Headlight problems

I bought my car with these aftermarket headlights.

Recently, the driver side headlight wouldn't turn on. However, all I would have to do is pop the hood and just push the connector a bit, or pull the wires in some random direction and it would turn on. As of a few days ago, this remedy no longer works. Any idea what I can do to fix this?

Bad connection, take it apart and do it right, a soldered/shrink tube connection will last the life of the vehicle. You'll probably find a bunch of shitty butt-splice crimps that need to be replaced.

I got the same headlights.

Are u saying your low beam isnt working or your LEDs and Halos? Because they operate as two independent systems.

The leds on the side turn on but definitely not fully powered. The halos and the low beam are out completely

The LEDs will go full bright when u switch your fog lights on. The halo has its own ballast. If your connections are all fine, then thats most likely your problem. Search amazon for halo light ballast...theyre pretty cheap.

The low beam on that headlight uses the factory ballast and bulb. Either one could be the issue.
