HID trouble

well i was riding around earlier this week and my headlight melted on driver side. i have been running 55w 5000k hi/low light from ddm tuning and evidently it got lose and backed out and melt the whole back side the light and caught the wires on fire. well i my fog lights working and all my corning lights, but my passenger headlight doesn't work and i was wondering if it has to do with the relays and the way both lights r hooked together? i checked my fuses and all seem to be ok. im not sure which direction to head, any help would be appreciated. thanks

I'd call ddm...to me though, just another reason to do HID's right- a retrofit. Hid bulbs aren't meant to be used in a reflector style lighting system, they're designed to be used in a projector set up. Click the link in my sig for more info if your interested.

I scraped my HIDs from DDM tuning, in my experience they were complete junk and I have many friends that have recently gone back to halogen. Keep your eyes open on all the HID lights out there where one is out or flickering or dim, its everywhere. Just my opinion thought.
