For all you lighting pros...
Ran into an issue installing my lights. Got half way done (passenger side fog and low beam) installing my 6k lights. Specifically bought from hidextra.com cause of some reviews shows no flickering of the lights..
For those with a 4th generation truck
4 lamp, I bought just low beam kit n fogs, no high beams...you remember seeing those two circular pieces that twist that seal the outside of the housing. I cut a small hole in the low beam circular cap to feed the wiring and the bulb from HID kit. I didn't have to cut, splice, etc it was all plug and play and easy to figure out (I'm not light savy at all)
Put it all back together to test out the lights and they work. However the fogs 9145 bulbs are perfect n bright. The low beams H11 are bright but they start flickering / dimming. They do have moments where no flickering is going on and its perfect then it goes back to it. THE WEIRD thing, is when my truck is completely off and I turn my lights on, all lights work fine. As soon as I turn on my truck the passenger side starts to flicker/dim. I made sure to mount the ballasts in the same spots as the driver side. So I start thinking to myself, maybe its a bad ballast? On the flip side, a bad ballast would probably not allow the HID to run properly while my truck is off right? Could it be a bulb? Same thing, why would it be perfect when the truck is off? I am lost and annoyed with this passenger side low beam light
What did I do wrong or what can I do to fix it?
Fast replies are appreciated
lol I am on shift tomorrow at the fire dept and would love for my lights to run good before I gotta be gone for 24 hours.
