you can get one from a dealer spares

If all the items you listed were replaced then you have either a ground breach where no ground is reaching the negative post of the headlamps or there is no power source connection. Start with verifying power to the headlamp switch. If yes, verify power from the relay. If yes, verify power to the terminal at the headlamp. If yes, start with the ground circuit. If there is no ground connection you can save years of frustration by fabricating a new ground circuit from the body to the headlamp ground terminal. I'm going o get frowned upon for that but, hey, if it works for the time being, right?

I'm not 100% on this one but 99.9% sounds like the body control module was reset. The car would have to be brought to the dealer to SYNCH the BCM & security system. Possibly just SYNCH just
the remotes to the car. Good Luck, Frank M
