(2)
Check the fuse and relay.
(3)
Check the polarity of ballast. (If the polarity are changed, low beam doesn't lighten)
(4)
Check the bulb connector securely.
(5)
Visually bulb checking (no filament): damaged glass, damaged for upper parts and lower parts of glass tube.
(6)
After (1)~(5), replace the ballast and the ignitor. (ballast assembly).

2.

Removal

Head lamps become very hot during use; do not touch them or any attaching hardware immediately after they have been turned off.
The headlamp bulb should not be removed from the headlamp assembly until just before a new bulb is installed.
Removing bulb for an extended period of time may affect headlamp bulb performance.
Contaminants may enter the headlamp assembly where they can settle on the lens and reflector.
Never turn on the head lamps with the bulb removed from the headlamp assembly.
1.
Disconnect the negative (-) battery terminal.
2.
Remove the front bumper cover.
3.
Loosen the mounting bolts (3EA) of head lamp. Remove the head lamp assembly (B) after disconnecting the lamp connectors (A).

Х
HID lamp shall not be used on other cars.(Fire may occur.)
Х
Fire may occur when HID lamp initially lights due to the fact that arc-discharge generates high voltage (max. 20,000V) and high current (12-13A), and are different from the halogen lamp specification.
Х
Install the dust cover after confirming the locking state between bulb and bulb holder.
Х
When testing the HID head lamp, turn the power on or off with switch between power supply and lamp because of high voltage.
Х

Adjustment

Head Lamp Aiming Instructions
The head lamps should be aimed with the proper beam-setting equipment, and in accordance with the equipment manufacturer's instructions.
If there are any regulations pertinent to the aiming of head lamps in the area where the vehicle is to be used, adjust so as to meet those requirements.
Alternately turn the adjusting gear to adjust the head lamp aiming. If beam-setting equipment is not available, proceed as follows :
1.
Inflate the tires to the specified pressure and remove any loads from the vehicle except the driver, spare tire, and tools.
2.
The vehicle should be placed on a flat floor.
3.
Draw vertical lines (Vertical lines passing through respective head lamp centers) and a horizontal line (Horizontal line passing through center of head lamps) on the screen.
4.
With the head lamp and battery in normal condition, aim the head lamps so the brightest portion falls on the vertical lines.
A : Vertical (Low/High)

Head Lamp And Fog Lamp Aiming Point

1.
General Type (VOR)
A.
Turn the low beam on without driver aboard.
B.
The cut-off line should be projected in the allowable range (shaded region) shown in the picture.
C.
If head lamp leveling device is equipped, adjust the head lamp leveling device switch with 0 positions.

2.
Turn the front fog lamp on with driver seated in the vehicle.
The cut-off line should be projected in the allowable range shown in the picture.
