I have Audi Allroad 2002 and I have problems with the Xenon…

Customer Question
Hello.. I have Audi Allroad...
Hello.. I have Audi Allroad 2002 and I have problems with the Xenon headlights::
First the turning lights stopped blinking and left Xenon headlight did not ignite, just a little flash on startup. High beam on both front lights are ok.
Bought new hazard switch OEM (controls the blinking) and replaced both Xenon headligths bulbs (lower beam)
Sometimes both headlights are ON and ok – more often just the right headlight, and sometimes both are dead.. High beam on both sides functioning perfectly
It seems like a connection or wiring around the hazard switch is foulty – sometimes it´s enough to switch the car OFF – hold IN the hazard switch and switch the car ON again - and BOTH headligts turn ON – but does not work all the time…
Have you guy´s any experience with a problem like this ??
