Interesting but need more input. Please post what your actual setup is. Did you just install lows or lows and highs in a quad light? Bi-Xenon in a single light housing with projectors? Has this been working and now does not? Both sides act the same?

The more you can tell us the better the response.

First off i guess. Has this ever worked or was it just installed. They did provide a harness that you then attached to the main harness for connection to the ballasts and lights? I found that you could install the input to the ballast on my ballasts either way. So one way it worked and the other it did not. I seem to remember a similar symptom when i connected one side backward.

Also, please remember. We all like to help. But we need as much info as you can provide because we can not just look at it from here. So our response is only as good as the data provided can produce.

the hid conversion kit did come with a wiring harness that was color coded to match to the one it is suppose to connect to .also each connector on wiring harness is shaped different to eliminate connecting to wrong wires. also this hid conversion kit has just been installed and it started to flicker from the begining.

Default *new, need help with 11 ram1500

I installed a 35w 12000k kensun hid kit to my ram with capacitor. Headlights seemed to be work fine for a day. Next day lights seem to be flickering and then shutting off and staying off. If anyone could help that would be great.
