    So I thought one of my head lights had burnt out. I changed the headlight bulb only to find out that it still did not work. While investigating this problem I found that the light that was not working would change from one side to the other side as you pulled on the dimmer switch. Auto electric shop said it is the front control module on the front of the fuse box. So far most auto salvage yards do not even know what it is. However the dealership knows and they want 350 for the part. Many web sights are confusing this part with the ECM which is under the dash board it is not the same part.

    i had the same problem, i removed the module cleaned the pins and slightly bent the upper flat pins for a tighter fit, i also applied a very slight film of die electric grease to the pins. i installed the module and everything is working ok.

    Only one headlight works at a time, it changes back and forth when you try to turn on the brights. I have found no solution yet.
