    Has this happend to anyone with their headlight lens? I got condensation on the inside of my whole lens. And my low beam bulb burned out. Noticed it the other day while it was raining. Is there a way to repair it? Or do I have to get another headlight lens?

    Try taking it out a seeing if there are any cracks anywhere? If not, you might be able to pop it open and reseal it... Also check that all bulbs were seated properly, cause if you don't do the full turn (or if you were slightly off) the seal won't be good and that could be why you have condensation in your headlights. Your low beam is the same as your high beam... Hopefully it's just the bulb (or you're talking about your DTRL's) cause if the ballast is blown, that's pretty expensive to replace... Check the contacts to make sure there's no corrosion caused by the condensation...

    What did you end up doing? Did you fix it?

    Are there any fuses I could check? I also switched to another bulb to see if it's just the bulb and no go. Other bulb wouldn't turn on.

    First thing to do is switch bulbs... If your working bulb doesn't work on the other side, then it's obviously not just the bulbs... There are a few fuses, but I forget if the front bulbs were separated by side... I don't think they were... So you might have a blown ballast... Obviously look into the fuses first, but I think it's one fuse for both headlights...

    Are the fuses for that under the hood or in the side panel under the driver's side?

    I can't remember but I believe under the hood... There are two additional fuse boxes under the hood and one is EXTREMELY hard to get too...

    I read somewhere on another thread there's another fuse box hidden behind the battery that has the fuse for our headlights. Can anyone confirm this?

    Well checked that hidden fuse box and found no fuses blown. So figured it had to be the ballast. So went to town on changing out the headlight and ballast. Got a ballast real cheap on ebay. And sure enough my headlight works again. Thanks everybody.
