HID kit... They were flickering now they are stuck in hi beams any suggestions ?

When we were installing the ballasts we were using 2 wires and my lights started flickering ... Then we conected two wires which I'm guessing they r hi/lo beams and so they r stuck in hi beams but that's the only way we got them to work ... How to I get rid of that problem

My guess would be to change your fuse

Have they ever worked properly?
You've likely got a bad relay on the relay harness.

That might be your problem. Even though the Expedition might have the same plug, it still might be pinned differently. The sure way to find out is to put that kit back on the Expedition and see if it works then.

First and foremost problem is probably going to be the pin out and possibly the bulb type. If I were you I would contact an hid seller and ask if the kits for both those cars are the same. Make sure you have a compatible kit for your car...

How doesn't that make sense? If the kit you are using isn't designed for your car then there's a good chance it won't work. There's alot more involved in a light bulb than just 12 volts... Where you put the voltage wether it's a two filament bulb or not and how many amps either circuit draws... Be my guest to start hacking on your wires but beware when you start back feeding into your ecu you can fry something or keep blowing fuses... Get the right kit...
