CCFL Halo out and dead...

Bought these last march, been perfect then before Xmas, it seemed one was taking longer to start up... then simply it's never come back on (the inner Halo). They're the CCFL ones and it's soooo annoying... the other inner side is now starting to take time to come on... is this a ballast or simply the halor's going? Annoying if so after 10 months of use?

Re: CCFL Halo out and dead...

I have those lights except the halos in mine are LED. I'm not familiar with those in the CCFL but from other experience those cheaper ccfl's never last especially in an exterior automotive part. As far as what to do as a replacement I'm not sure because it would require taking the headlight apart...which btw isn't that hard, but they won't send you replacement parts that's for sure. If you didn't use those headlights as a HID projector retrofit, then maybe just see if you can get a replacement headlight...or worst case buy a new set....in LED.
I have the LED ones which you really can't even see in daylight, but at night they look great. I have them wired seperatly and just have them turned off most of the time anyway.
