The driver side ballast bit the dust this week.
It would come on for about 1-5 mins then eventually only for 10-20sec then finally just a flicker. today I tested the drivers side bulb on passenger side and it was fine. then I tested passenger side ballast on driver side and it was fine. then tested driver side ballast on passenger side and no go. this determined it was the ballast. one finial check I did was connect driver side ballast to driver side bulb which I know worked fine on passenger side. Then connected it directly to the battery and same thing just a flicker.
After checking out Retro-Solution's
warranty form I proceeded to see what shipping via Fedex or UPS would cost and it was $50-$75 to ship it to them. I decided that for that money I would just purchase a new ballast @$47 + shipping. after figuring it would take at least 2 weeks before getting the warranty replacement if they even do it and not say it isn't covered. As All I need is to get pulled over and get a ticket for a headlight being out.
I decided to just buy a new ballast kit with two new ballasts and keep the other one as a spare.
I had my retro-solution kit installed on my 2013 RAM for about 7 months. the problem arise just after having about a week of -40C temps including freezing rain. I do notice corrosion at the bottom of the pos. terminal of the ballast even with dielectric paste on the connector. so it may seem mine got moister in the ballast. that or it went bellow its operating temps which states -40C
