Dim low, bright high beam

Solved with a new bulb!!

Low beam crapped out, and got very dim. Went to get a bulb, and it kicked back on for a few seconds.

High beam is always fine.

Obviously (edit:not) a wiring issue, any ideas guys?

Bad bulb. The Headlight Reserve Lighting System is working. Defaults over to the good filament.

Good luck
Thought this, but got thrown off by the low beam coming back on fully before returning to dim.

Oh hey, I found an old quote..

Solved, new light.

Looks like the old one just barely broke, and it rewelded itself together before breaking again... Neat
