The resistance of your wiring might be too high. Try to check all connections in your dashboard from the power supply to the light bulbs to see if there is any corrosion. How is the rest of your electrical system?

I had the same problem. I did the same stuff. I put on a bigger alternator and even my headlights got brighter. ALso updated wiring is important and grounds. jemoore24
