Hopefully someone with more experience with wiring will chime in...

When you say that they only work in day light, I am assuming your map lights would also not work if you manually turn your headlights on during the day...

I would double check all the wiring for the HID harness, sounds like something is grounding out when the main lights are on.

i can turn the main lights on during the day and turn that light on, then it works. i played with it a little this morning and it seems to be working now. in time we will see if it continues. thanks though.
