Q: Driver side D1R headlight not working even after replacing bulb.

asked by on August 22, 2017

I've changed my low beam bulb out a few times and it still doesn't work. What can be the issue? Ballast or wiring?

My car has 185430 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You will need to most likely need to replace the ballast for the light that is not working and should also check connections for any heat related damage and replace connector along with the ballast.
