I was driving to work the other day and the car in front of me kicked up an object that smashed my driver side headlight.
I orded and installed a new light assembly. The headlight doesn't work. The turn signal functions. I purchased a new bulb. Still doesn't work. I checked the fuse, it is good. I am at a loss as too what it could be? (assuming the new bulb is good). The only thing I can think of is there is a connector on the bottom of the assembly that isn't connected to anything. Did I miss a connection? Are there more parts to the headlight that don't come with the assembly?
It sounds to me like when the head light got damage it might have damaged the control unit. You can swap from side to side to check it. But be careful there high voltage unit.
Disconnect the cars battery and leave It for 10 min before disconnecting anything.
It normal mounted on the underside or back of the head light
All the damage Ive got on my cars over the years is due to junk dropped or flung up on the motorway, stone chips, bits of wood, bits of tyre as you say, bolt, fuel cap, chrome cover off a tow ball all caused damage, also seen but missed, a ladder in the middle lane, and a speedboat in the outside lane, no sign of whoever lost it, bet they dare not come back for it, and a suitcase full of underwear.
