HID bulb or Ballast?
I had one of my low 6k (left side)was running a lot brighter than the other like a high aimed down like a low. Then a day or 2 later it started strobing on me. I swapped bulbs with the other side and same thing (still the left was f*cked up) so it wasn't the bulb. So I swap ballst with the fog and everything was ok I know it's halloween and all but damn I felt like I was driving an 89 honda CRX So I get in the jeep today and get to work and notice the fog isn't working. You think it's the ballst? and can you change single ballst or do it in pairs like bulbs?

Ballast for sure. Just go over and check the wiring in case. Make sure there's no cuts in the wire. You never know until you check.

check both fuses on your harness. I recently had my pass side HID go out and after trouble shooting...found the fuse that was just before the battery on my relay harness bad. Mine was a 15 amp.

Re: HID bulb or Ballast?
Ill check that too Scott. I'll prob just change them both anyway even if they're good. It's like $2. for fuses so I'll know it's not them. I also swappes relays too. But I keep spare relays just incase. I don't want to be stuck anywhere w/o headlights cause of a relay you know.

Re: HID bulb or Ballast?
One of my bulbs stopped working, and one hid light stayed on even though the light switch was off. Ended up being the relay harness went bad. May wanna check dat too...

Re: HID bulb or Ballast?
Waiting for ballast to come from Tony but now I'm noticing the bulbs arent sitting snug for the lows. If I hold them up to the back of the housing the cut off and light pattern is much better. is there a way to tighten it?

Re: HID bulb or Ballast?
did you insert them properly and turn them to tighten them? i have no issues like that with mine
