Still experiencing flickering
 
I bought the relay for my HID's and still have a flicker. It sometimes gets so bad that even my headlights will flicker along with all interior lights.

The main flicker i usually get is in my radio. The lights dim and when i use the steering column switch to turn on the interior lights, all that happens is the radio become bright again and no interior lights come on (unless I were to open the doors.)

Whaty could be the problem?? I have a subwoofer, but I have checked and even moved the ground to a spot where other things were grounded, and I still have the flickering!!! AHHHH
when the flicker occurs, the stereo system sounds just fine...

What can I do? Thoughts? Ideas?

Bad ballast and a bad multiple-function switch maybe. It's a gamble with some HID kits. I've experienced in the past when HID kits first appeared.

How is the Fastman TB? Do you like it? Better gas mileage? Can I have pros and cons, if any?

Yeah, bad ballast for the headlight flicker and maybe a bad multi-function switch for the interior flicker.

I had the same problems at one point. They are most likely not related. For the interior I removed my multifunction switch and then put it back on ensuring connections and fitment are tight. Haven't had a flicker since. If that doesn't work it could be your ignition switch.
