I figured that would be the first step in the hunt. However I am trying to think of what else could be the cause. When I made my relay harness originally I used one relay for both lights to share. Was this wrong? Should I have a separate relay harness for each light? It is the same harness that I was using with my last setup, but maybe these need more juice to light and stay lit? One other thing I thought of is the fact that the wires come off the relay to the driver side lamp and then goes across to the passenger side. So maybe I need to make the wires to each lamp the same length from the relay? I am not sure I am just throwing different ideas out there! Or it is just a bad/failing ballast! I would appreciate any help
On a good note, I swapped the 6ohm resisters out for 3ohm and the LEDs seem to be doing great now
I would get a dedicated relay harness for each side and ground each at the fender bolt. I recommend the Xenondepot relay harnesses.
