Dude, this happened to me to but only for the left headlight. I kept wondering what is was, I changed the light on the headlight and it still wasn't working and when I turn on my headlights the turn signals dont work. They only work when the headlights are off

I bought this one https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005NLQAHS/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I've had good results w/ my BlueDRIVER OBDII Scan Tool, $9900 Amazon & excellent tech support. Beyond excellent. They actually answer their phone.
