headlight problem

ok so i have 04 svt eap w/ factory hid kit and passneger side light went out, so instead of checking anything my first act was to try new buld, so i put a new buld in and it worked for about 2 seconds, then flickered and then went out, so i went to check the buld and it was fine, so then i decided to go ahead and check the fuses, the fuse was blown (15A) so i put a new one in and then i tried to turn on lights again and then the same thing happened, so i went online saw some threads about that happening and say that it might be the ignitor or ballast, so i went ahead and got a new ignitor and ballast online from a site that said they were checked and worked properly, but i dunno so, i then installed them and then when i tried to turn it on again it still had no power, also the fuse doesnt blow and all of the other lights are working just fine, the highbeam/corner/signals/driverside low, so i just dunno what is going on, i dunno if there is a relay that controls the seperate sides on the low beams or what??
so if someone could please give me some insite to what im missing lol cause i have to work everynight this week till 7 and sooner or later with my luck im gonna get caught by the 5-0, i just need to know if any1's had this problem be4 and if they know what to do
thanxx Josh
