When I noticed my right front headlight was not working, I got to the back of my headlight assembly removed plug going into assembly and reinstalled it. Now the headlight works, but now when I put my right turn signal the headlight flashing with the turn signal, when I put the high beams on the high beam doesn’t work on right side and low beam doesn’t work either. All the bulbs are correct. Also, when the turn signal is on the front turn signal gets very dim when the headlight is flashing. Also, I’m wondering if my headlight assembly is causing this problem, because when I looked first when I had a problem the headlight was not working, or it was very dim and parking lamp was very dim. When I removed the plug from assembly everything seemed to be fine, but then when I put the right turn signal the headlight was also flashing with the turn signal on right side.

This sounds like a bad ground, or you have fuse out. Here is the ground wire location but also you should check the bulb socket for corrosion because a bad connection can cause the problem as well. Please use this guide to check to see if the fuse is good and that you have power.

Here are the headlamp wiring diagrams so you can see which fuses to check and how the headlamps work. If all the fuses are good you could also have a BCM that is going out, you can get a preprogrammed unit by searching Google or Ebay. Here are the fuse locations and how to change the BCM out. Check out the images (below). Please let us know what you find. We are interested to see what it is.
