Headlights - switch problem?

This started happening a few days ago - when I switch the headlights on, my passenger side light is very dim, driver side normal brightness - but my high beam indicator lamp lights up faintly even though the high beams are not on. When I switch the high beams on and off then the light goes to full brightness and the blue instrument light goes completely off. Is it the bulb, wiring or switch? FYI - I changed out the headlights a few weeks ago to Hella Vision Plus.

I would double check the connections and look for a possible short...

OK- Point taken to run the search

Did a search - read through the threads came up with the following:

1. Could be the switch
2. Check for shorts in the wiring
3. Check the fuses - ruled this out since the lights all work after I switch the high beams on and off
4. Check all connections

So - unless I missed a post of the same problem, will start with the connections, and continue from there.

Thanks,
Mark
