    Gremlyn's Garage sells accessory harnesses that stop the flickering of HID's.

    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.....

    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...

    hids are great dont get me wrong. but they are more trouble than what they are worth. ive had two of hids. in both the balast go out. which i way i said screw and went and got me the nokya bulbs. there simple and easy. they get you to hid at 7000k and there blue and all. and only 30 bucks where im at.
