mine dont they work great and will last longer than regular bulbs.... but back to the question do u have automatic head lights if u do turn ur lights on manualy and u shouldnt have that problem... if u do look at ur ballast and bulbs make sure they are conected and sealed up

all you need is a relay harness and 2 capacitors from radioshack and that will solve any HID kit's problems....."Assumptions are the mother of all F***-ups.

i would say do like the guy a few posts above me said. wire up a relay, just to boost the 12v. if that doesnt work, i would say you have a bad balast...
