    Exclamation Flickering HID'S

    Hi bought my Vectra a while ago and have been complaining to my little brother, who has them fitted to his Vectra B GSI. My good little brother bought them for me for Christmas. I was CHUFFED I then had a go fitting them. I read Green Growler's excellent "how to". When I fitted one of them I put the lights on BRILLIANT until I put the engine on. I have read a number of posts about flickering lights. I am asking whether this Bulb Alarm Faliure Fix for £19.99 (Pair) will work or is there any other way that I can buy. I am too lazy to do the soldering and I dont want to buy a new kit.

    Yep, those bulb failure alarms should do the trick if you don't already have them.

    Don’t carry on using them while they are flickering, you will damage the ballast, and sooner or later it'll burn out all together.

    Do your bulb failure come on currently? If not, then the price for these kits is NOT good value, as you only need a small capacitor between the +ve and earth to prevent the flicker. These cost less than a quid from eg Maplins.
