HID's pissing me off!!!!

Ok guys i need some help i have a 03 SVT with the stock HID headlights. The passanger side headlight will not come on. the high beams and every other light in the housing works fine. i have pluged the passanger side housing into the driverside wires and it works fine. So i kinda figure its the jumper wire that goes from the drivers side to the passanger side but5 have no idea how to fix it. just need some help. inspection went out may of 2010 hehe!!!! breaking the law breaking the law!!!!!

swap bulbs
if still no work,
swap ballasts

you just gotta do more troubleshooting.
by swapping housings, you just confirm that the one that works, still works. if 1 housing works on both sides, your problem resides in the housing and not in the car's wiring.

Isn't the ballast attached to the bottom of the housing. So he is moving the whole thing if I am not mistaken.
