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.
I've got the same problem. I ordered a front module from Ebay and tried it out and it did the same thing. I even replaced the turn signal hi/low beam arm with no luck.
I now have this problem resolved. I removed the FSB and noticed that there was a double row of large flat pins at the top of the connector to the fuse box. The top left pin looked slightly tarnished. I took the advice of others on this forum and slightly twisted every one of the flat pins but not so much that they would prevent the proper re-insertion of the FSB. I then replaced the FSB to the connector and... it worked! Obviously, the problem was a contact problem all along.
