Customer Question
Our right hand head...

Our right hand head light bulb go's out intermittently on high and low beam right side only ? on our 2010 Cadillac Escalade ESV

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? Have you checked the bulbs?

Fuses are ok not sure about the bulb its strange that it usually takes a while before it go's out it usually come back on after awhile .

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Escalade ESV yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes only checked the fuses so far , is there a relay in the circuit that could heat up or is there a ballast built into bulb that could heat up and it to go out and come back on when cooled off ?

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No just that

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

You more than likely have ballast going out or a bad connection, heres a good video that shows you how to check all of that
