    Xenon Left Beam Failure - Light works but doesn't shut off

    Hello everyone...
    I have an 04 Arc convertible with Xenon 'Left Beam Failure' on the the SID however the bulb is working but doesn't shut off after the car is turned off. I have to disconnect the battery so it doesn't drain the battery. I swapped all of the components from the right side and the same thing happens so leads me to believe that the problem does not lie in the headlight housing, ballast nor the igniter, Its kindda like a stuck relay. Is this something a Tech2 can remedy?? Any ideas?? Please help. Thank you

    Tech2 needed,however if you can get the fault code you may be able troubleshoot the error first using the WIS and wiring diagram.

    Just picked up an UEC from an 05 Aero vert at the scrap yard. In my case this was a Plug and Play procedure, all works normal now, No Tech 2 needed. Aerojon >>Thank you for pointing me in the right direction.
