Passenger low beam shuts off after a minute

So recently when i turn my low beams on, the passenger side only stays on for a minute or two then it shuts off. but if i were to shut it off and re-open them, sometime only the passenger goes on and the driver is off.

i've checked the fuses and the wiring, everything seems to be fine. i even unplugged my foglights. My headlights got no condensation or problems.

what could be the issues?

Your ballasts are going. You need to replace them. The cheapest alternative would be to either buy an aftermarket ballast from somewhere like DDM Tuning or a junk yard. The best and most expensive option would be directly from the dealer.
Rarely do HID bulbs burn out. They either don't turn on at all or they have a tint of purple. The usual piece that goes is the ballast which is what you've scribed is happening. Sometimes the ignitor (ballast) won't ignite the bulb.
