    problem with HIDs

    ok, let me see if i can explain this, i have a problem with my hids in my car, ok well when i start my car with the lights on, the right one seems to always go out, but the strange thig is , when the e brake is on, i can turn the lights on and off both of them work, when i put the e brake down they will stay on, with the switch on and off, so whaen i get in i start my car, i see the lights come on and the right one shuts off, then with the e brake still up i flip them on then off and put the e brake down and all the lights stay on. but will not shut off till i turn the switch off and put the e brake on, strange, also sometimes when i flash my high beamms the right one will go out, but i have seen them both go out, if any one can help, i would be very greatfull

    Time to start tracing all your wires for the HID system and make sure they are all plugged into the right places.
    No one will truely be free until nerd persecution ends.

    well first try to reinstall the kit
    make sure your day time running lights are disconnected
    look in to upgrading your fuses (20A)

    also some picture of your set up would be a great help

    check out this install tutorial: (its my car)
