When I turn on the headlites the only lite to come on is the small amber
(drivers side). If I hold the high beam lever full back the inner two lites
(passenger side ) lite up. My non VW mechanic says its not the lite bulbs
themselves, he swapped them. My local VW dealer (Timmons) is not
trustworthy, any suggestions out there? Its a 06, v6.

Which type of headLIGHTS do you have? Not trying to be a spelling Nazi, but it helps with the Search function. :- )

Of course the mechanic says it's not the bulbs. :- /

What happens when you push the headlight stalk FORWARD, to engage high beams?

Prob with Headlites

I don't know what you call them, maybe "GoldBricks" since they cost $ 175
each. When I went to check for you a few minutes ago the lites that worked
this afternoon,(passenger side) are now dark while the ones that did not work earlier (driver side) are now lit up. (Bulbs OK )They only work with High beam.

I had a similar problem on my 06 a couple of years ago. It ended up being the headlight controller inside the light cartridge---- had to replace the whole thing..... cost me $600

Headlite Controller

Dear Treging,
Is there a controller for the entire car or are there one for each side?
I looked on E bay and they list ballast & controller for under $100 each,
is this the same thing ?
I assume you would need one for each side but I am not sure .
