Try adding an hid relay + 4700uF capacitor to your hid installation to solve DRL flickering issues with your low beam.

I have 2015 the driver side headlight doesn't work changed the bulb and check the fuse no lights at all


I gather that the passenger side is still working? If so, I would check the connections to the Drivers side and also the earth connection to the body. Check the globe you fitted is ok by fitting it into the known working passenger side. If it doesn't light, you have found your problem, a new dud globe (Happens sometimes). Use a clean cloth whilst handling the globe, especially with halogen globes. They will blow pretty quickly if there is any moisture or residue on them from your hands.

I just put in a set of headlights on my 05 350z. They are they Spyder smoke and are plug and play. Hooked up HID and they worked fine, for a few minutes. Passenger side still works fine on low beam but...


For starters, "..worked fine, for a few minutes." sounds like a current overload issue. Is the headlight wattage greater than the wattage of the bulb(s) you are replacing? If so, you're asking for trouble; the least being burnt wires and circuits. Worst case would be a fire.
Assuming you're within wattage specs and assuming you've checked fuses, it's a matter of using a test light working backwards from the headlight ( if you have power to the headlight but light does not work, you either have a bad bulb or it is not getting "grounded").

HEADLIGHTS DO NOT WORK, BUT HIGH BEAMS DO AND SO DO TURN SIGNALS AND SIDE MARKERS


The HID requires a ballast, did you do any rewiring? Did you check the fuses? Unplug the relay either hi or low, use jumper wire between terminals 30 and 87, the lamps should work, I'm talking about your regular lamps. If they work with the jumper, then check control side of relay.

Head Lights Don't Work But Hi Beams, Turn Signals, And Side Markers Do


Have you check all the fuses with a volt meter and also there should be fuses under the bonnet. Is there a volt supply on the wires that you replaced just to make shaw that the wires haven't melted down the wiring loom i know on most newer cars each light has its own fuse ,is all the rear lights working ok .if you let me know what make of car you have i will see if i can find any thing out for you,
the other problem could be your light switch inside the car thats burnt out i had this problem with my ford sierra cosworth one minute it was ok then went to go home and i didnt have any lights.
hope this helps.puggy

The circuit load is much higher with the HID lights, you need to rewire the headlights to a large gauge wire.

I have a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The driver side brake light does not work when the headlights are on. It does work when the headlights are off. The passenger side works fine during both.


Sounds like a bad earth connection in the light fitting.
First, Check how well the metal base of the globe fits into the socket. If it is a bit loose remove the globe , squeeze the sides of the metal socket with some pliers so that the globe fits snugly in the socket. If it is still not working correctly check where the earth wire from the Light Assembly is attached to the body. Remove. clean and re-attach securely if necesary.
