Driver Side Headlight Out - Not As Easy As You Think

Hi all,

I have a 2004 MDX. My Driver side headlight just went over recently. I've always used HID kits since 2005. I've tried changing a new hid bulb and new ballast as well as the regular H11 halogen bulbs but theres no power to it. I've checked the fuses in the engine bay and its all fine. I've replaced the existing fuse with a new fuse and still nothing lights up in the driver side headlight. My driver side fog light and all passenger side is fine. Can anyone point a direction? running out of ideas.

Thanks

You need to do a continuity check on the wiring to determine if there is an open circuit somwhere.

Check with a halogen bulb to see if you fried the wiring.

Did that already. If the wiring is fried. Do you know if the whole wiring needs to be replaced?
