HID headlight problem

Hi guys, new to the forum. I have a 08 F350 that I put HID headlights and the left side headlight and fog light stopped working. The HID kit itself is fine, I checked all wiring and ballasts. What could this be?

They were fine for the first 2.5 weeks and now this...

I know Im a few months late on this but have you tried turning them off, waiting a few seconds & then turning them back on? This is very common in alot of the aftermarket kits. Alot of people opt to use a relay for the install instead of just the standard plug n play setup. The ballasts require a pretty hard intial hit voltage wise to fire the xenon bulbs, after the intial light up the voltage stays pretty even & on the same power draw as the factory lights....none the less, its less than satisfactory & can be a huge headache! best of luck!
