Re: New HID kit flickering Please HELP

Added another relay to each headlight and the passenger headlight still "pulses". I ordered new bulbs and put those in and the same thing happened but cant notice it as bad. Any ideas what could be wrong?

Re: New HID kit flickering Please HELP

I've had the same problem. Depending if your using your stock relay or not. I actually ordered a relay with my new hids I have. My stock relay couldn't handle it. But it could be a ground if its a new relay.

Re: New HID kit flickering Please HELP

never had this issue with my xentec.

srtdzgn - have you tried switching ballasts yet? how did you "make" your own relay? are you sure you have the wires correct?

omar - i always have an extra fuse for the relay and extra relay in my truck just in case

Re: New HID kit flickering Please HELP



What else is grounded at the spot circled in this picture and at the same spot on the passenger side? I too have a xentec kit with one relay and two grounds and my passenger side is flickering. My interior radio light and dash lights are flickering too. Trying to determine if they are related. I have the headlights grounded in the circled area on both sides. Could they be a bad ground and interfering with grounds for the interior lights? (if that's what is grounded there)

Only other reason I can think of for the interior flickering is a bad multifunction stalk.

Thoughts are appreciated.
