I have 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 and the same problem! I was trying to install this kit with more relays... with resistors... and nothing! It doesnt work on low beam, and on high beam bulbs jumps up-down...
Does anybody solve the problem? May be you've got some ideas or instructions?
I've heard, about it's possible to solve thi problem, by turning off lamp out function in car's brains... ?

Default HID problem

Hi! I'm new here. I have the same problem with my HID. I bought my HID from a local electronic store which are the xenon hid kit. I bought the Bi-xenon kit (Hi/ Low bulb). The kit comes with a relay but some how it keeps flickering and I also tried a capacitor which is 1000uf 35v and it still flicker. The f***n hid are really pissin me off. I really need help. Any suggestions.

By the way i have a 2005 Dodge Ram.

Chris - welcome....first - do a search for HIDs. second - don't dig up threads that were started over two and a half years ago.

There are tons of threads on here about what to do. You have to wire in some 8ohm 20watt resistors....check the search - it is your friend.

Agreed, or get the 6ohm 50watt resistors off ebay and use them. Ive got pics in my sig link on how they are wired.

Ok, on my headlight plugs there are three wires. There is a blue, white and brown. The blue and white are the high beam and low beam wires while the brown is the common or ground.

Take one resistor and connect it to the blue wire. Take the other end of the same resistor and connect it to the brown wire.

Take another resistor and connect it to the white wire. Take the other end of the same resistor and connect it to the brown wire.

Hey outlaw,thanks for the info, but how exactly did you wire in that relay? I have an 04 quad cab and i bought a set of JS brand HID and they were fairly easy to install but i have the "lamp out" light in my dash on. Is that what the relay will fix?

Can anyone verify that this will work on an 08 dodge ram. I have tired my own capacitor and aftermarket ones for HIDs and NONE seem to have any effect. Also have the relay harness. Can someone verify that OHM resistors will work on this before I splice into wires. thanks guys, Any input would help.

Check out this dedicated HID sticked thread

http://dodgeforum.com/forum/3rd-gen-...k-in-here.html

Almost everyone uses 50 watt 6 ohm load resistors off ebay for about $10 a pair shipped.

Thank you very much. I heard the same thing and Just bought them yesterday to try it out. I also bought a H13/9008 Extension harness so I don't have to touch or splice into the factory wiring. Seems like everything should work now. Thanks

Default Dont Buy Junk, Buy From Retrosolutions

I have tried several kits in my 2004 ram. nothing works like the kit from retro solutions. They will hook you up with the EXACT fit for your truck. It is guarenteed to work with a lifetime warranty at decent price. If you buy the cheap ebay kits you get what you pay for period. Call them up or look on their website. 5000k are the best temp imo. Extremely bright yet people wont be flashing you.

Buy what you want and spend whatever you want but all ballast are made in one of two places. China and Germany. Every harness ive ever bought were all the same also. Lifetime warranties are nice but are a selling gimmick IMO.

Get a bad bulb? Take it out and ship it out. Wait for it to be delivered. Wait for it to be tested and deemed faulty. Wait for new replacement to be sent and delivered. Same for a ballast or relay.

Ive been there and done it. Ive learned to buy an extra ballast or relay or bulbs for fractions of the cost off ebay and have the part in just a few days versus waiting 2+ weeks for a warranty replacement.

Todd at Retro is good. No debate in that. But an educated buyer is better than any seller.
