HID to regular xenon (no hi beam now ?) help

So I got rid of the HID clear setup.
I switched to stock ambers & xenon bulb setup.

But, I got no hi beams.

Any ideas?
Thanks. Matt

If you haven't done this already, try removing and re-seating the entire headlight assembly. I've seen several posts where people state that their connectors have gone out of alignment over time.

Other possibilities:
1. Bulbs are burned or not attached correctly
2. Bad headlight switch (Search on "Headlight switch" for more information.

Is it possible to post a picture of your setup? A photo showing one out of the car may be helpful. It sounds like you may have something other than the OEM HID set up and being able to see it may prompt someone with a similar set up to weigh in.

Good luck.
