sounds like your bulb is shot... Time to look for a new one or pair if you want them to match

hey man..there was a thread like this not too long ago, but it seems like your ballast is going out..i had the same prob with the color differnce and bought new bulbs..my old bulbs were still good but the ballast was shot..so switch the bulbs around first before you buy..if you don't want to spend money of course on new bulbs..but if your looking for new stuff..bulbs from motoringmax from ebay is pretty good from what i read on this forum, also check out AAC's orcle brand, there service is top notch and so is there products
