Hi there, I am Cam.

On your car, at the headlights, do the headlights both get power all the time? This system works by sending power to the lights direct then the ground is controlled.

Also the signals and park lights work properly?

Signals and park lights work not sure about both getting power all the time bright lights work on both sides
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Daytime driving lights also both work

OK find the dark blue wire and follow it behind the left headlight, it will splice with both headlights. See if there is a problem in that wire. Often times that wire is shorted or broken.

Ok - I suppose I should disconnect the battery first?
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Just to be safe? I'm always leery of electrical shocks

Not in this case, there is no risk on that line.
