I just finally installed my 8k hid lows/fogs & guess what happend.......
 
Every friggin time I put on my lights and fogs I always have one or two light that don't come on...........WTF

I was told to put some Dielectric on the sockets by the dude that sold'em to me.......these hids dont have a ground to them just two ballasts, I guess they might be the plug and play type........what do i do???:confused:

Do you have relays hooked up to them?

You have to purchase relays. Where did you buy them from?

explain what exactly you installed for starters that way we can help you a little more. Most HID kits are plug and play already.. Most people use a relay wire harness that pulls the power for the from the battery instead of the stock wiring (saftey really)

Your saying you just have bulbs and ballasts connected straight to the headlamp harness or what?

Uhhh ok now you need Relays. You can get some from Tony. He's our Vendor. In order for your lights to stay on properly you need the relays.

Hold up let me find it.

OK you need this. It's real simple. Connect the wires. The Positive wire should go to the Positive side of the battery. For the ground you have to ground it to the body. Make sure you sand that part down so it's bare metal. Matt has a write up on it.
