Diagnosis: The problem could be a bad headlight bulb, a loose bulb or corroded bulb socket, a bad ignitor, or a bad ground connection or wiring harness fault at the ignitor. High Intensity Discharge Xenon headlight bulbs do not have a filament, so if the bulb has failed it may be cracked or leaking. The bulb also requires a high voltage ignitor to turn it on and keep it glowing. On some applications, the bulb and ignitor are one unit and can only be replaced as an assembly. On others, the bulb and ignitor are separate components, and can be replaced separately. The bulbs are expensive to replace, and the ignitors are even more expensive to replace, so you want to make sure you have correctly diagnosed the faulty part BEFORE you replace anything. TIP: Swap the good bulb that is working on the other side to the headlamp that is not working. If the headlight now works, you know the bulb you removed was bad and needs to be replaced. If the headlight still does not work, try swapping the good ignitor module on the other side to the side that is not working. If the headlight now works, the problem was a bad ignitor, not the bulb. You need to replace only the ignitor and not the bulb. If the headlight still does not work, you have a wiring fault such as a loose ground connection, a bad wiring harness at the headlamp housing, or a corroded bulb socket.
