Check the wiring connectors going into the headlight assembly. Maybe one of them is loose and this is what is causing the problem. If not a call to the dealer tomorrow is in order.

I missed the part of a single LED out. You are correct. A bad connection would have them all out as I was thinking.

Now probably a single LED needs replacing which will take the replacement of the entire assembly.
