X3 Headlight out not angel eyes

2007 X3
The inside H7 bulb was blown. Replaced that bulb. Still nothing.
Then realized the xenon projector is not coming on.
The angel eyes are still working. Passenger side light works fine.

What would cause the low and high beam to both not function??

Try swapping the xenon ballast from left to right to see if that makes a difference.

I switched the bulbs. Just pulled the igniter and bulb out and switched. Only passenger side works. Both igniter/bulb combo works on passenger. Neither works on drive. So I am guessing dead ballast? Gonna research how to pull out the ballast and will try switching those to see if that is it.

Thanks for tip tim330i
