    If I switch them on before start up they come on but if the engine is already running then they don't want to work ?
    35w system with ballasts, D2S bulbs, 2xRelays, 2x50w resistors
    Any idea's would be greatly appreciated ?

    Sounds like the resistors or the harness has failed causing the bulb out warnings stopping the car from igniting the ballasts, im guessing they are aftermarket hids?

    Thanks for your help.
    I'm thinking of getting rid of the resistors and fitting new error warning cancellers ?
