Default Light problem

Im having a headlight issue with my 07 sti. The passenger hid wasnt working, so tried different bulb, and wasnt working. And tried working ballast, and still isnt working. So when i turn the light on, the light flickers, but doesnt turn on.

What could be the problem??

Check and clean the ground(s). Clean the socket as well.

Measure pin 2 on the connector going to the chassis from the ballast. Check for resistance between that connector and ground. It should look like a perfect short to ground if it is ok. The wire should be black that you are testing. Also check the connector to the ballast for signs of corrosion or pins not making good contact. Test for 12 volts on pin 6 with the low beams on. BE CAREFUL NOT TO MESS WITH THE HIGH VOLTAGE SIDE OF THE BALLAST WHEN ITS CONNECTED IT WILL HURT BAD, EVEN FATAL IF THE VOLTAGE HITS YOU.

**For testing the power to the ballast and the ground disconnect the ballast.

I see this thread is from a few months ago. I just dont wantt o start a new thread. I have had issues with my passenger HID since i bought the car in july. When I turn my lights on, 60% of the time my passenger light wont come on. I have to jiggle the black ground wire (I believe) and then it will come on and stay on. Maybe one time it has went off while driving. Anyways, last night I jiggled it and BAM! now its just flickering like crazy. Also noticed my high beam flashed on real quick and dimmed back off. Just trying to see if i can narrow it down. checked the fuses, switched them still nothing. figured it wasnt the fuses but i just gave it a shot. any help would be awesome!
