Re: XenonDepot Xtreme HID's

yes...IMO thats not a proper ground becasue it is on a piece of metal bolted to the headlight frame rail. Look in the pic showing the entire battery...right next to the battery's negative terminal on the fender wall is the proper ground.

Re: XenonDepot Xtreme HID's

Kyle I had the same problems with my HIDs and I had the grounds in the same place you do. I concur with Scott, you should run the grounds to the fender ground.

Thats actually where I had them grounded to, I removed those grounds and now they are on the fendor walls....the drivers fog light is attached to the fender wall which the battery grounds to. The lights are working now, but last night they turned magically on again, so hopefully this does the trick, if not then I'll have to check the bulbs.

Re: XenonDepot Xtreme HID's

good luck...but I am 99% sure that the ground is your problem. I am amazed Irf you haven't had any problems. I am going to get an HID kit soon so thanks for the info here!!

Re: XenonDepot Xtreme HID's

I would bet bad grounds are the cause of 80% of the HID problems
