Default Blinkers?

so here is a brain buster for you. after trying to get my HIDs to work i just gave up on it. and the other day my blinkers started acting up. i will push the turn signal shaft down and the right blinker will come on. and when i push it up nothing happens. but the weird thing is that i will flash my high beams a few time and that will fix it for a while. i checked the wires and didnt see any damage. could i of burned up the wires or computer by messing with the HIDS? or has anyone ever had this problem? thanks for your time

I'm going to go out on a different limb and say the multifinction switch because it's a multiplexed setup and they're known to fail after a while. It's probably got a resistor going bad inside.

You'd need to get the part from the dealer but installation is pretty easy.

Try and get a relay harness. Power the HIDs straight from the battery. This might help
