    Depends on the bulb standard Syvania headlight bulbs for that truck takes about 3.9-4.3 Amps each so 7.8-8.6. The other bulbs take about 0.6 amps each bulb on low like tail lights and parking lights and about 2 amps each bulb when bright like blinker and brake lights

    Because Im having a problem with
    the driver side head light,low beam.
    When I turn my head light low beam on
    It doesn't light up and lamp out lights up on
    on dash. I used test light on passenger
    headlight and test light lights up and blinks.
    When I place test light on drivers side head light
    Wires the test light lights up. No blinking.
    So I splice marker light wire and connected
    Driver's side headlight. Now both headlamps
    are working. How long can I leave the
    headlight connected to marker lights wire
    Circuit without damaging anything else
    on vehicle and can this bypass wiring
    cause a fire to vehicle.
