Default CCFL Halo Dim then Bright?

When I start the Truck, one of the halos on my spyder headlights are very dim but after driving for a while it lights up? Does anyone know why this happens? Is it a bad bulb, bad ballast or just bad connection?

Sounds like the ballast or possible wiring issues. I would pull it and maybe re-wire it. If it is still doing it then it most likely is the ballast. good luck!

I have the same problem with mine... It seems to be weather related. Mine were fine until it started getting below zero out... The few days that it has been warmer this winter they work fine.

I redid all the wiring and that seemed to help I haven't had the problem since and we have gotten as low as 8F.

FYI to anyone buying sypder lights they were great getting back to me but as for warrantying anything there response was "return it to where you bought them from", even when I offered to buy new ballasts and halos.
