Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

There are a handful of things that could be going on and it will require some testing at the time the problem is happening to know for sure what is wrong. If just one headlamp is lost and it's intermittent then the problem is going to be wiring or connections, the ballast, or the bulb itself. A visual inspection of wiring and connections can be done. If no problems are found then power and ground to the ballast would need to be checked at the time the light isn't working to determine if the problem is with wiring or it's at the lamp itself. If power and ground are good then the problem is either the ballast or bulb. The ballast or bulb from the right side could be substituted one at a time to determine which needs to be replaced.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.
