Default headlight issue resolution

This should be the same 01-05

Had kind of a weird issue with my 01 after swapping from hid back to regular bulbs when one of my hid bulbs burnt out.

The issue :
Driver side headlight was dim and the high beam was on aswell but aswell very dim. The oassanger side headlight was on no differance in light output but the high beam was on very dimly.

Started with cleaning the ground that had no change,
Turns out it was a fuse so it is an easy fix

Passanger side:

The fuse spot:
It was a 15a fuse in the DRL/EXT LT Sit in the under hood fuse box,
