I'm sorry to create yet another headlight thread - but I'm having some issues with the passenger headlight in my R - A few months ago, the low beam on the passenger side went out and the message popped up in the dashboard. The car still had the original bulbs so I just ordered a set of replacements and put them in. Everything ran great for several days and the error started popping up again. So, I read the forms and picked up a new ballast on Ebay, swapped that in, and again, everything ran great for a few days until the error popped up again. My next step was to swap the ballasts between the drivers and passengers side. I still get the error on the passenger side - so at this point, I'm pretty confident it isn't the ballast. I've even swapped the bulb holders from drivers to passengers and it still fails on the passenger side.

When the light goes off - even if I turn the headlights off, and back on, the light is not on. However, if I kill the car, restart - the lights will come on. Sometimes they'll fail within 2-3 minutes, sometimes they will last for days.

I'm posting here because I'm running out of ideas. The harness looks good, the connectors look good... Ugh..

Thanks.

I'm not sure but are the ignitors all in the ballast box on our cars? Have you taken to an indi specialist to have it 'VIDA'd? Dang computers....
