Default Driver headlight issue - help?

I have a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 Big Horn edition and am having a problem with a headlight that won't stay on. I replaced both high and low beam bulbs and they work until I hit a bump, then go out again. I can jiggle the wire and they come back on until I hit another bump. Suggestions, please?

Don't replace anymore bulbs...waste of money.

You are probably moving around the ground wire. You need to see if it is coming out of the plug. Try to push it back in until it clicks. That is going to be your problem if only one headlight is affected. I want to say it is the black with the green strip on the headlight connector.

Mine problem was the connector at the end of the harness that plugs into the headlight.

My stock light has the same problem. Were you able to get a connector from somewhere?

I had the dealer take care of it since it was still under warranty. I'm assuming they have the connector at the dealerships.
