offside and nearside running lights, LED's, are a different brightness.
Best idea so far is a bad earth, but I've no idea how to check that, or to diagnose any other cause.
Any ideas from you bright sparks?

Are they after market led lights ? If so anything to do with cable thickness, like one light being further from the battery, but then I am no mechanic. Haha

Can you easily swop them over and see if the same thing happens.

not long enough
our cars dim the DRL's if we are indicating,

also I think they get brighter when going round corners on the direction you are turning to

could it be that your steering wheel isn't straight ?

Ah that’s a common sign you’re into dogging. Stay away from rural car parks :rolleyes:

DRLs have to dim or extinguish when sidelights are turned on. It looks to me like the dim one has reverted to "sidelights on" mode. I doubt that an earth or feed fault would cause the problem - they don't draw enough current to care about such things.

Hmmmm, am none the wiser. I reckon Clive's answer was probably right though.......
Anyway, yes it passed MOt like that, and as I can't see it from where I'm sat, not gonna waste time and effort and money investigating further:p
Thanks anyway chaps(y)
