HID PROBLEMS - March 21, 2010, 10:19 AM

Hey everyone, I have been trying to tinker with my wiring all day, clueless as to what I am doing, hoping that maybe my pluging and unpluging connections I will some how get my shit to work.

After the install my HID (last august) would flicker on and off and then just stopped working altogether (you can thank ram cycles for the wonderful shit hole install)

I unplugged some stuff and some look corroded, could this be the issue?

I have checked fuse they are all good, unless I am missing something that not uner my seat, any suggestions, or anyone wanna come to reston and peep it for me?

tink, tink bada bink, who dont like da pink??

Corroded connection could definitely be the problem. I would go and check every connection making sure they are all clean and tight. check the ground wire also. I do not know much about HIDs but it sounds like a connection problem to me.

I have done many HID Installs.. I would come check it out for ya. If the bike taken apart so I can really get into it. Lose and corroses connections could be the problem. Check your PM, im sending my number over so you can hit me up and let me know if you still need the help No guarentees, but I will take a loks and redo the connections to see if it works out... However, but it could be the ballasts, and if thats the case you will need to replace it.
