Would you trust a used, tested one from a reliable (based on feedback) Ebay seller? Didn't see any used ones online - suspect that they're not cheap.

Thanks,
Tom

do they offer some kind of warranty? like 3 months or something.
whats the miles on it? i don't think i hear of them failing often so you are probably good.

Not really - it says it's guaranteed to work, but then says it's sold as is. The seller has 100% positive feedback, so I doubt that he's selling junk. It's sort of my last try (after having checked the fuses and installed a new bulb) before saying "uncle" and going to a garage.

Thanks,
Tom

Still no light

A new igniter from Ford was $248, so I went with the used one. It's installed, but still no light. Is there an easy way to test it (as well as the old one)?

At this point, is there anything else to check before I replace the ballast? Is there anything else left to test? The whole thing is getting a little frustrating, so it might be time to find a garage.

Regards and thanks,
Tom

you can swap the known working ballast with the non working ballast. If the light works after swapping then you know for sure that it is a ballast issue. you could have done the same thing with the igniter before buying another. good luck

I know, but it's a lot harder to get to the working side than the non-working side.
