    Since you said 9007, I'm assuming you have a USDM bugeye? It sounds like you have some crappy ebay headlights which are showing their build quality...

    We have little to nothing to go on here. From what you've said, it sounds like your best bet is a set of stock lights.

    its an 03 bug eye yes but i had the light ordered in an entire kit preassembled so all i had to do was plug and play basically. it hasnt been the case at all so far. first problem was the passenger side light would work occasionally. i ended up purchasing a new ballast for it and it seemed to work for the most part. i then learned last week that the reason my light still flickered was because my warning canceller was bad. so this weekend i purchased two to replace both warning cancellers, but i will have them by friday. and now i have no idea what happened tonight but now i have no low beams...

    A shot in the dark (ahem...) that might work is reverting to correct bulbs. Suspect a short or open in the low beam circuit. Only a voltmeter will give specifics.

    At this point I'm thinking about just taking out all the wiring and doing myself like I should have done in the first place. Does anyone know where I can find a step by step video or guide to wiring the lights??

    Best bet is to get a reliable kit with the correct bulb size. A few of my friends have purchased those eBay special plug n play kits. naturally, they failed after a short amount of time. Try and stay clear from splicing any harnesses from your stock lighting. Will end up being more of a headache to revert to stock lighting if you ever choose to do so. Let us know how everything goes when you put the new cancellers in. Maybe some pictures would help. Good luck!
