call up any car audio shop. A lot of them handle HIDs and might be able to answer you.2010 Equinox LT

easiest thing would be to switch ballasts. if the problem switches sides it is the ballast. if it stays the same probably the bulb. ddm tuning has great prices. just bought a few sets of HIDs. bulbs are 15 for a pair. I think ballasts were a like 25 but you can get new ballasts and lights for 30 or 40 depending on if you get 35 or 55w ballasts. the lights will all be rated to 60w. Since you have had them for 2 years I wouldnt suspect needing a relay or anything.David
