    Hey guys. Not a good day for me!

    Driving home this morning and up popped a headlight bulb warning. Drove home and had drivers headlight out.. Done the following..

    Swapped bulbs over (both bulbs work in passengers side)
    Swapped ballasts (both ballasts work in passenger side)
    Swapped the little rings that hold bulb in (both work on passenger side!)

    So other than wiring I believe that's all there is isn't it?

    Also, I'm not sure if it's since I have played around or doing it before hand (never noticed it) but drivers side indicator is now flashing fast! All bulbs work so not the usual. Hazards flash at normal speed. Just seems weird it's happened same time as the headlight bulb?

    One last thing.. I had heavily condensated drivers headlight (one with the problems) I took the back cover off and let dry out with the lights on, as soon as I put the cover back on,within 20 minutes it was covered again.. So until I had time to look into blocked breather (going to be today) I drove with the cover off..

    Could this have effected anything within the light itself?

    Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Sorry, I believe I mean igniters? On the back of the bulb, not ballasts!
