Flickering headlight

Postby tSse06 » Mon Nov 15, 2010 8:30 pm

I recently upgraded my HID headlight bulbs from 6k to 8k, now one side is flickering, not everytime but it flickers it's the right side. Haven't had that

happen when I had the 6k but now it's different with those 8k bulbs I installed.

Does anyone know how to fix this???

Swap the bulbs around and see if it happens on the other side.

Ballast might be on its way out

That happened to me too.
But I found out that my right side only flickers if I turn on my headlights before I start my engine but after I start that engine the hids lit up just fine!
If the headlight constantly flickers as it remains on then the ballast might be bad
