    HIDs not working

    Just installed a set of HIDs in the gfs 2003 Protege and they don't seem to want to work all the time. Sometimes neither of them come on, sometimes they both do and sometimes only one or the other comes on. I find they usually work best if I try turning them on before I turn on the ignition, but again sometimes that doesn't always work. I have double checked all connections and they seem to be all good, good battery connection and good grounds. Anyone have any ideas?

    Shitty ballasts possibly... mine blew a fuse once, but that was because I was playing with them while they were on.

    From time to time (not too often, but more often than I'd like), mine only turns one headlight on, although that one headlight is brighter than two stock lights.

    Are they 55w or 35w systems?

    And are they "plug and play", or are you running them on a relay?

    I've done many of these, some "plug & play" systems dont nec work right and will work better if hardwired using a relay and using the factory harness to trip it on. Any question - PM me...

    They are a plug and play set up, and yes they do have they're own relays too. They're a high-low kit H4 6000k. Someone just told me to pull the daytime running light fuse. Opinions?
