Does the right light up at all at any time right after you replaced the bulb?

Is this low beam and high beam that is not working on the right?

No red light and no high or low beam

On passenger side but all other lights work
Jeep Mechanic: Pete, Technician replied 10 months ago

When you say no red light is this no park light as well as no low and no high beam on the right side and is this red light also in the same head light assembly?

It's only the headlight on passenger side everything else works it can't be a coincident that I changed bulbs and now it won't work already did hard reset of tipm.

Have you checked for any fault codes in all computers using a scan tool plugged in that can read all computers to see if any codes are set related to the TIPM?

I will try that
Jeep Mechanic: Pete, Technician replied 10 months ago

O.k.,looking at the diagrams for this model here the first thing you want to do is make sure the head lamp connectors are all plugged in properly and nothing came loose from the head light itself.If this is o.k. the TIPM is the component that controls this light assembly and it can fail internally suddenly unfortunately and causes this issue here.I have seen the TIPM fail in the past several times before needing replaced to resolve this type of fault.

Having the codes checked with a fully compatible scan tool will help determine if the TIPM is the cause for sure needing replaced.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).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
