Lighting Issues

Having some technical difficulties with my headlights. They are some ebay ****s (previous owner added) with Xentec 6k HIDs. This morning I realized that one of the projector low beams went out and my High Beam bulbs are set as "driving lights". Can't seem to turn them off and make my projector come back on. I've visible checked the wiring myself and disconnected and reconnected the ballast for that HID and wont come back on.

Tonight on my way home from work, I noticed on my dash that the High Beam indicator is turned on but its faded. I fully turn on the High Beams and they work and the indicator comes on bright blue. Turn them off and the indicator stays as a faded blue.

Thank God for my fog lights lol. I'd be screwed at night without them.

Re: Lighting Issues

Guys don't flame me, i know this post is a bit old. Good info for everyone, however. One of your ballasts is shot and shorting the circuit. I guarantee one of the low beam fuses under the hood is blown. I only know because the same thing happened to me with a xentec ballast. DDM ftw.

BTW those headlight housings are friggin sexy, are they retros, or can you tell us where you picked them up?
