    So here is the issue. I have the morrimoto mini d2s retrofit kit on my truck. Im running 35 watt 3five ballasts with the 4300k orsam bulbs. My driver's side light went out this morning and I checked the ballast (had one burn up on me a month ago) and it was good. The bulb appeared to be good as well. I then connected the bulb to the ballast outside the housing and turned it on and the light came on for a second and then went off. This kept happening. I have no idea what the issue is.

    The ballast on the drivers side is brand new, less then 2 weeks old. It is the replacement that came from trs. The bulbs are also new and were put in less then 2 weeks ago. Anyone have any ideas of what is wrong or on how to troubleshoot this issue?

    What does the bulb do when fitted to passenger side ballast?
