Brandon,  This sounds like a grounding issue not a bad alternator.  Try
using a separate jumper wire to ground each relay individually and look
for dirty contacts at the relays.  My Coupe GT did this low beams dim,
nothing when switched to highs.  I had a bad ground wire.

 IIRC, was normal with the urq alternator.  I thought the bigger
 from the 200 might/should get rid of this, no?  Is this a sign the
tor is going south?

Also, the headlamps (I have the Euro sloped Cibies w/ uprated bulbs,
) work fine at normal.  When I click on the brights, highs and lows both
 out.  What would cause this?
