Dim Lights

We have three light switches that control about 20 halogen 12v lights in our living room/kitchen area. The front set (8) controlled by one switch are all very dim when I turn them on. We don't use them that much. So, not sure how long they have been that way.

Any ideas of what may cause this?

From MY experience dim or non-working lights were caused by a problem with the ground. Also could be a bad switch. If it were me, I would pull the switch and connect the wires directly to test. If that solves the problem, then it is the switch. If not, on to the ground. CAREFUL you will be working with LIVE wires.

But I'm new here and there are many people who know more than I do.
