Welcome to putting HIDs in a housing designed for Halogens. Don't be surprised if your replacement lights do the same thing but hopefully not.
Also, most of the "plug and play" kits people buy these days do not use laser aligned bulbs or quartz glass. Example is the garbage DDM kits everyone seems to try to run. Not laser aligned, not quartz glass, zero quality control and not any brighter than a good halogen to boot. VVME and Kensun are the same way, as are all cheap kits. Really if you don't get a Morimoto kit or an OEM takeoff you might as well not even bother. Hopefully this is not another DDM kit...
edit: Great service from AM here no questions asked but would not be surprised if the replacement set does the same thing. IMO, vendors and manufacturers should put a big Not Designed for HID stamp on lights that are not specifically HID projectors and designed exclusively as such.

Just because I give you advice, doesn't mean I know more than you. Its just means I've done more stupid ****.
