the inner light would be your non-xenon DRL's, ie they should be on at all times when you do not have your actual xenon head-lights turned on.
are you not getting light out of ONE or BOTH? could be a bulb issue if it's just the one...if it's both, i really have no idea what it could be, but unless you have your headlights manually turned on, or the auto mode has turned them on, those inner ones should be lit with non-xenon DRL's at all times.
was your car ever previously coded? a lot of guys will code the car so that those bulbs never come on, so that when you are in "DRL" mode, just the AE's are lit...something i've been planning to do.
