Cool Recon Projector headlight help

Just installed a set of projectors on the front, love the way they look. One problem I am having is on the drivers side light, the bright beam dosn't always come on but all it takes is a light tap on the lens and it comes on. I shut off the lights and turn them back on and the same thing happens. I have rechecked all electrical connections to make sure everything is tight. Might it be the bulb or am I missing anything?? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I would check the bulb. pull the one from the pass side and put in drivers side and see if it still does the same thing. If it does it is something else like a ground maybe. if it works fine get a new bulb.

There's also a dielectric sealant/lube that you can put on the electrical connectors where the headlight bulbs plug in. That'll help seal out the water, keep the connection from corroding, and help maintain good electrical contact. I use it on all my bulbs and haven't ever had a problem. It's pretty cheap and can be picked up at any parts store.

Ditto on the dielectric grease/stuff...I also keep some slathered on my trailer plugs!
