Just installed hid into 2006 ford escape limited seperate low & high and had same issue light will come on then flicker and shut off,
solution 1
start vehicle with lights off then quickly turn to on not auto cause unless it is night they will reduce power for daytime running lights

solution 2
on drivers side there is a little light sensor put electrical tape over the sensor and it tricks the vehicle that it is night giving full power to the low beams

Check the wiring inside the headlight assy. I had a bad wire in a unit I installed. Once I tracked it down and repaired the wire all was fine.

How to install a HID kit in your car or truck


If you have seen those newer vehicles with the bright bluish headlights and want to install them on your car its a fairly simple installation and an awesome accessory to any vehicle here are the step by step instructions
1. remove your existing headlight bulb or if you have a seal beam headlight you have to buy an H4 housing specific to your vehicle
2. connect the hid ballast to its respective power source
3. connect the hib bulb to the igniters DO NOT TOUCH THE BULB GLASS
4. install the bulb into your stock or after-market light housing
5. mount the ballasts in a place under your hood where they wont heat up, like behind the housing
6. test the lights and make sure that they are both lit and solidly lit not "fluttering"

7.tape all connections lightly with electrical tape and close hood
NOTES *any bulbs that arent 6k bright white are 100% ILLEGAL

*a standard HID kit has only the low beam which is like in between hi and low

*if you want both beams get a BI-Xenon kit that has hi-low beams

I have a 2003 Saturn Ion 1 and bought the xenon hid 9007/HB5 kit. Hid low beams and halogen high beams no bi-xenon bulbs. The high beams work but lows do not. Neither ballast seems to be getting any power?...


The Saturn ion wasn't meant to have H.I.D.installed in them.
Since you want to install these and blind everyone, check what you grounded the ballast to, you probably don't have them grounded properly.

Headlights wont turn off automatically


I think you can try a hid light, because of xenon lamp no filament, so won't produce for filament broken and discard of the problem, the service life is much longer than halogen lamps, hid xenon lamp life is equivalent to the average car use cycle of the whole running time.

I don't know why you would install resistors inline for an HID kit, they should be 'plug and play'-you plug the connector for your halogen lights into the ballast input for the HID kit, then plug in the HID bulb harness/ bulb to the ballast output, install the bulb into the housing-done. Some people have installed relays to the lights because when the HID's 'light off' the use a lot of power until the bulbs warm up, then they actually consume less than a halogen bulb (usually 35 watts HID to 55 or more halogen). I have HID's in a number of cars and don't have relays hooked up on any, just 'plug and play' and I have no issues whatsoever.

yeah, shouldn't be that difficult. red-power, black-ground. unplug them then put everything back to normal, then try them to see if the originals(low beams, high beams, fog lights) work ok. if they do it's in the wiring. turn on your low beams and that's the wires that you need. just find the one that sends 12volts to the low beams and hook it up to red on HID's then hook the black(ground) from HID to chasis, not the ground wire from car and check to see if they work.

I replaced my main bulbs with hid xenon in my 98 range rover hse


First let me just explain something about putting HID bulbs in a reflector headlight, then I'll get to answering your question. High end cars use something called a projector with their HID bulbs and these projectors focus the light into patterns that won't blind other drivers with very perfect cutoffs (no light goes above a certain line). To retrofit a projector into your stock housing it takes a lot of work and careful measurements and thus a lot of time. But this is the only way to do a HID retrofit the right way.
Putting a HID kit into a reflector housing as you did, also makes light scatter everywhere, which creates many hotspots or high concentrations of light that make it much more difficult to see the road. Not only do HID kits in relfector housings make it more difficult to see, they are hugely illegal, and can/may get you pulled over and ticketed by a police officer. 
The best thing you could do insted of putting a HID kit in your relfector housing is to get higher wattage bulbs, OSRAM makes some great H4 overwattage bulbs. http://www.rallylights.com/SearchResult.aspx?CategoryID=6
If you purchase from rally lights (you need to purchase them in sets of two( I wouldn't go over 85/80 watt bulbs because it could melt your housing.)
Also make sure your headlights with stock bulbs are aligned correctly, most of the time this alone makes a huge difference as headlights droop over the years. 
If you are set on using your HID Kit illegally and blinding all other drivers on the road and willing to live with the risk of getting pulled over by any cop you run into. You will need to figure out how to trick ecu into thinking regular headlights are being used because its detecting the power being drawn for your HID lights to be a fault in the system that needs to be replaced. You can do this by wiring in a 55watt resistor to the circuit.
