HI. So today my lovely truck decided to give me probably the biggest electrical problem that can exist in a car. I will try to describe this as best as I can but I really dont know where to start.
With the car completly off and lights on:
Left Head Light and hazards do not work.
With the ignition in the on position (car not running)
Cluster lights work but really dim as soon as the headlights are turned on.
Hazards work but really dim the cluster.
Car on (this is where the major problems start)
Left headlight does not work
Right turn signal works fine
Left turnsignal causes hazards to come on...... eally dim the cluster.
this one is crazy..... turning on the heat turns on both headlights a little. Bigger the speed the brighter they get.
Alternator, battery and fuses all checked out fine. Someone please help!!!

Turns out it was that ground. What happened is that I wired my "off road" lights and used that spot as a ground. When I took them off along with the wiring I was being lazy and just ripped the ground wire (from the lights) out which left a little gap between the head of the screw and the fender..... allowing the accessory ground wire to flop around. Unscrewing the ground bolt I was able to reproduce the problem......... So thank you all. I still <3 my truck.
