Any ideas on what the problem could be?
I would guess it's an HID / re-wiring issue.....

It's still all original wiring and everything. I haven't converted the headlights to HID yet.

You can test this by running a jumper from the blue wire on the larger (I think it's 10 pin) connector on the junction box to a known hot source with the key on.

Ok I'll have to give that a test here as soon as I finish my food. We will have to see what all happens, and I'll do another reply after I do that test.

So I got my headlight working again, and come to find out is that if the 3 yellow wires corrode at the butt connectors things quit working lol.

I got it all fixed now, and those wires will never ever corrode ever again and sealed up tight.

I bought a package of butt connectors that are also the heat shrink ones, and they have a fluid in them that seals them even better. I'm just going to have to get to the other end of things when I get home in a few weeks and go from there with it.
