Well, it depends on what the problem turns out to be. You can diagnose it with the parts you currently have. What to do is swap the electronic components one at a time from left to right. So start with the bulbs. Swap them from one side to the other. If the problem follows the swap then it was the bulb. If not then move on to the ballast on the bottom. If the problem follows it is the ballast, if not then it is going to be the ignitor. Since your car is a 2001 it would have single xenon lights if they are originals that came with the car.
