what brand? i got a morimoto mini ds2 retro fit from TRS that had a faulty connection at the back of the bulb. Also i had an issue with DDM's kit, where if i flashed my brights it would cause one not to light off. I would continue to flash the brights until it would finnaly kick off.

No experience with them, get a multimeter and check for voltage coming out of the ballast, if not then ballast are the culprit... if so then bulbs are the culprit
