    Have you checked the fuse being. IIRC, there is a separate fuse for low beam and high beam.

    yep. check the fuses first, 2nd possible both bulbs are bad. other than that, you'll need a meter to check voltage and ground at the sockets. switch itself could be bad. need a meter to check that too.

    It sometime working just fine. So if fuse blown then it will never be working. Can you tell where them fuses are? Under steering or hood?
    Thanks

    It appears that the headlight fuses are underhood. Further, it appears that there are four fuses numbered and specified as follows:
    26 RH low beam (10A fuse for halogen and 15A for HID)
    27 LH low beam (10A for halogen and 15A for HID)
    28 RH high beam (10A)
    29 LH high beam (10A)

    See: Toyota Prius (XW20; 2004 - 2007) - fuse box diagram - Auto Genius

    PS I have no information on the configuration used in Cambodia. Your Gen2 may vary from pics and linked info as it was apparently placed in service outside of North America.

    For intermittent problems, check the headlight stalk (switch) and wiring harness connection at the steering wheel and replace as necessary.

    Down below is a link to an older Priuschat thread where that poster had a similar problem as your problem. That poster solved the problem by converting from HID bulbs to LED bulbs. Food for thought. I have halogen bulbs in my Gen2 (and therefore have no real life experience with the Gen2 HID system). Let us know how you make out.
