Most likely the HID transformer is not producing the correct voltage to properly charge the HID bulb. 12 volts goes into the transformer, but a lot more comes out. The HID needs a lot of volts to run, hence the need for the abovementioned transformer. But, the transformers are REALLY expensive.

Test the hid kit outside of the vehicle with a 12V battery first.
Then try adding an hid relay harness to your hid installation.

Hello,I have a 2003 lincoln navigator, i replaced the drivers side low beam HID headlight and it is not lighting. the fuse is good. Have you heard of any problems with this particular situation


Check for voltage at the plug where it connects to lamp, if there's 12vdc, you probably have a bad connector plug. If no voltage present, trace back to fuse box. Switch similar relays around

Left headlight on Audi A3 only works when it wants to. I've tried replacing the bulb, but it's still giving me problems.


If the vehicle is equipped with HID lighting, you could have a ballast problem to the light. If they are regular type headlights the connector to the bulb could be causing a problem with a ground or power supply

How do I get the low beams to run automatically whenever driving instead of flickering?




if you did it yourself and did not use factory lights or ballast then it could be a voltage detection problem. If you did use factory parts then the headlight switch may have failed by coincidence. also check connections at HL plugs and or switch. ???????????

Replaced drivers side bulb hih intensity,bulb comes on flickers then goes out what else should i replace


Doesn't sound like the light is the problem. This can be the ballast, aka transformer. Try to interchange the other headlight and see if it duplicates the problem before buying a HID bulb.

How do i wire up hid headlights on 2005 mazda 3


To wire up an HID kit on the low beams of your Mazda 3 2005, you will need 3-4 things:
1- HID kit (bulbs and ballasts)
2- HID relay (connects your hid kit to your battery)
3- 4700uF capacitor (solves DRL flickering issue)
4- H7 hid bulb adaptor (you can also use the rubber piece that holds the bulb wires as a spacer)


Wiring diagram:
http://www.carsets.co.uk/upload/temp/images/hid-light-installation-photo-display.jpg

Tips on How to wire up:
1. HID bulb's amp wires connects with the ballast's amp wires. (There's only one way to connect them.)
2. The positive and the negative spade connectors from the hid relay connect with your vehicle's low beam connector, closest to your battery: the driver side. The passenger side low beam connector is not used and should be insulated. You can use electric tape.)
3. Each ballast is connected to one of the relay's clip connector, and it's grounded on each side to your vehicle's body. (One connector for each ballast, one for each side. You can use the screw for the body as a ground.)
4. The red wire(with the inline fuse) in the relay connects to your battery's positive terminal.
5. The capacitor sits on the relay switch. (Google for how to wire the capacitor onto the hid relay switch.) dynoxg image
6. The halogen bulb sits on an adapter. You can safely remove them from each other, and use an H7 hid adapter instead.

I have an 06 pt cruiser and my lowbeams will not work. I have changed bulbs and I have checked all the fuses. I tried to install a H.I.D kit when the lights started flickering then went out. Please help.


this sounds like a bad head light switch, you have replaced the bulbs and all fuses are good then i would say try the headlight switch. there is testing you can do to make sure thats the problem but you will need a test light and also a assume the highbeams work. this is a common problem when the headlights start to flicker its due to a switch most times, if was just one light then i would say to check the wiring to light but as its both then i would start with a new or used headlight switch.good day

How do I remove halogen low beam head light to replace it?


Removal & Installation To Remove:
WARNING
The halogen fog light bulb contains gas under pressure. The bulb may shatter if the glass envelope is scratched or if the bulb is dropped. Handle the bulb only by its base. Avoid touching the glass envelope.

Removing the bulb for an extended period of time may affect headlight bulb performance. Contaminants may enter the headlight assembly where they can settle on the lens and reflector. Never turn on the headlights with the bulb removed.
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section. NOTE: Make sure that the headlight switch and the ignition switch are in the OFF position.
  2. Remove the pin-type retainers, screws and the air deflector from the radiator.
  3. Remove the three bolts and the headlight assembly.
  4. Disconnect the electrical connector.
  5. Remove the cover from the rear of the headlight assembly.
  6. If equipped with HID, release the spring tabs to remove the low beam bulb, otherwise disconnect the electrical connector and remove the bulb.

2005 Lexus RX330 HID ballast replacement, passenger side headlight. What is the removal procedure please?


I have a 2005 Lexus Rx330 with HID AFS headlight. My passenger side light went out. I thought the bulb burnt out, so I bought a new bulb. After replacing the new bulb, it happened exactly like my old bulb. It light up lightly and then total black out. What's wrong with it? I thought the ballast burnt. I called Lexus dealer and asked for the new ballast/transformer. Surprised me, they don't know what is it. They told me they only know the wiring harness and the socket, but not the ballast ??????? Could you tell me what do I need to replace?

Thanks,
