    Default Fault In My HIDs?

    Dont know what is wrong with them :s

    Bought them around a week ago, the bulbs were lightly superglued in because i had no clips in my lights

    Then the ballasts were held up to stuff by ties, ( one to some wiring, the other to the metL framemabove the headlight)

    First time i used my HIDs they were fine... For about a minute then they switched off :s

    Went to the guy who fitted them, he said the ballast were over heating, said will need bigger ballasts,


    My friend who ordered them said he gave me the HID kit he uses and hes never had a problem with them, he also said everyone else who ordered them off him never had a problem.

    I had a play about with the HIDs, i couldnt pull out the bulbs as they were superglued, but changed the ballasts round and what not,

    Found that after i taken the ties off, the ballast didnt overheat, yet still cut out at around the same time,

    I took one of the ballasts out ( so just one headlight) and the bulb lasted much longer, tested this with both ballasts one at a time with each bulb, results still showed they lasted longer with one headlight.

    Does anyone know what the problem is?

    At the moment i think my car needs a bigger fuse for the lights?

    You need cancelors by the sound of it. And dont glue the ****** bulbs in you plank.
    You can modify the original bulb holder to work with a HID kit.
    With the lights on does it effect your radio signal.???? If it does you have a cheap rubbish kit and my advise would be to remove it and get a decent one.

    Your car will be full canbus

    Dont the cancellors just remove the dash errors crespo

    I cant see it being a fuse problem, to be honest the kit/ballasts are probably duff so cant you send it back for a refund/replacement (less the superglue)

    With my HID's direct kit my drivers side headlight would go out after a while if you dont fit the Cancelor they supplied with the kit. It would also say the drivers side fog was blown every now and then as well.

    With the cancelor fitted it solved all issues.

    This is what i got.

    They just fit between the ballast and bulb. and sort out any shut downs, Flickering or bulb warnings.
    2 Of these should sort out the OP's shut down problem. Next day delivery as well.
