Sorry for not being on lately, works been hell!

But these members are awesome and helped you I see, my right low beam bulb is acting funny now too, she's starting to flicker and be stubborn to come on.

I sucked up and bought a new retrosolutions digital hid kit. Like they say you get what you pay for.


My fogs are still working perfect, no worries on those puppies!

Hope you get it sorted out man

Hey Brother,
Just swapped out my 35W ballasts with a few 55W ballasts. Flickers gone they come on as soon as I turn them on.

I still have a new set on the way, might just run these until they go, well see.

I moved my ballasts to a new location and zip tied the hell out of them so they wouldnt move!

Hmmm... the passenger HID on my truck is the one that has acted up in the past. Coincidence?
I recall the passenger light wouldn't fire when I put in the first set of HIDs into my Dodge. I tried swapping the ballast AND bulb but the light still failed to light. Then I put the ballasts/bulbs back to their original location and NEITHER light would light up. It was at that point that my seller swapped my 35w (thin ballast) kit for the 50w (Thick Ballast) Digital kit, with ASIC. Both lights lit on the first try.

Lots of people here say you should avoid using the "thin" ballasts. Not sure.
I liked the look of the thin ballasts, but less room means less parts??

The last thing I want to do though is change out a ballast or bulb when it is minus 30 degrees outside. Yikes. Just thinking about it sends shivers up and down my spine. Plastic becomes very brittle at that temperature.
