HID fog lights stop working

I installed some HIDs in the fogs. They stopped working!!! Last night i noticed that only the driver side worked. So this morning I went and checked the connections on the passenger side. Still nothing, but this time it started flickering. So i tried turning the switch on and off, now both sides dont work. Try installing a relay? I dont know where to go from here now. So any input would be great.

Thanks!

I had the same problem before and reconnecting the ground fixed mine. You may also want to check the positive connection also!

Thanks for the quick reply. Are you talking about the ground from the kit into the factory connector? Tried that. Went and checked the fuse and it was blown changed that still nada. Now only the driver side work, still getting a buzzing and flickering on the pass. side.

Dang, my only other guess would be to check the wiring harness that came with the kit. Maybe a loose wire!

Went to the DDM website for some help. They suggested switching bulbs and ballast. So i did that and the bulb still works on the left side, still nothing on the right side. A few trys later it blew the fuse. Replace the fuse blew another. So i said screw it and put in the stock bulbs. So yeah sounds like its a bad ballast.
