Hit a bump, made both headlights flicker...

So it did it again tonight, which makes it three times in the last week. Im guessing loose connection somewhere.

Anyone know where the light harness is located?

Well, its a good idea, however, both lights flicker so I doubt the issue lies within each separate light, but thanks tho.

I dont have a way of confirming but it appears that my fogs go out in that second as well. I definitely know that both xenon lights go out because it basically goes pitch dark for a second.

I just hope it doesnt go out one time and stay off.

couldn't hurt to check any and all connections, cables, fuses just to make sure there not lose or burnt or anything. i had same situation happen to me on my corner lights i checked everything and it was fine! It turned out that it was the metal connector that makes contact with the bulb in the housing. It was dirty so it would cause a bad connection and would come on/off on bumps or not at all, cleaned it with a compress air can and scraped it off with a small flat head. try that
