2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class front headlight failure

Front head light failure. I’ve replaced the bulb with no resolution.

did you check the fuse?

The OP should be glad that this didn’t affect his rear headlights!
:wink:

  • Replacement bulb is faulty
  • Electrical power not getting to bulb socket
  • Fixture ground has come loose
  • Bulb socket damaged or corroded
  • Computer module faulty

Ask you shop to test for each of those, one by one. Eventually they’ll discover the problem.

I suspect the ballast has failed.
