Question about 2005 Chevrolet Silverado
I have a 05 silverado and have added on fog lights. Originally the kit had halogen bulbs in it and worked fine. Next I installed HID lamps for the fogs and they are not working. Seems like the relay for the lamps is switching off when I try to turn them on. Already replaced the 30 Amp relay with a 50 amp and still no luck!!!!
I would say that this person bought true HID bulbs only (Some HID BULBS are a direct fit IN A LOT OF FOGLAMP BULBS)
So they think they are getting a "Deal", as they are just paying for & getting just HID Bulbs & not the entire HID Kit so there is NO wiring and MORE IMPORTANTLY, they are not getting the matching Ballasts. The original person above hopefully BY NOW (The Original Post was over a year ago) This is both the buyers AND MORE AT FAULT here in my opinion, is the original SELLER IS AT FAULT, as they should have inquired if they are just needing replacement HID Bulbs, PLUS THEY ALSO KNEW THAT 05 CHEVYS DID NOT HAVE HID'S FROM THE FACTORY & they SHOULD HAVE EXPLAINED to the original buyer, that they NEEDED THE WHOLE HID RETRO-FIT KIT, with EVERYTHING NEEDED, I Place a much smaller blame the buyer, only they saw the words "Replacement HID Bulbs & JUMPED ALL OVER IT & only knew that HIDS were brighter than standard halogen, due to the DRASTIC PRICE Difference in the cost of only the HID Bulbs & also saw the MUCH LARGER PRICE of the ENTIRE KIT. THE ORININAL SELLER SHOULD HAVE CAUGHT THIS IMMEDIATELY when this person ordered ONLY the HID BULBS & NOT THE WHOLE retro-fit kit, like I said, they knew that the HIDS were NOT ON 05' SILVERADOS FROM GM......................... Just my 2 cents worth.....

Did you get the ballast (HID starters) with the HID bulbs ?

Check your connections to the relay, sounds like something is breaking down under load
