Re: hid install problem

some punctuation would be fantastic.
and what HID kit do you have, so people with that kit and possibly respond to your issue.

Re: hid install problem

If you share highbeam on the same bulb, you lost it due to hid kits being single beam.
If its just one side, you need a hid wire upgrade kit, they wire straight to the battery so the ballast always gets power. And definitely need the make of the kit and bulb type.

Re: hid install problem

I had the same issue, passenger side wasn't working but the driver side was. Swapped the ballast and the passenger side worked but the driver side didn't.

Moral of the story: Defective ballast. If you can, get the ballast made out of metal, and not the "slim" ballast type.

Don't touch the bulbs either.

Re: hid install problem

just shake it a bit and see if it flickers or anything, and if it does you'll know you have a bad ballast. Happened to a friends HID set he had on his DA Integra. Some of the cheaper kits you get on eBay will not have that great of ballast.

Re: hid install problem

To test the ballast you can try plugging it into the other side that works. If the side that worked before now doesn't work after the switch, then its the ballast.
