Okay so now it started to do it almost every time. I cleaned the battery terminals, still does it. So i unplugged my chip and now everything works. What the heck could be the problem??????

So from what i am reading is that i should hook up a relay to my HID's and connect them to the passenger side battery. Is this true??

relay wont help. its the insulation on your chip wire that is the problem. its not keeping the interference out of your chip thus causing it to go haywire
