    I have one dim headlight on my 2001 accent. I replaced both bulbs and
    checked and cleaned the connector. Has anyone else had this problem??

    Dim headlight is caused by a bad ground.

    Also check to see whether the bulb is installed correctly. Incorrect
    installation will move the bulb out of the focus of the reflector and
    cause a dim lamp.

  5. Headlight bulbs are often grounded to the body near the headlight.
    Follow the wiring until you see the ground lead split off. Unscrew it,
    clean up the connector and screw, then reinstall it.
