I have search on this forum on this issue and cannot find a remedy or a possible fix to it =(
I have been getting this error message ":
"Low Beam R, check lamp"
My passenger side low beam suddenly failed to turn on , I have since changed the bulb to a brand new h7 non hid one still not working!I even tried to plug it in both ways still no luck!
The high beam works on both sides , and the left front bumper marker is burnt out or not on either.

Can someone please direct me to what can possibly be wrong:crybaby2:. Thank you !

This is a 00 s500 airmatic suspension.Please help so I can drive my car at night

Thank you in advance!

If you have a standard Halogen, the proper bulb is an H 7.
(If you, in fact, don't have halogen the other bulb number as well as every other bulb numbers are below after the instructions.)

Get a flashlight; it can be dark.
Depress top tab on black plastic cover and remove.
Remove two wire plug from the rear of the old bulb and move aside.
Move the spring clip down and over and swing out of the way.
Remove the old bulb.
Using rubber gloves, open new a H7 bulb package so as not to get skin oil on bulb.
Insert the bulb into housing with tab in correct slot.
Move the spring over the bulb and engage it in the slots.
Reconnect the two wire plug.
Replace the black plastic housing.
Check the lights for function.
All this took about 10 minutes the first time and 5 after that! Good luck!

The bumper light replacement is on the stickies as a video.

It may be the control unit, best way to check is to swap the control units left to right and see if the problem moves to the other side. If it does then change the bad control unit.

According to EPC it should be Xenon but without the vin # I cannot be 100% sure.

DON'T ASSUME

Sometimes a new bulb is defective, right out of package

It has happened to me.

Swap left & right bulb which is known to be working and see what happens.

It is a proven method and works well in diagnostics, simple but effective.

Ok but mine does not have the control module as it is the NON HID model! Correct me if I am wrong thanks.

It is possible that a previous owner has replaced the Xenon with Halogen but why would anyone do that?? A couple of pictures of the back of the lamp unit would help a lot.
