Did you get any kind of warning on the dash about your headlight not working?

Not enough details in the first post.

OP, double-check that the bulb is seated properly. Also double-check your wiring. Sounds like you missed a plug. I'd be surprised if there's not a dash warning.

It might be a plug as others have mentioned. I installed LED's for my halos and the dash light came on because the resistors were getting in the way of the adaptive motors, might wanna check that out too.

Mine throws the AHL malfunction code randomly. Im not sure if its the heat sink/inline capacitor thats moving and getting in the way or if some moisture got into the back of the headlight assembly and it shorts out occasionally. It seems like the code doesnt get thrown easily when its really cold out, but once the car (and presumably the back of the headlamps) warm up, i would get the code daily. Now the past 3 days i havnt got the code once. Once it gets a little warmer/dryer out, ill likely drop the front bumper off, remove the whole headlight assembly and properly secure the leads off to the side. Until then, i get a very intermittent AHL fault.
