Default 2006 9-3 Aero HID Xenon Problem.... Not Ignitor... Not Ballast... Not Bulb

Hello everyone,

I am having some problems with the right side headlight on my 9-3 Aero. I know for sure the control unit was bad so I replaced that, I know that everything in my headlight assembly works fine because when I plug the right side unit into the left side it works fine. My question is can anyone think of any other possible causes for this? I have checked all fuses and grounds, and now I am stumped. The only thing I can think of is that since I replaced the control unit the system has to be reset before it will send power back to it....

Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

If you ruled out the components to the xenon headlight, then most likely an issue with the UEC. It controls the voltage to the headlight. I would check with wis for schematics to be 100% that thats the problem.

I was thinking the same thing.... and short of switching the input wires into the UEC I do not know how to test the unit.

Well you could always bring it into a garage if you can't resolve it yourself.

Tyler from the Exchange is over at Hubbard Motors in Winnetka and they seem very honest and reasonable.
