    First check your fuses.
    Then swap ballasts over, if it still won't light the bulb is faulty.

    It's probably going to be the unit below the headlamp, just check what condition it's in!

    You can get an adaptor cable that connect the aftermarket type ballast to the D2R/D2S type fittings on OEM HID's.
    Probably cheaper than buying a new one from Vauxhall.
