So I've installed more than a handful of hid kits for friends, and finally installed mine a few weeks ago. I installed the 55w ddm with a wiring harness.

Now to my problem: The hids only turn on if the car is off, and then I start the car. If the car is already running, they turn on for about 1 second and quickly shut off. I don't have a clue as to what the issue could be. They work fine once they are on. No faulty ballasts or bulbs. What could I be overlooking?

Voltage irregularities maybe? Prelude does the same damn thing, but it also kills it if I switch on the high beams. Quick test though, unplug the relay harness and plug the hids directly into your h7 sockets and see what it does. It won't fry anything, iv been running my 55w harness for almost 2 years now, no problems. Give it a shot and hit us back

Thanks for the quick feedback, I'll try this sometime next week. I've got a busy weekend helping a friend move and going out of town. I'll update when I look more into it.
