Unfortunately, based on attack patterns we have seen in recent years, we believe it is no longer safe to browse to a malicious, untrusted WebDAV server in the Internet Zone and double-click on anytype of files. Attackers are clever, substituting dangerous file icons with safe, trusted file icons. They have even recently begun obfuscating the filename based on character encoding tricks (such as right-to-left character encoding). Their goal is to entice unsuspecting users into double-clicking on a malicious executable. With or without this new remote vector to the DLL Preloading issue, it's very hard to make a trust decision given the amount of control an attacker has over the malicious WebDAV server browsing experience. We recommend users only double-click on file icons from WebDAV shares known to be trusted, safe, and not under the control of a malicious attacker. WHAT ARE YOU REFERING TO WILL THIS HELP YOU OR DO YOU NEED SOMETHING ELSE

You don't mention what type vehicle your working on, but I assume it has HID lighting. Have you gotten a good ballast? Cheapest fix would be to find a similar car in salvage yard and swap parts until you find the issue. Then buy new parts.

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 installed a High beam hid kit and read online that they needed a resistor in that year to trick the computer. after installing the kit and the resistors to the high beams pos and neg it still flashes...


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.

I installed HID headlights and fog lights about 2 months ago and the passanger side went out. i took the drivers side bulb and put it into the passanger side to see if the bulb or the ballast was bad and...


The headlights run through a relay (#46) through the BCM. If the relay were bad (very common and has a recall) both lights would not work. Sooo, I'm thinking check the wiring and pigtail that goes to the bulb. People that use Silverstar halogeon bulbs will burn that wire and or the connector. Make sure these are sound, check for power at the connector too.
