I installed another set of HID's the other day so now I have them in both the highs and lows...

Here's the problemo: the driver side low beam turned off while the rest stayed lit up,including the highs. I waited for 2 or 3 minutes to allow them to reset themselves and tried to turn them on again and NOTHING! everything turned on except the driver low beam.

I even tried swapping out with another bulb and wait for a few more minutes but still nothing!! I checked the connections(unplugged and replugged) and still nada!

Any suggestions?? Help me Por favor!! ;)

Swap the ballast to the other side. If now the other side won't light up, then it's the ballast
Thanks man! I'll give it a shot

So I tried plugging the hibeam into the ballast and it worked then I switched it to the other side and it worked...for both the low and high on the passenger side

I even tried interchanging ballasts and the low beam just won't light up anymore no natter which ballast I plug it into! This sucks!

Sounds like you blew a fuse somewhere then for that side if it works everywhere else. You should be using the HID wiring harness that connects directly to the battery. That'll take car e of the problem in the future.

I checked the fuse and they werent blown or anything..damn I need to figure sumthn out... I will be looking into that harness thing tho, I thought about it initially when I got the first kit but I was thinking the less wires the better! I understand that would help with the power issue ...I am gunna try and plug the original headlight back in and see where that gets me, hopefully the OEM bulb works cuz that should definitely tell me if there's a wiring problem or sumthn...don't ya think?

If they are xentecs than the ballast is bad i have seen and experienced many ballast failures and will not purchase them any more 5 kits bought 1 bad per kit. Beware.

But you said, I believe, that the "bad unit" worked when you swapped it to the other side....right? If that's the case, it's not the bulb or ballast. I think maybe I'm missunderstanding. It happens..lol.

which fuses did you check? there is a fuse box located on the passenger side under the hood and up against the firewall. There are separate fuses for driver side and passenger and they are 10A fuses that blow extremely easily with HIDs. This was my problem and it was an easy fix. Hope everything works out.
