HID sometimes shuts off
 
I've noticed my drivers side HID sometimes goes out. I've checked the wiring, replaced the bulb and it still sometimes happens. I'll shut the HIDs off, wait a few miutes turn them back on and both bulbs will turn on.

Anyone have any suggestions on what to look at? Could the ballast be going bad?

I have a similar problem, mine arrived yesterday so i installed them, one flickered then turned off, swapped them and it worked again.. when i was driving at night i decided to turn the fogs on to check them out in pitch dark and only one worked.
I think it might be the ballast.

Maybe it's the relay...swap the relay with the one on the other side..

It may be something with having the fogs on too, last night I had the lows on for a while no problem, then decided to turn the fogs on too and had a problem a little while later. turned everything off and then just had the lows on for 1.5hrs or so of driving and no problem...

does each ballast have it's own relay?
