    Vehicle : Vectra C Prefacelift.

    Trim : "Elite"

    Engine : 2.0dti

    Year : 2003

    Mileage : 130,000

    Default HID Problem

    Hi people, so yesterday i installed my 6k set into my 2003 vectra c. Now i noticed on the driver side one there's a bit of a noticable flickering going on, the other one is spot on and seems brighter too. I contacted the seller and he told me to hook the bulbs up to a 12v independent power supply to tell if its a bulb or if i need a harness relay, but i don't have anything i could use.. now i know from a passat i had before to get the hids working you would have to enable an HID and anti-shutter options using a VCDS cable. Is there something a little extra you have to do to get them working on the vectra c ?(prefacelift)

    Am i missing something?

    One of mine is flickering too. It's either a duff bulb or ballast. Think it's bulb in my case because the ballasts are only a year old.

    is it a canbus ready kit? that would cause strobing
    but if yours is flickering i would suspect duff bulb or ballast, try swapping them round and see if the problem moves
