HID Kit for the 2009 tacoma

A friend of mine who works in the industry told me something about when installing an HID kit into an 09 that there are some flicker problems and the lights may shut off. He said it has something to do with the computer and what not.

He mentioned he knows a way to wire up an anti-flicker "mechanism" so that the lights do not go off.

Does anyone know about this or if this is true?

Thanks!

It is most likely the HID kit. I have the same problem on my 05 when I installed the Hi/Lo HID kit. One light would flicker randomly, checked the connections, even warrantied the bulb and ballast, which cured the problem. But since then I have changed to a different HID kit where it does not need to "warm" up to temp. As soon as you turn them on, it's at the correct temp/kelvin the lights are supposed to be at
