Default High beams cause HID projectors to turn off.

I bought headlights with a projector and a high beam. After instalation when switching to high beams the projectors go off. when switching back, the hid projectors take a while to come back on and warm up. Where can i get a harness to keep the hids on?

Default All was fine until 3 months after install

I've had a Kensun 8000k HID kit installed for about 6 months now. They've been perfect until a couple months ago when the passenger side would intermittently go off (noticeably when traction control would kick on) Since Kensun wasn't getting back to me in a timely manner and I had a spare harness laying around, I decided to swap it out in the event that was the issue - no go. Hooked up the passenger side to the drivers side, and the drivers to the passenger side - the issue remained as the passenger side (of the vehicle, not the headlamp assembly). All the testing was done with the truck turned off, but the headlight switch turned on (upon getting everything hooked up). By the end of it, I had stock bulbs in which wouldn't turn on on the passenger side. Figured I would make an appointment to get it checked out at the dealership, but low and behold it turned on upon actually starting the vehicle. My fault for thinking it would start without the vehicle running (although it should) - but I'm curious as to what I would need to get these working. The stock bulbs are garbage and I have yet to find a pair of halogens that are worth a ****. After all that rambling, I'm hoping someone has had a similar issue and knows of a fix. I'm hoping it's as simple as just getting a relay harness. Vehicle is a 2018 RAM 2500 Laramie diesel.

Swap harnesses of it follows the harness it's bad. Or your HID bulb could be failing. How do you like that HID kit? I am running OPT7 and I love them.

KenSun is going to send me a harness. (In my original post, I meant to say "ballast" rather than "harness"). Hoping that solves my issues.
