    HID issues ?

    Hi people, got back from pvs with a new set of hid bulbs etc, fitted them ok however every now and again when i turn them on one doesnt come on so i have to unplug it from the ballast then plug it back in and its fine, its a tight connection so its not loose just odd, and tonight they both didnt work they flickered so i turned the light switch in the car off then on and they were fine ...bizarre??

    Jonesy, I have had very similar issues...... see this thread

    I am hoping it will be an easy to fix issue as I haven't had them fitted long. About 2 weeks..

    mine do the same and i think its down to battery voltage.
    If i turn them on before starting the engine they both start fine.
    If i turn then on just after starting the engine 90% of the time only the drivers will turn on.
    If i turn then on after letting the engine run 10-15 secs to recharge the battery they will both turn on.

    Tony I think you may be on to something.... I think this is battery related... If there isn't enough charge in the battery then only One of the HIDS will be powered up.... Since my battery ran flat due to running the stereo with the engine switched off detailing the car.. One of the HIDS isn't working.. I might have to remove my battery and fully recharge it..See if this cures the issue
