No Hi Beam on Passenger side

1966 chevelle, Replaced all four headlights 2 years ago, Never drove at night much, First dimmer switch didn't work, replaced it, (got a bad one) replaced it again, it worked, but later on I noticed my head lights on bright would blink on and off. Since then when I go to bright, driver side lights up both, passenger side none, switch bad to dim, both sides work on dim.
I cleaned the passenger side ground, bright bulb doesn't look blown.
I turned on lights, on bright and probed all the terminals with test light that didn't work, no voltage.
I suspect the dimmer switch, how do I test it?
Or is there another problem?

Re: No Hi Beam on Passenger side

When I replaced all bulbs, I bought after market halogen
Could they be pulling to much power, Strange driver side works on bright

Re: No Hi Beam on Passenger side

If there is no power at the sockets terminals, there is your problem. No voltage, no lights. You need to figure out why no power is getting to the passenger side. Green wires get power on High beam, tan wires get power on Low beam. Tan and green never get power at the same time.

Try replacing your headlight switch. (not the dimmer switch) Had that happen to me one night...lights blinking. Changed switch and solved problem.
