I fitted two HID kits today, one 55W kit for the main beams, and another 55W kit for the dipped beams. I installed a wiring harness for each kit. Everything was working well, all 4 bulbs light up correctly (and looked fantastic).... untill I started to play about with the 'control box' of the relay for the main beams. I was trying to find a suitable place to bolt it or attach it to, the next time I turned the main beams on they wouldnt turn on !
I swapped the control boxes over from one relay to the other and the dipped beams still worked, so that rules out a fault with the main beam control box. (when i say control box I dont mean the ballasts, I mean the small box on the relay which senses when the lamps are to turn on or not and gives power to the ballasts accordingly)
I swapped the connectors over for the main beam bulbs so it connected to the relay + ballasts for the dipped beams, and the bulbs fired up perfectly. So thats the relay and the bulbs ruled out as the problem...
...the only thing I can think of now is the ballasts. but ive no idea how they could suddenly stop working ! especially not both at the same time
I will have to test the ballasts tomorrow in the daylight, which is long as it will be my 4/5th time removing the headlamps !
In the meantime can anyone think of something I might have missed//overlooked ??
many thanks, hope I havnt confused you all
