    Default passenger HID not working intermittently

    Just noticed a problem last night my passenger side HID had stopped working so i changed it for a spare one i had in the shed and it worked fine, let the car run and notice it flick off checked all connectons they were fine so disconnected the main and re-connected and it comes on but only stays on for about a minute at max.

    This is only the passenger the drivers side is fine, i do not have the cancellers fitted as i didnt need them and i have had these HID in for nearly 2 years.

    I did recently replace the passenger headlight with a second hand one after a wee bump but that was on sunday and i have been using them since then.

    Any ideas whats up ? do i try the cancellers out ??

    cheers

    Swapped the ballasts over and the drivers one isnt working, tried the cancellers and nothing so i guess its a faulty ballast

    I had a similar problem..eventualy turned out to be the connectors. Ended up cutting all the connectors off and replacing thenm with crimp on connectors covering them with insulation tape..worked for me.

    I had the same problem the connections inside the connectors become loose, I just adjusted the pins inside to improve connection, They are prone to water inside also, so give them a blast with WD40.
