Burnt out Boomerang

Has anyone else had a boomerang on the stock headlight go out?

My passenger side boomerang went out this weekend and I'm trying to figure out if replacing the board with a Switch-Back board will fix the issue. Or, would I be better off replacing the headlights with aftermarket?

Check your fuses.

2 year warranty, if you hurry, make the dealer fix it.

That's what I thought too. As it turns out my car was originally purchased on November 12, 2015. I am the second owner and learned about the original purchase date when I took it to the dealer last Saturday.

They offered to pay half of the replacement, but it irritated me enough that I thought I'd try other avenues first.

I took a look at the fuses and confirmed that there is power for the parking lights to the headlight. That's not it. It looks like a problem with the headlight.
