Hello, the bulbs are control module controlled, so if you replace a burnt bulb what you need to do is turn the headlights to the "O" off position and close the doors and lock and unlock the car, then start it and turn the lights back on and see if it functions, it should if the contact plate and wiring and socket are ok, so make sure you check all the connections as the metal plate melts and distorts also the tabs on the bulb socket burn as well. if all is ok then you may have a issue with the rear sam control unit that controls the bulbs. let me know if you need more assistance. i will do my best to assist.
