ive managed to get my hands on a set of afl xenon headlights complete with ballasts and hid bits. i bought these becuase i want to use them as non afl. just basicly a set of hid headlights.
as you can see box on the left is a HID ballast (genuine GM) i want to use these. the bulbs are 6k and when the head lights are fitted and i turn them on i can hear them power up for 2 seconds then go off. if i turn them on and off a few times they stay on but when i turn the engine on they flicker like a disco
after doing some digging around i found out the i needed to swap over pins 7-8 and ground pins 9-10. as my car didnt have xenons i needed to drill 9-10 out of my headlight plug. and i went to the scrapyard and got some extra pins from a scrapped car to keep it genuine.
i did as above fitted the headlights turned them on they came on for a few seconds as predicted. got them teck 2d but nothing changed. they flash on for afew seconds and go off.
if i turn them on and off a few times they come on and stay on but when i turn my engine on they start flickering like a disco.
there must be a way to get them to work as non afls. i just want them as genuine gm hids
if anyone has any ideas i would really be greatful cheers
