Hi, about a month now the passenger side HID headlight on my 2010 CX-9 GT would flicker on start up. Today it's not lighting at all. Any suggestions? I'm thinking of getting the oem ballast replaced.
it's for an Infiniti, but the process is similar...... they show the housing removed from the car to take the video easier,
you do not need to remove the housing from your CX-9
hopes this helps....
replacing a bulb is lot easier and cheaper than replacing the OEM ballast.... however, DO NOT BUY cheap ebay D2S bulbs,
they will damage your OEM ballast.
Hi sorry for the late reply was away, now tackling this. It's not the D2S bulb so I'm going to have the ballast replaced.
I have another question I noticed my park lights were blown so I am also changing those, when I inspected I noticed there are side marker bulbs but I have never seen them on before. When do they light? Is it together with the park lights?

You might want to try the igniter & cable before you buy a ballast. Strangely, I can't find where Mazda sells the igniter. Doesn't show to come with the bulb or the ballast. They are on ebay though. You could also get a ballast and an igniter on ebay together for cheap. Thankfully mine are still working 100% on my 2008.
