2005 Headlight Issue HID
So I haven't torn it apart as of yet, but wanted to see what you all think. My driver's side headlight turned purple last week. It would fire up nice and white, but then would turn purple. Then yesterday, i noticed that it was no longer purple, but it would flicker. And then today I notice that it would be flickering and then it would go off. Ballast or Bulb? I have already replaced the ballast on this side about a year ago. The case and lens of the headlight where cracked (prior incident apparently before I purchased the vehicle) and I sealed it up as best as I could. I see no evidence of condensation or anything in the light, so I don't think it is getting wet.

try the bulb on the different side.
Then you will find out whether the bulb is off or the ballast is off
