2016 Acadia with Led DRL’s and Halogen headlights
DRL just went out. Since incorporated into headlight assy it would appear the entire assy has to be replaced ($500 each)
However I watched a vid of a guy replacing just the “ballast?” On a similar 2012 Denali. I assume it’s a power module for the Led, not a ballast, on the bottom of the headlight housing. ?
Anyone purchase and replace just the module?

That 'ballast' in the video is likely the igniter for HID headlights. 2012 Acadias have a totally different headlight setup.

Well, that video says 2014. Guess it will be similar to yours.

It’s a $40 power module or a $500 headlight… was hoping someone else tried it
If you want to know whether someone has tried it through the years, search the forum for your answer. You'll get good results in the search when you use a string of relevant keywords and the "advanced search" tool.

I did with no luck yet. They changed the headlight/drl configuration too often over those couple years
Still looking

Unfortunately, I have never used such LED lighting. In general, I have always wanted to buy something like this. The colored lighting calms me down and gives extra motivation for work. That is why I replaced all my light bulbs in the house with LED ones from https://www.vont.com/product/vont-bulb-color-smart-light-bulbs-smart-bulbs/. Btw, you should contact qualified specialists in the field of mechanics. I think it is not the best idea to repair yourself. This way, you can break some important parts after all.
