2006 X5 HID low beam not working

Hi THere,
Hopefully there is someone here that can help me.
I recently installed non-OEM HID bulbs. I went for the 6000's rather than the 4300K.
Worked fine until a week ago the little green light next to the switch started to blink.
I kept driving and now the driver side bulb won't come on, but the little green light stopped blinking. So today I installed the original good bulb that I have saved. Still didn't come on. So I am thinking: Ballast etc. However here is the kicker: when I pull the left stalk on the steering wheel to make the light come on temporarily like they are supposed to, both lights come on every time.
I did go through a high pressure water car wash right before the green light started to come on.
Any ideas?
