    hid problem

    got an intermittent problem with one of my hids....

    if i have the lights on and then switch on the engine sumtimes the ns hid will flicker off but then if i turn the lights off and then on it will turn itself back on??

    could this be a problem with the bulb itself or is it likely to be the ballast that is dodgy???

    it is an aftermarket hid kit by the way....

    many thanks

    Id say its pretty common practice for aftermarket xenons to do that....mine are similar in that u switch them on with engine off and as soon as u start the engine - one of em switches off... turn em off then on again and normality resumes...

    AFAIK a lot of the kits around do this but it never affects them in normal driving conditions so IMHO its nothing to be worried about
