    it looks like there are two sources of light. One of them is not coming on. Is this a bulb or an LED? you might want to check to see if it's needs replacement

    Are they both originals? There are VERY different arrangements for different countries - maybe someone changed one?

    [It looks like a Gen 4 - but your profile shows 2013 PRIUS??]

    It looks like one is dead. I'll have to check my 2017 when it gets dark here in California.

    I would agree with that.

    The top one looks like mine (UK Spec) with the light coming from the LED at the top of the lamp and the bottom one looks like another spec as the light is coming from the bottom lamp which in the UK is the indicator.

    Yes, this is mine - and I believe they're very different from USA:

    Maybe you guys are on a wild goose chase? I think the two headlights in initial post are the same, just with one out, different exposure, it's hard to tell?
