Hey guys,
Today my right headlight went out and my rear right tail light flickers. I checked the connections and tried a different ballast for the headlight but the same.

I'm not too sure which fuses to check. Any ideas? For those that don't know. I got CCFL halo projectors and hids up front and Bermuda tail lights. The halos on the front right headlight is working fine.

I'll give it another shot tomorrow morning but maybe by then could get a few more ideas ! Thanks

For the passenger side low beam I'll toss you a hint. Your starting point is somewhere on this image of your trusty manual...

For your tails, what part of the light is flickering? Parking light, turn signal, brake light (guessing not reverse) or does it happen during multiple applications? Need more details.

Are you running a harness where both HID's are controlled by one headlight plug?

If you are, the bulb itself may be bad. Actually, the bulb could be bad either way.

Carlton thanks. The upper part is flickering when lights are on. Brakes and turn signals fine.

I'll check the bulb if gone bad. Strange it happened together so thought may be related lol

Update: it wasnt the fuses.

Headlight: turned out to be the ballast. The earlier one tried out turned out to be toast
Taillight: I hooked up the left tail on the right connection and lit up perfectly. The righ taillight doesn't flicker anymore but the leds on the upper part are mostly fried.

These bermuda tails look good but suck in quality! I know what i`ll be doing this weekend lol! So much to do and still need to flush my radiator :s

The questionable quality and the sheer price of them are the two things that kept me away from a set of those. Just boggles my mind how they charge so much for something so cheaply made.

I've had my Eagle Eyes LED tails and while I have not been impressed with their rather crappy aftermarket projector headlights for vehicles, these tails have been great.

I have the eagle eye projectors but soon to be dropped for a retrofit. Could you post a pic of your led tails? I've had enough of the Bermuda failing me. I've replaced leds in them so many times and resistors. They're plain crap!

Man that really sucks, I thought that was you who cracked the tails open to replace some dead LEDs a while back... Kinda makes me paranoid that something similar is gonna happen to my Depo tails, but so far, so good...

Thanks man those look nice! They're growing more on me by the minute. Saw them on eBay but seems the plug is different. Will post a pic of my plug later on today. Mine is a Japanese TB

Looks good! I have to point out an area that not all the neat freaks are detailing properly, and they might be accumulating a butt-load of dust and dirt in this place:

Hopefully they last a lot longer than that, and you're not posting another thread like this in 13 months! :hopeless: :mad: :hissyfit:
