My passenger low beam went out awhile back and finally found some replacements that were not he Philips over priced originals. Plugged in the bulb and nothing. Thought it might be a bad batch, so I swapped out the good bulb from the other side and nothing. Also I thought I'd check the new bulb out and it was fine on the functioning side. Ideas??
Do you have HIDs or Halogens? I'm assuming HID because halogen is rare in our cars that I've seen, and I think our factory HID bulbs are Philips. I would say either your ballast is bad, or somewhere along the way your wires to your headlights are fried. But my best bet would be bad ballast.
If you have FB, there is a group called Headlight Junkies, of which I am a member. Most people there know way more than I do, so if you join and pose this question, somebody will likely have a better explanation. They build HID setups from scratch in there and are very knowledgeable about ballasts, wiring, bulbs, etc.
