in here sounds good.

hey guys, i just got in for the night, and on the ride home something was really bugging me. ya know how with the ford rangers, the lever on the side of the steering wheel (3 posistions)1 to keep the lights on low beams,2 locked high beams and then 3 pull forward it goes high beams as long as you can keep it held towards you??


well anyways, i noticed that with my high beams locked with the lever,(pushed out) they are not as bright as when i pull them toward me(pulled out) manualy. if i pull towards me it lights up the road a lot better, and when i lock high baems on it just seems a lot more dim. and the whole way home, i was testing with it, and it was just bothering me.

anyways i have sylvania ulta bright's in my truck..

anyone have any idea why this could be?



thanks
mike

I think it's like that in most cars today. I know it was like that in all 3 of my mustangs and my ranger too.
