My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

The first thing that needs done here if this hasnt been done already is to inspect the wiring leading to the head light itself for any damage or corrosion needing repaired.I have seen faulty wiring cause this issue here before.If the wiring is found to be o.k. then the next step is to have the fault codes checked/read out to see what codes are set.Once this has been done any codes set need diagnosed to locate and repair this fault here.If the wiring is all o.k.and no codes set let me know so we can continue.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
