Headlight COMPLETELY OUT! Help

I have my right headlight that just went out completely. My blinker, low/high beams, DRL, everything is out. Any one that can help?

I have a 2007 328xi with hologen lights with regular H7s. (No ballest)

Check if the cable is in. Open your bonnet/hood and check to see if there's a loose cable :/

All wires seem fine. I tried moving a few wires but nothing.

Strange. Have you had any water damage lately? I'm wondering if your footwell module is shot. If the headlight plug are the same for the left and the right headlight, try switching the headlight and seeing what happens?

I had some fog inside looks like my cover might have let water in.

Any suggestions....

Hmm...something could have shorted. I think you're going to need a trip to a local indie shop, or you could play around with a voltage tester and compare sides. See if you can isolate where the problem is in the chain:

FRM-->wiring-->connector to headlight-->headlight. If the voltages differ significantly on the same pins on the same side, it's likely the FRM. If there is no power, it's either the FRM or the wiring harness that has become disconnected.

Have you checked your fuses? Before we reinvent the wheel, always good to check the simple things...
