hid lights flickering

My car came with hid lights. While driving they flicker when I hit a bump and the driver side will go out sometimes. If I turn off the lights for a few seconds and turn them back on it comes back on. What's up with that?

can you tell what brand they are or wattage? are they justs an HID low beam, HID hi/lo beam, or HID low / Halogen hi?

could be a ballast issue, or may need an error eliminator to help regulate power

It's the wire that is connected next to your fuse box. It's loosing contact or breaking away. Same thing happened to me.

In this pic there is the fuse box under the hood. Where that red cable is going in that flap slides up that's where the positive cable is hooked on and a HID kit is wired there first make sure the wire isnt loose or breaking.
