headlights

I wouldn't think it would be your ground. Your high beams would be dim as well. Possibly the power feed for the dims. Seperate feed for dims and highs.

Most likely the lights are turned on by making the ground through a relay. This is fairly common.

If possible swap the low beam feeds with the high beams..... if you get the same issue...... as suggested check your relay feed
