Headlamp module??

Recommended Posts

Currently the proud owner of a '05 350Z.......with only one working headlight!

 

No being mechanically minded at all, I asked a local garage to find out why simply replacing the bulb didn't help. It seems there is a problem with the 'headlamp control module (drivers side) that screws into the bottom of the headlamp and controls the xenons' (screws in to bottom of headlamp).

 

Anybody able to shed some more light / advise?

 

I previously had an issue where I had damaged the plastic cover in the wheel arch area, and wonder if there could've been some water damage - there has been quite a lot of condensation in the headlamp since.

 

All help greatly appreciated!!

It's the Ballast, that's what transfers power to the Xenons. Check that it's not the fuse for the head lights first, but I bet it's the Ballast (which is what they were talking about). If water has got into it due to a damaged inner arch, it'll be kaput.

Thanks for the reply. They definitely checked the fuses, and even replaced to see if that was the issue - no luck unfortunately.

 

So the question now is probably - what next? Can I buy the ballast separately, or do I need a whole new headlamp unit?

 

Either way, any recommended places to get them from?

 

Thanks again

Yes you can get the ballast separately, try Zmanalex or R35LEE. They may be able to help.

Thanks ZEUS. :thumbs:

 

Ballasts are in stock and good to go same/next day.

 

Just drop me a PM if I can help further.

Just to update, ballast ordered from ZMANAEX, received and fitted, and problem now resolved. Another 350Z back on the road!

 

Thanks Alex!
