Daytime running lights stopped operating. Lights flickering when I hit a bump/pothole. Told that I need to replace old headlamp assembly due to being overpowered by newer headlamp assembly (driver side) to solve the electrical problem.

Relays are fine. DRL don't work. Brights do work. I guess its the resistor.
