    sharkeyes+ hids = dead battery :(

    rite peeps,just fitted sharkeyes with hids now as far as i know they were on for about ten mins at most,now ive come to start car up and battery is dead!

    just wondered if hids should ideally be on while engine is running?

    also ive heard about people connecting hids str8 to battery with relays etc..would that have owt to do with it?

    cheers

    they will work fine with the engine on but with it turned off they will drain the battery faster then the std H7's

    other than the dead battery, did it all go to plan?
