Re: Omelet's Wicked Pissah Painted LED Headlights

So today I took my first long night drive since the instal and my passenger side HID was flickering at randoms times. Sometimes it would shut off for miles and then come back on, just to start flickering a while later. I haven't had the time to swap the ballasts yet. 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.

Thanks Scott, but I got it figured out. There was a bad connection in one of the plugs that was causing the flicker. I fixed it and they have been working beautifully!

Ok I see what you are saying, that makes sense! Although I always have my fogs on too so it's not like everything will just go black. Time to do more wiring
