Headlights After Washing

So I've been having some problems going on with my headlights. I washed my car a couple weeks ago and the passenger side headlight went out. I drove around with it out for a little bit and then washed my car again last night. After washing it I drove to where I needed to go and everything seemed fine. After leaving where I was to go home I turn on my headlights to realize both of them don't work and I was pretty much left to drive home with nothing. Any idea of why this would be happening?

Have you changed any of your light bulbs in your headlights? Most likely you, or the previous owner did not put the covers back on correctly and water got into both your lights.

+1. That's the first place I would look, especially if you went with LED angel eyes. The ballasts are quite big.

Alright cool thanks a lot and if that is to be the case then what do you guys suggest on doing just replacing the entire headlight assembly?
