    Little HID troubleshooting needed :)

    ok i fitted my HIDs and as my car is fitted with the OBC bulb detection errors i had to get the HIDS that fitted with the canbus system to make sure that the dash didnt read that the bulbs are blown trouble is when i turn on the HIDS they both go on fine but then the left turns off but after i turn it off and on again a couple of times its fine so anyone any ideas how to keep the left light on instead of having to switch on and off again

    Are you doing it with the engine running?

    Sometimes they do that if the battery is low.
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    passenger side works fine? I had this when trying 2 fit my HIDs, its something to do with the canbus running thru the car on that side (from wot i was told) as the other side (passenger) works fine everytime

    from talking to Ultra Auto Cosmetics (lighting) 2 cars that they cant crack with canbus is the Mk5 Astra and new Audi A3.

    They said they were building a slimline ballast and warning canceller into a new set of HIDs that should be released soon and fully working with these cars.
