So my passenger puddle light is brighter than my driver side. I switch bulb and still the same. Is there a fuse or short or something in the car. Don't know what to do. Help please!!

What are the puddle lights even for? It only lights up when you walk next to your car, am I right?

Why shouldn't he be? There's tons of references for puddle lights, I thought OP meant the lights that are underneath the door where half is white half is red. Then there's also people who install puddle lights underneath their side skirts

One side might be malfunctioned. Might want to email VLEDs for a return of the broken bulb. Fuses don't make lights go dimmer, it's a constant voltage. Did the less brighter bulb follow when you swapped it?

They aren't for anything, they are pretty much practically useless... they are just cool. I suppose you could say they are supposed to illuminate puddles so you can avoid stepping in them but that is so far fetched. They might light up the ground slightly if you were parked in the middle of an abandoned mine at midnight.
