you can check the connection. maybe somewhere is loose...
or switch the two ballasts on each side to check whether the ballast or bulb is defective.....live by heart...

Had the same issues. I put a relay in so that the wire coming from the headlight switch only activated the relay, and the power for the hids, came directly from the battery. Also, run the ground wire back to the battery. Problem gone.

Ballast for sure
I have the same issue and coincidentally with the right side. If I cover the automatic light sensor when I start the truck or its dark outside the night comes on but slowly gets brighter. This is an old balast direct wired system that I moved out of my Astro with new bulbs. I figure because of the DRL the wattage may be lower and therefore the ballast doesn't always fire, but once it does, it stays lit. I will be just changing out the balast for a new one when I gte time it it should fix the issue. 55w kits would probably even be worse than my 35W kit.
Try covering the dash sensor when you start and see if it makes a difference, if it does then probably the right ballast is weak.

if ur original bulbs are labeled with 35w, just replace the defective ballast with 35w HID ballast considering the issue of compatibility...
