Got my HID'S in today.....NEED HELP!

K so I had my hid's installed today....he got them put in, both were on, boom I'm done.....I goto leave and one wouldn't come on.....so we tried again....neither came on......he rewired them so they both are connected to the same and it worked.....I left, got down the road and in the reflection of the car in front of me I see my headlight flickering on and off.....by the time I stopped it had gone completly off......I took it back to my guys shop and he cannot figure out what is wrong.....we finally got both to work BUT in order to do so I have to unlock my car ( one headlight comes on) I have to wait for one headlight to go off and start my car and turn my headlights on and they will stay on unlil I shut them off then they won't turn back on UNLESS I do those steps again......and if they are both working....when I shut my car off both stay on but the right one goes off after about 20 secs and the left goes off after about 90????? But yet there both hooked up at the same source!?? Please someone tell me how to fix this, I go back tomm at 2:30 to get my foglights converted and he's gonna try to fix this problem but we need help

Re: Got my HID'S in today.....NEED HELP!

Have you followed the steps on this website that have been talked about several times on grounding issues? Have you put in a relay harness? This stuff has been discussed many times, check the grounds properly and mount the grounds to the factory grounds, make sure you use a wiring harness, what type of HID's are you using?

Did you get relays? If you did make sure you grounded it correctly to the OEM fender.

Re: Got my HID'S in today.....NEED HELP!

As stated above, check your ground(s). Be sure the metal is sanded down and the bolt is tight. If it is, then get a relay. This is probably the issue.

Re: Got my HID'S in today.....NEED HELP!

def sounds like you're not using a relay or your mechanic doesnt know how to ground the negative cables properly! please post pics of the kit and of where the wires are grounded.

I agree. If people knew exactly how a relay works, it's functions and it's purpose they'd be amazed. LOL
