I might have some ballasts for sale. I just ordered a new set of hids b/c one of my bulbs went out. Theyve been sitting for a while, so when my new ones get here, im gonna test the old ballasts then sell them.

did you double check all your connections? make sure the ballasts arnt getting bumped around a good solid mount, and check your relay and make sure it's good and the fuse clips make sure they didnt get loose and slip through the fuse holder and loose contact with the fuse..

the simplest solution should be checked first before jumping to everything else. Start with the fuses if you have inline fuses on the harnesses. Then the headlight fuse in the car on the side that flickers. If those two aren't the culprit, check the wiring connection, that is if they are plugged in correctly, and ALSO if the wires are fried out and gunked up so the harness isnt working properly. Typical plug and play kits without relay harness problem is the OEM harness gets fried and the plug gets messed up. Then maybe after all that, finally you can blame it on the ballast being broken with a messed up voltage regulator or zener diode or something. Do all those checks first before getting a new ballast, or if you are lazy and balling, buy a new set
