Both does not work
Jaguar Mechanic: Jaybird61, ASE Certified Master Technician replied 8 months ago

Have you checked fuse number 4 and 29 in the fuse box in engine compartment? You will need to check first to see if they are blown and if not then check to see if they have power when on low beam for fuse 4 and on high beam for fuse 29. Let me know? Was left light assemble and body damaged in left front?

If you are getting power from fuses to the headlight connector then you may have the ground connection under light that was not reconnected or is loose. Follow black wires in connection to ground connection under light assembly.
