So, I have had two sets of HID lights installed on my truck. The first set I had intermittent problems with them not turning off, or turning off by themselves. I've removed that set, chalking it up to either being a junk set, or a bad product to start off with.
I am now on my second set of HID lights trying to install them today, and ran into more problems. This is a entirely new kit, from a completely different company.
We spent about three hours troubleshooting this, and could not find any solution. As far as the headlights go it seemed like one headlight was on or the other. They started off both working just fine but after 5 or 10 flicks of the on off switch one would go out, then if you turned it on and off a few more times they both would be on, then the other would go out. after that, the driver side headlight went out, and would not come back on. We flipped the ballast to the other side, no change. We then flipped the actual hid bulb itself to the other side which made the other side go out thus leading us to believe that that bulb is now permanently damaged.
As far as the fog lights go, we are still stumped with that as well. The fog lights are hooked up just fine, but after turning them on or off a few times one side is consistently out. Sometimes it is the left, sometimes it is the right, there's no rhyme or reason for this. We left the shop with the driver side not working at all, we could not get it to turn back on. While driving home we turn the lights on and the drivers came on and the passenger would not come on. The upside to this, is that when you do turn them on, they both fire up but the one that is out turns off immediately.
This is the same issue we have had with the first kit, we thought it was a faulty kit, however this kit is doing it as well.
Could this be a problem with my truck? Or is there special part that is required for Ford vehicles? How is it that both kits are from different companies, with different parts altogether, are having similar issues? When I install my stock factory system, I have no issues and everything works perfect.
