    weird headlight issue 07 STi

    i noticed today that when i hit a speed bump my pass. side lowbeam projector light flickered then cut off, I turned the headlights off and then on again and they both came on fine, 10 seconds later the pass side flickered then turned off again, i checked all relays, it does this even when the relays are switched, the passenger side still flickers off, and stays off until the lights are turned off then back on...

    any ideas on what this could be?

    side note, you can hear a faint click when it flickers off if you have your head next to the headlight with the hood open...

    Consider swapping the actual bulb.

    good idea, ill do that next, could it be the bulb? i posted a video, obviously the bulb is working, but i guess that would rule out if it was a bulb problem or a wiring issue, also considering that it may be a bad ground

    If it is and STI you should have HID's so you may also want to check the ballasts and igniters . Though changing the bulbs would be easier.
