Hi all, this is my first time posting!!

I have a strange problem with my low beams. Both headlights stopped working within a few days of eachother. I switched both bulbs, one worked for a few days (bulbs are still good). disconnected all the wire connectors and checked all the fuses...thought maybe it is the ballast!!! well here is where it gets strange...

If I loosen and reconnect the bulb on the drivers side the passengers side light will work for one cycle of the switch on the steering column...(new switch installed as well)

Has anyone seen this before? I have not replaced the ballast yet

It's not totally unheard of. Two methods of repair here.....

The first would be to replace both igniters and ballasts. Expensive proposition, but would fix it once and for all.

The second is to swap parts side to side, as you started to do with the bulbs. Do the igniters next, since you can get to those topside. See if the issue goes to the other side of the vehicle. If so, you can replace that one part and be good :)
