Don't buy a voltage stabilizer, they are snake oil. Anything automotive is designed to run to much higher voltages than just 12v. Regulations require that they survive a 24V double battery jump start from a tow truck. You have a bad ballast or bulb. Switch the bulbs from one side to the other and see what happens. If the bulb is bad then the bad side will switch if the ballast is bad it will still be on the same side. then contact the seller of the HID kit and tell them you have a bad bulb/ballast.
