Odd issue I have here, I hope its just the bulbs, but I know there's a DRL problem

Issues:
1. DRL's are not working (The DRL light on the dash stays on)
2. both Low Beams are out (HIDs) I've had them for 6 years
3. High Beams: When I turn it on, only 1 (Driver side) light turns on.
4. Maintenance required is flashing as well

Checked:
1. Fuses/relays are all fine, inside car and in engine bay

Haven't checked:
1. need to check bulbs

I've checked the forums, and haven't found anything. Does anyone have any ideas so it'll simplify my search when I take apart the front bumper?

Just a guess. But I'd start with the HIDs. Our electrical systems are so fussy and sensitive; it wouldn't surprise me if something simply burned out, fell out of electrical spec, began leaking (electricity), etc... that the system is confused. I really don't know that much about the HID conversions and what's involved. But I'd check the bulbs as well as the ballasts, resistors, or whatever extra parts were required to make it all work within the specs of the original headlights. They can still test 'good'; but be 'out of spec'. Kinda' like a battery that still shows current; but not enough to do what it was designed to do.

Good Luck,

thats the plan this weekend. I need time and light to take apart the front end to get to all those parts. But its going to be a paint.

I'll update when I'm done.
