Headlights

hello everyone I am new here...I have an 05 Acura TL...my drivers side hid works but nothing else on drivers or passenger. Replaced the bulbs closest to the grill and that did nothing either... I see yall are using https://www.hidextra.com/9005-hid-kit-35w-55w/
but idk what I am looking for exactly on there and was wondering if I could get some assistance.

I havent checked my ballast or the igniters

honestky just need them fixed as I got three tickets last night and now this will be my second headlight ticket.

Also, I ran an si last night and won (silly si)

Well for starters, the headlight is d2S and not 9005 so you replaced the wrong bulb

Why are you trying to order anything when you don't even know what is wrong yet? Start swapping parts to identify what is actually failed, then look for replacement parts.

Your not understanding....if you order a kit and your ballasts or igniters are not in working condition, the new kit will not work.....
if you continue to get tickets for the headlight, stop driving the car until you get the issue resolved

Hi,

I replaced my HIDs this winter. I got two of the following and they have worked well. First, I would swap the working bulb to the other side to make sure a new bulb is what you need.

Are you saying that only the driver's headlight and nothing else up front works? As in the parking lights and fog lights also don't work?
