    Recently cracked the front bumper on my 2013 Prius Two (reversed over a disguised mound of ice in the driveway). Nothing major, just a crack running up not even halfway on the driver-side of the front bumper, however the driver-side headlight went out.

    I checked the LED bulb and it works fine (switched it to the passenger-side headlight and it comes on there), and I checked the fuse (the P/I 2 fuse at least, since there are no H-LP LH LO or H-LP RH LO fuses in the box).

    Is there a ready explanation for this or does it require some serious diagnosis?

    Did you check fuses under dash?

    So far I haven't, I'm flipping through the manual and don't see a fuse in the dash box that seems appropriate. Is there one you have in mind?
    I'm seeing some fuses listed as being involved with headlight cleaners and headlight leveling (don't have either equipped), seems strange that those could affect one headlight but not the other.

    If it's not the bulb or the fuse, that leaves the wiring as a possible culprit...
