Reset the circuits. Disconnect the power and earth cables. Should do that anyway before accessing the housings.

Hi Cookie, and welcome to the forum, Aleks is correct, hold the wires together for about 10-15 minutes that will reset the TIPM and should clear any errors the car is possibly having. If I remember right, I think I read that there are fuses for the left AND right headlamps in the fuse box under the hood. Double check the fuses (i.e. try swap fuse positions and try again) and hopefully it's as easy as that!! I've also seen posts that this has worked and some that it didn't. You could also check the multifunction switch stalk on the left hand side, although a lot of the functions run through the main computer.

If it does not reset, was your old bulb blown? Some have found a break in the wiring. Their fix was to take a signal wire from the other side to a power relay as a by-pass.

thanks I’ve also noticed that when I put my lights on they flicker slightly & seem dim even though they are the brightest that they can go

Flicker could be poor earth. Are you using standard replacement OEM bulbs?
