    the ballast is probably bad. Its not rare to hear that about HID's. Try turn them on/off a few times and maybe thatll get it going. If it doesnt, get a new one.

    Not much......college student using the GI Bill to survive.
    It sounds like that bulb's busted or you could have one faulty ballast which could have burnt out the bulb. Either way contact who ever you bought the kit from and ask for a new one.

    wait. just read it again. LOL. Maybe a bad bulb. You tried swapping balasts right? And the problem didnt follow the ballast?

    it has to be the bulb, thats the only option at this point. Both ballasts are producing/transfering power as noted by your switch. So the problem has to be after the ballast. Just get a new bulb.
