    HIDs turn on Radio signal Lost ???

    ok this sounds absolutely rediculous...I installed my HIDs yesterday, disconnected the yellow plug behind the glove box.

    now, i have my radio on cruising around, it starts to get dark so i turn on my headlights. BAM! no radio signal. turn my lights off, and its back.

    So, what can be the issue here? i have never seen any thing like this in my 6 years of car experience

    HID's Raido

    I have a similar problem actually. When my HID's are on FM radio reception is reduced or interfered with. No effect on AM. I have stock radio 06 WRX.

    I have a similiar problem. i have the stock 05 radio. My radio plays its just alittle static. Yesterday my driver side ballast started making a loud noise, and the blub is strobing like crazy. i checked all my connections and they seem fine. I also checked to see if they had got water in them. i have to wait for my email back from the company.

    well im glad that im not the only one having this issue...Im not glad that its happening though


    anyway, the antenna wire or something like that must be close to the headlight power wire...thats all i can think of.
    i HATE static though, so i need a solution for this.
    any ideas???
