my fog lights and low beams work just not the Xenon. at night when i turn on the headlights my driver side xenon turns on but the passenger side has only low beam and fog light on so it looks like my car is winking. Any suggestions on where i can find a bulb for cheap? thanks for the reply

I recommend swapping the L/R bulbs ( should only take 10 minutes ) to be sure that the bulb is the problem. I found by swapping components that I needed a new Litronic controller/transformer ( gray aluminum box on the rear of the lamp unit ). Bad news for me was that it turned out to be a $700 part :( . I bought an entire cracked headlight on ebay and saved the rest as spare parts. my01 tip.

The bulb swap is a good suggestion to try.

See, I'm confused. The low beam is xenon. The high beam is a standard halogen H7 bulb. But you say the xenon bulb is not working.

Perhaps it is your halogen high beam that is not working?

There is a list of replacement bulbs in the owners manual.
