    Ballasts are on their way out...

    Try this next time..... turn on lights... wait for beep, turn off lights then wait ten seconds before turning lights back on... they 'should' fire up... if they do then your ballasts are on their way out.. if they don't then chances are they are fecked and need replacing... this happened to mine and I replaced them with aftermarket ones from site sponsor EM Tuning

    I recently posted a thread about this....

    I too have an S3 and changed the bulbs this must have upset the ballasts somehow and they decided to give up. First one headlight wouldn't fire up, turned them off and on again and they both worked. After a few days of this though the nearside gave up completely so I only had one working headlight.

    Well I ordered new ballasts and they now work perfectly, infact coupled with the 6000k bulbs its like a brand new pair of headlights and the light output seems alot better than before.

    Use EM tuning cannot praise this guy enough for helping me out.
