Anyone have any headlight issue. My driverside headlight is dark blue and flickers on and off.......? Is it the bulb or the balice?

Could be either... Not sure how hard it is to replace bulbs, but you could swap sides to narrow it down

Swap bulbs, see if it follows. If not, ballast.

Is their any cheap way to fix the headlights or cheap place to get parts. Or should i just bite the bullet and do it at dealer price??????

I think the real question is, if you can't afford a $150 set of replacement D1S bulbs and the 40 minutes it takes to replace them, what other required maintenance are you neglecting?

It's "ballast."

If you've never checked into gmpartsdirect.com (in the event that it turns out to be a bigger problem than a bulb replacement and you needed a place to find parts), you may find some good deals there.

Let us know if we can check into anything for you,

I ordered 2 from eBay for less than $50 and went ahead and replaced both. No problems with them.

... that is if you don't mind waiting two weeks for parts.

Let us know if you find out what the problem is. I have this same issue. Seems like it happens more when there's more vibration. IE. braking hard or accelerating hard from 1st to 2nd gear. Haven't had a chance to diagnose the issue since I just bought the car today.
