    If they are NOT HID, there is no ballast

      Check fuse as I believe each one of the 4 bulbs has a separate fuse. If I remember correctly

      from the pics, you do not have hid headlights. Yours are standard halogen bulbs

        I went thru all the fuses first. Damn, well it’s probably a wiring Issue...

          Why do you say it's not the bulb? How did you check it?

            I swapped the bulbs left to right and the drivers side still did not work, but the bulb from the drivers side worked in the passenger side.
