    2002 9-5 aero, neither xenon nor H7 headlights not working

    passenger side xenon failed, replaced driver and passenger xenon with philips units (6000k) from http://www.philipsxenon.com. both worked fine for a week or so then driver side failed. swapped passenger and driver side bulbs and drivers side still not working. hi lo metal flapper works on both side. tried swapping the control unit relay in relay box under hood with like kind(same numbers and all, gray colored relays) from relay box and now neither side xenon work. swapped back and still neither side xenon works. didn't check this before all above done but the H7 bulbs don't work either when engaging flash to pass from control stick on steering column. if it matters, front and rear fog's work as do all parking lights. I'm baffled, please help someone as i obviously can't drive at night now until it fixed. Desperate in Atlanta Georgia.

    Have you checked the fuse?
    Maybe check under the relays and see if a wire is off. (The relay table lifts strait up. Just use a flat screwdriver to push the 4 tabs in.)
