Check the ground wire from the light socket. It should be black and trace back to the body or frame. Make sure it didn't get damaged and is making good contact to the car. You want shiny bare metal to metal. Hope this helps.

LIGHTING Headlights REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Unscrew the Torx retaining screws and remove the headlight bezel.
  2. Remove the headlight bulb retaining screws. These are the screws which hold the retaining ring for the bulb to the front of the car. Do not touch the two headlight aiming screws, at the top and the side of the retaining ring (these screws will have different heads), or the headlight aim will have to be re-adjusted.
  3. Pull the bulb and ring forward, then separate them. Unplug the electrical connector from the rear of the bulb.
