I have a 2015 Dodge Charger with the HID headlights & the driver light keeps going out but will come back on, ive changes the headlights twice thinking it’s a bad ballast but the same thing I happening. I took it to the dealership to check the wiring & they say they didn’t find an issue but my headlight on the driver is still going in & out. I don’t know what else to do at this point besides replace the entire light assembly. Any info would help

Hopefully I am not late to the game here. I actually just had this issue in my 2016 SXT Rallye. I was afraid the HID bulb was out on the passenger side but it would come on periodically and go off periodically. Wasn't sure if it was a wiring issue or not. I was about to replace the bulb when I came across a forum that mentioned this....

The drivers side headlight and passenger side headlight are 2 different fuses in the fuse box (under the hood). My passenger side headlight kept going out/coming on, as I mentioned... I pulled out the fuse associated with this headlight and indeed it did look light it was slightly fried. Maybe this is why my headlight kept going out and back on, since it was only slightly fried. I went and bought a 5 pack of fuses (10 amp were they?) and replaced the fuse, bam no more headlight issues.

The fuses for the drivers side and passenger side are in the fusebox as numbers 15 and 16. I forget which one is driver side, I believe 15, but you may want to double check. I searched for hours for headlight issues and could find nothing until I came across this. Turned out to be a 2 dollar fix as opposed to $100+ for a new HID bulb. Who knows how much an entire headlight unit is...

You should be able to tell if the fuse is faulty once you pull it out. If you can't tell, I'd suggest replacing anyway since fuses are so cheap. See if that fixes your issue.


Thanks,
Tim

Thanks Tim I took it to stateline dodge & the checker the wiring harness & found a wire melted in the fuse box (PDC)so they rerouted the wire to a different fuse & irs worked every since however they did recommend that I replace the entire wiring harness which is about $3,600

Wow, dayummm is right lol. Well at least they found the culprit... seems like the fuse box is the problem in alot of these cases. Glad I could somewhat direct you to the problem. Took me hours of searching online to find this solution LOL.

As for the replacement of the wiring harness... I would think someone would have to be out of their mind to pay that to get it replaced. I'd maybe take it elsewhere and see what someone else says about it. If everything is working now I prob wouldn't bat another eye over it but to each their own opinion.

Thanks and stay safe!
Tim

I am having the exact same problem and no one can give me an idea of what the problem is. This makes it impossible to drive at night cause I never know when the lights will work and when they wont.

Chuck, read the post that Tim wrote (#6). There is another thread on this forum regarding this problem. Apparently, this is a common problem and is related to a poor connection at the fuse/fuse holder. Check your headlight fuses. With any luck, you'll find that one or both fuses are partially melted.

We’re you ever able to find the issue, I’m having a similar issue but both of my headlights will go off at the same time randomly and will either come right back on or not come on at all until I turn the car off and on again
