Hid lights issue

I made sure when I did my hid lights that I did it right. However sometimes when I pull my headlights switch they don't come on I turn the the switch off and on again then they come one. Why does this happen?

I had no problem with my 30000k hids. Hook it up to the battery accessory and make sure you have a good ground. And hook the 9007 adapter up, and make sure your ballast can't get wet at all. My friend got water on his and one went out.

+1 the relay kit keeps a constant power to the ballast eliminating spikes and drops in voltage that causes the ballast to fault.

Hope it isn't the ballast whatever things. Hope moisture or something small. Any ideas?

How you tell if the light bulbs are good?

I just think they might be done. They didn't turn on last night for a while. Then they came one, and now today they won't come on at all.

Sounds like the capacitor in the ballast is weak or the bulbs are going bad
