug with the low beams on?

Thanks for the reply. Yes, there seems to be. I'm gonna try to do this today.
Think that I will start with a new plug.

Well, I solved it. Bad news came down to the power distribution box under the hood being bad. Apparently this is a common issue with these. Was talking to a guy at the shop I took it into to get it fixed (not gonna mess with that myself), and hos had the parking lights pop on at random times-running or not and drain out the battery. So, gonna be a 6 or 700 buck fix.

Frustrated by your slow PC? Optimize your computer with simple ways.
The only time you should not run anti-malware software or a firewall is if you need to temporarily turn them off to fix a problem that they might interfere with. Even if your computer is never connected to the Internet it only takes one infected thumb drive or copied disk to crash your system.
