Headlight help!!!!

I installed a pair of after market headlights on my 2006 325i, xenon and eagle eye. For some reason the left light refuses to turn on, I made sure everything works on it by installing the left headlight on the right side, and it's turns on perfectly. Idk what is wrong with my car. The right headlight works perfectly fine, but the left one refuses to turn on. Please help me figure out what's wrong. Thank you guys so much in advance

You had halogens originally? You need to code your car for xenon. Add option code $522 to your VO and code CAS and N/FRM.

Go to coding section for more help.

Yes I had halogens originally, I have had xenons before, and they worked fine till water got into one and it stopped working, so I figured I would change both. Could it be an electrical problem? Fuses are fine and the left light works fine too when placed on the right side. I have no idea about coding. But I know my last pair of xenons worked fine.

If water killed the other light, probably an electrical issue. Did you try your old left light in the right side to see if it worked?

You can find someone in your area to code for you. You can also have them code the bulb error off so you don't have to mess with error cancelers.
