I installed a set of LED head lights (low beam and high) awhile back, I finally was able to take her out for a drive at night and they are VERY dim, I switched the connectors around when I did the install. They look great when your looking at them, and I’ve adjusted them correctly, they just don’t illuminate the road very well. And advice would be very appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Any idea what the current draw is supposed to be on your lamps.

It sounds like you're powering them with the factory switch.

The cheapos are very often, poorly focused.
Not an adjustment that can be made, short of replacing them with a quality light.
Lots of them were originally designed to be used on a rickshaw, w/a top speed of 3KPH.....
