Without seeing the light's operation - I'd suspect a faulty ballast. Those are pretty expensive though - so I wouldn't just go replacing it. If you're handy with electrical, you could probably diagnose it 100% yourself - otherwise I'd recommend having your local trusty auto repair facility diagnose and repair it for you.

Good Luck!

Sounds like it is an HID light system on there, you can get after market bulbs MUCH cheaper then from the dealer. and with the bulb flickering first, then dying, it sounds like a bulb issue, not the ballast.
let me know where you live, i might be able to point you in the right direction.

A transient high tension (25,000 V ) occurs at the bulb sockets of the high intensity discharge (HID) lamps when the combination light switch is turned ON, it may cause serious electrical shock or electrocution if you do not observe the cautions below.

CAUTION:
  • Never turn on the combination light switch before fitting the HID bulbs to their bulb sockets and completing the reassembly of the headlight assembly.
  • Do not service the headlights assembly in wet conditions, such as rain or snow, near a sprinkler system, or when your hands are wet to prevent electrocution.
  • Do not touch the surface of the HID bulbs with your bare hands and do not stain it with any oils and fats.
  • Do not disassemble the inverter unit and the ignitor unit.
  • Do not turn on the HID bulb by using a power source other than the battery mounted on your vehicle.
  1. Make sure you have the anti-theft codes for the radio and the navigation system, then write down the XM radio channel preset. Make sure the ignition switch is OFF.
  2. Turn the combination light switch OFF.
  3. Disconnect the battery negative cable, then disconnect the positive cable.
  4. Remove the headlight assembly.
