what kind? in most cases of issues, usually caused by hyperwhite headlight bulbs, all that needs to be replaced is the connect and terminals.....its is pretty much cutting off the stock one and spling in the replacements.....

yeah, my wiring harnesses melted with my piaa's, autozone sells "high temp" wiring harnesses for like ten bucks, and i'm sure other auto patrs places do too.... they work pretty well, just cut and splice

I already replaced the harnesses and it didnt do anything my lights are so dim right now. I may have got wires screwed up but I dont think so. I cant figure it out.

Check your wiring against the factory wiring manual (if you don't have it this would be a good time to get it).
Are they dim on both sides or just one? There is an individual headlight fuse for each side, if the fuse for one side blows the light on that side will still be on dimly due to backfeeding through the bulb filament on the opposite side.

did you take a voltmeter and just go along all the wires looking for a voltage drop? Chances are you just have a loose connection somewhere, you just have to isolate it. But sometimes wires are bad and you won't really be able to tell w/o a voltmeter.
