    Side repeater not working after HID installed

    Hi, installed HID kit to my car, all working perfectly first time, however, yesterday (2 days after HID upgrade) my drivers side front indicator and also the side reapeater stopped working.

    I played about with bulbs and found that the front was just a bulb problem, even though it did not look blown, but i cannot manage to get the side repeater working, i've tried new bulbs and everything, even traced the wiring to check its all plugged in.

    I should maybe note i had a frontal collision in July, and its all been fully repaired....

    Any help would be appreciated...

    Sorry for late response, i checked for earthing and it was fine, i traced the earth and it turns out i was only get .02 on my voltage meter, the other side gave .24v or something, anyway, traced back the wiring and found a break in the main loom, was a right pain to fix, but as a warning to all people fitting hid, when you have the bumper still off, do check all your light etc, as i didn't even pull at wires and 1 was damaged, and there were bolts loose all over the front of my car.
