Um, your '92 SE did which same thing? Were the lights on all the time or off all the time? I want to test my light sensor and see if it needs replacing, although it seems kind of weird to me that its failure mode would be to get _more_ sensitive to light instead of less.

Shouldn't be too far away, but also check the wiring at the socket, where the bulb plugs in.

You could just attach the ground there to any good paint-free place on the frame or under the hood.

The light could be dimmer because the bulb is going bad - however it is possible that you have some wiring problems under there.

na, It'* a new headlight and bulb, so that can't be it I'm going to have to take it to some electrical shop sometime cause I don't like any light to be way brighter than another. I think it'* more likely a bad connection or ground wire somethin' along those lines.
