Thumbs up

I am replacing one of my igniters inside the headlight, does anyone know if the headlights, specifically the xenon igniters have their own seperate fuses?

Thanks in advance guys

D2s bulbs? you can change the igniters by twisting them off...i dont think they will have a separate fuse, why does that matter anyways?

Because I put in some cheap d2s bulbs and fried one of my igniters, bought a replacement on ebay and it doesn't work, so I am assuming a fuse blew to protect the system specific to the drivers side headlight

Thanks

a cheap bulb wouldn't make your ballast go out. I highly doubt theres a separate fuse for each low beam, most likely the ballast or igniter went out. If its easily accessible try to switch the igniters from side to side or the ballast. That way you can eliminate whatever's shot.
