Someone has to know how to fix this problem I'm having with my HID's. I have an '04 Ram QC and recently purchased a bi-xenon HID kit. Well when I installed it the lights would simply blink on for two seconds, off for two seconds, and repeat until I got pissed enough to turn them off. Well I followed some directions regarding wiring in two capacitors (one from high beam power to ground, and one from low beam power to ground) and it still isn't working. Now the headlights, in addition to the blinking, are also going from high to low (or moving the solenoid.) Please look at the video below and someone PLEASE help!!!
how much did you pay for those, because i got a set on ebay for 200.00, i plugged them in, and the relay would click on and off, i never was able to get them to work after lots and lots of time and pissed off nights,after i was donemessing with them i was told to get the real HID kit witch costs 1200.00, i have them installed on my truck now, with no problems from the start, if they are the cheap ones good luck, because my buddy has my set that i bought off ebay, and has tried all sorts of things to get them to work and has had no luck what so ever, and i was unable to get my money back in the end so hopfully you will have better luck then i did!!!
But since yours turn on then off try replacing the relay,or jumping past the relaythats all i could think of is the rely is clicking on and off. Hope that helps!!!
Do a search for HID blink or HID problem, there's a fix, a bunch of people have had this problem, actually I think EVERYONE that got HID's from eBay has had it, but there is a way to get them to work, don't worry yet...
JC Plowing...I don't think I'll EVER spend 1200 on HIDs, seems kind of crazy.
bwhite757...that's the fix I tried, with the capacitors, I'm about to go outside and try some resistors....lets keep our fingers crossed that I don't set something on fire...
I recall reading about this blink problem and a fix for it here. As I remember, it has to do with wiring the marker lights in with the headlights so the system reads the correct resistance or amperage draw. I'll see if I can dig it up.
EDIT: Here's the post I was thinking about. It makes sense to me that it would solve this problem.
