dim headlights

Wondering if anyone has experienced a similar problem with '08+ liberty...my headlights are very dim. The fog lamps are brighter. High and low beams have no more intensity than the day time running lights. Fuses are okay. This may have started after I plugged in a trailer with shorted wiring (blew trailer fuse on another truck). Still under warranty, but mechanics at the local dealer are on strike. Lovely! I'm thinking some problem with the DTL module... anyone have a similar issue?

If you hooked up a trailer with a short,this may void the warranty for your DRL problem because it was caused by a defect from a outside source.The only thing I can think of is the FCM(front control module)got damaged from the short.Double check your fuses.The FCM is located under the hood in the Power control Box.

Well, it looks like both bulbs were burnt. The bulbs looked overheated and mostly black, but the elements were still working...only not alot of light getting throught. Strange. With new bulbs, I can see!!

I have this issue too. I think the headlamps are too dim. Haven't hitched anything up to it. Would just like to have brighter lights.

Any suggestions on HID bulbs?

Thanks

I went with the stock wattage but 7400kv bulbs. Should have done more research. While the whiter bulbs help, I would have gone to a 65/75 bulb had I known in advance.
