    Hello everybody! My bother just fitted a HID kit on his car and the nearside light is flickering constantly but the offside light is fine. When he switches the car off but leaves the headlights on the flickering stops. Also he mentioned when he drives it for a long period of time the flickering stops but he aint sure. Just wondering what it could be? Thanks!

    Not yet...He asked me to find out what everyone on the forum suggests before he touches anything. Would you recommend he switches them around? Thanks

    Before swapping the units over check for any loose connections. If still no joy then like StK suggests swap the ballasts. By doing so it will show if there is a faulty unit or indicate a problem with the wiring on the one side
