    Common adaptive headlight error + headlight out + housing moisture. Cause? Fix?

    I just picked up a i m-sport Prod. I'm been reading a ton of threads here but they seem to deal mostly with aftermarket lights and bad seals. I believe I have stock lights see below , but I'm getting the dreaded Adaptive Headlight warning and the actual headlight is out: Here's the classic moisture in headlight shot: What I can't tell is if they are aftermarket units?

    I didn't think they would be since my VIN Decodes with: I don't know if you guys are familiar enough just to tell by the harness. These two pieces were just laying loose in the cover, which seemed sloppy for OEM and the pink hues are odd? Definitely aftermarket] There's no cracks or splits in the housing, the back cover was firmly in place. It would be nice to try to figure out how the moisture got in there before I start swapping in new parts — would hate to fix it and just have it happen all over again.

    Where should I start? Summary of Solution from later in the thread for future searches I dried out the headlight by removing the rear cover of the headlight and placing a box fan on the engine, pointed at the headlight to move air into the housing. From the front, I positioned a shop light about 18" away to cast some heat into the housing.

    I left this setup for a few hours and it eventually dried up all the moisture inside the headlight. I removed the headlight from the car and discovered that the Control Module that controls the Adaptive Headlights and the Ballast that powers the Xenon Headlight light , both located on the bottom of the headlight, were full of water and corroded.

    I replaced the Control Module part and the Ballast part and both the errors are now gone, the Adaptive Headlight and the Headlight light now work properly.

If the control unit was fried, would it still at least light the bulb or does that also effect power to the bulb?

I had the same problem, most likely your ballast control unit is dead. I would remove the passenger light assembly to make sure it's completely dry. Then remove the ballast from the bottom and check for moisture and corrosion.

    So if one side is dead, it will cause both sides to not move? If I pull a code from the car, would it tell me specifically what side is causing the issue? This is the control unit, yes? Hope you get this sorted out. Cover probably not installed correctly. I replaced my covers this year , should be done every 6 years or so since the gasket loses elasticity and can leak.

    Don't know why so many have difficutly getting them back on correclty, really not that hard. Good luck getting this sorted out. I would strongly recommend you buy some OEM angel eye bulbs and get rid of those aftermarket ones. One part of the question still remains AHL aside, why is the View post on imgur. Even when I swapped the bulb from the drivers side where it lights up fine , it didn't light up on the passenger side. Maybe it's not AHL aside?

Looks like whoever did the wiring job, never bothered to put back the headlight covers behind the headlights and that allowed moister into the headlights. A footwell module is a few hundred - plus it will need to be coded to your car.
