    Default HID head ache

    I was having issues with a set of cheap hids from ebay so changed to a CANBus pro set up from hids direct (only been on three weeks). All was fine until yesterday when the passenger side went out and wont come back on. It was the passenger side which caused problems with the other set too but those just wouldnt fire up. I have to swap the bulb over at some point so that hids direct will either send a new ballast or bulb. What a mess about, sick of having the front of the car off

    Seems to happen on a few cars. Surprised to hear it happening on one of the new pro canbus kits, thought they were all sorted?
    Had noticed the two main HiD places (HiD4U and HiD Direct)were charging wildly different prices now, £60+ at one and £100+ at another for canbus kits.

    Get someone with Tech2 or similar software and enable them in the UEC.

    The ecu pulses the bulbs whereas with HIDs enabled it just gives a constant supply.
