Tired of the headlight

I am frustrated with my driver side xenon.

My driver side xenon light doesn't work and it hasn't been working for the past 3-4 months.
One day i took my car to the car wash and it stopped working. I have changed the xenon bulb, i even got a brand new headlight yet the xenon doesn't work.

I thought it would be the LCM so i took out the LCM from my car to check the part number and when i plugged it back in.. the light was working for about 5min and then it turned off again.
I got the LCM from ebay and i plugged it in, it was the same issue. It was working for about 5min and then it turned off.
I don't know whats left to do.

Also on the LCM when i put it to auto, the green light keeps flashing and its probably because my passenger driver side headlight isn't auto leveling when i drive.

Anyone has any suggestions on what to do? The main issue is that there is no current coming from the positive wire to the xenon.

Ballast?
Also be careful, that is really high voltage feeding those bulbs.

I mean which parts (there are many, as per the link) were replaced? if you actually bought a complete, new assembly, you also needed to have it coded. I don't imagine it would function without coding.

it was the whole assembly that was replaced by camco acura through my insurance. The part is from Bmw. Would they have coded it for me?
