    Default HID kit radio interference. WTF!!!

    Fitted my HID kit today and tryed it first with the cancellers and they worked for 1 minute and then killed themselves so i removed the cancellers and they work but flicker slightly and i get bad interference with the radio.
    What the hell.
    Anyone had this and have a fix.? Its driving me bonkers.

    after a quick google.. the cancellers are required to stop fault codes and the flickering... as for the interference.. common issue with cheap ballasts.
