just driver's side and stays that way the whole time. i tried turning the lights on and off a bunch of times with out any change. these are the original bulbs that came with the jeep.

Re: hid changed color the oem bulbs have a reputation of not lasting? just talked to a jeep parts guy and was told he rarely sells them because they are supposed to last a long time. he quoted me $166 per bulb. don't know what was included.

now the bulb fires up(still not the normal color) for a few seconds then starts to flicker for 20-30 secs and then dies. if i turn the lights on and off quick the light fires up, flickers immediately for a couple of secs then dies. any suggestions? hate to blow money if its not the bulb. also are the aftermarket bulbs any better other than the lower price?

Re: hid changed color
update: the oem bulb was flickering on and off and then stayed off because the bulb was going bad. installed new bulbs and all is well.
