HID caused failed inspection

I took my truck to get inspected and failed bc I dont have high beam. When I go to turn on the high beams my lights turn off. I dont know muck about HIDs and was wondering if there is a kit that has high and low beams. If i were to get a new kit could i use the kit i have now in my fog lights. They were in the truck when i got it. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

I had HID that had hi beams. The blubs actually retracted back when you hit the high beams and it changed the light scatter to shoot further giving you a high beam. On another note i ditched my HID's because they were the biggest pain in the *** ever. Good luck with yours.

Morimotos have High beams built in and they actually work unlike most of the DDM and chinese kits out there. Look for my thread about Morimotos under general

What HID kit was that? That actually sounds pretty neat. I usually recommend people to stay away from the HID kits that are hi/low because HID bulbs need to warm up for a few seconds before being turned off, flicking them on/off/on is bad for them.

If the bulb actually retracts, to change the trajectory.... that's pretty cool. I'd look into a set of those then.
