    I've had my HID kit for over a year now without any problems.

    Well...tonight in 45 degree raining weather it decided to either die or fart on me!

    One question for you guys.

    So I can see it flicker when I turn it on but it dies after about 3 seconds. I checked all the connections and ground. They seem to be fine.

    Is it the bulb or ballast?

    Thank you!

    Hakuna matada pal, just a suggestion...no need to repost, maybe a mod will move it for you. Might be more exposure over there to guys that know about hid systems. I know there are guys around here that could blow your mind with lighting knowledge, stuff I don't understand anyhow.
