help..headlight assembly issue

Hey guys,

I have a problem with my entire headlight assembly. I drove my car for an hour and a half to school, headlights work fine. I get there and turn off my car and turn it back on and the drive side assembly doesn't work. The headlight, parking light, and side marker were out on the driver's side but the passenger's side is fine. I checked the fuses and the headlight assembly fuse (20A) is not broken. However, my high beams work! I am completely confused
I have 6000K HID's (if this even matters)

I'd appreciate any help I can get. Thanks guys

Re: help..headlight assembly issue

so are you saying your HID bulb isn't working? If so, try swapping the bulbs around, if you still have the issue, then I'm sure your ballast has gone out, but if the issue happens to the other light, then the bulb has gone bad

Re: help..headlight assembly issue

Well my HID bulb is not working, but my parking light and side marker light (running lights) are not working on the driver's side either. That is what confused me because I thought that if the bulb went, the other lights still would work. I just couldn't understand why all the lights went.

Re: help..headlight assembly issue

There should be a bunch of ground wires connected to the inside of the fender behind the washer reservoir neck. Check and make sure they are all connected.
