    HID Problems

    Hey guys just wondering if anyone can help me with this.

    Today i had my new hid kit fitted by a mate of mine. I went for the kit recommended on here by a user about a month or so ago. It is a digital canbus kit and is supposed to throw up no errors what so ever.

    However i have a couple of problems.

    Sometimes they work fine. Other times they will come on then go off again after a second or so. If i turn them off and on again they may work or may go off again.

    Also i had them on on my way home from work only for a left dipped bulb out error to pop up on the dis.

    The ballast were mounted underneath the headlight unit.

    Anyone got any ideas ?? Would be much appreciated as i darent drive at night this weekend incase they decide to conk out half way down the road.

    Thanks

    Steve

    Try moving the ballasts as far back as you can from the headlight, see if that helps. I cable tied mine around the chassis legs..

    the company have now sent out new ballasts so will wait and see.

    However the wires on the original one arent that long so i will try mounting them as far back as possible!!

    cheers for the advice tho!!

    put them in the wheel arches there is loads of space there and you can just undo one bolt from the bumper to the wing and put it on there as i did. job done iv had mine there with no problems at all but then i dont have full dis but still its good as there are no other car wiers in there so they sit all on there own.
