Hi all,

Quick query? i fitted a HID headlight upgrade a couple of weeks ago and now i get a fuzzy radio reception when driving with the headlights on, do the ballasts need to be earthed? or could there be another problems..

Thanks in advance for any help

one side i have cable tied it to the chassis and the other side cable tied it to a air duct, it was only done temporarily, but as it was working fine i have left it

Does it do it with a CD playing?If not then i would suggest an interferance problem from the ballast's as these constantly arc to produce the light and therefore cause earth/back EMF problems.Do the ballasts have seperate earths?
Stick some pics up of where they are mounted and the connections.

ok sorry for the delay, (computer hicup)

Update, the fuzzy radio is not down to the HID upgrade, at the same time as i installed the HID, i also changed the angle eye bulbs for the 6000k upgrade option.
i only need to use the side lights for the radio to start getting a fuzzy reception, i dont really want to put the standard bulbs back in because the upgrades look so nice,

Anything i can do??
