will runnning the codes tell me the exact problem?

My passenger side HID went out yesterday (04 330ci), indicator on my dash shows its out, replaced the buld. nothing. swapped each sides ballast, still nothing. from research on here, its either the wires or the ignitor. Without having to do all the work of taking it out, would i be able to go to a autoshop and have them run the codes to tell me? btw my kit is all OEM.

I dont think so.. because none of the ballast or igniter have diagnostic sensors.

for an 04 coupe, the igniter is on the back of the bulb. so it's an easier swap than doing the ballast
