It sounds to me that as you move the suspect bulb to another socket the light intensity goes with it. Remove the bulbs and look closely to determine whether they are the same manufacturer, type, and wattage. sounds like there is a bad ground on the headlight assembly of the one that makes the light dim

I had the same problem, I even got a new bulb to try, switched fuses etc. In the end I cleaned the female connectors with a toothbush and rubbing alcohol. Then I made sure to wiggle it back and forth many times against the male terminals of the bulb to get a nice a connection. Viola! Works fine. It was only a bad connection. Should've thought of that before buying a $20 replacement bulb I didnt need.

1998 Dodge Grand Caravan bad headlight switch can I wire in a toggle switch and what color are the headlite wires or where can I find a diagram?

No, this is a solid state switch. They cost about $75 to $100. If neither high or low beams work it could be the switch. If one works and the other not look at the headlight relays in the fuse box.

I would guess the headlight dimmer switch on the floor board is bad or has a loose wire. Possibly the head light switch is bad. The headlight switch has a separate circuit breaker for just the head lights.
