DDM hid kit flickering

I got the bulbs with the ballasts as well to prevent flickering, but it seems as if the bulbs are loose or something. When I hit a slight bump the one light ever so slightly flickers. I am not really sure if the lights actually flickering or just shaking slightly. I've played with them several times making sure they were tight but it's not doing anything. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks

Re: DDM hid kit flickering

unless the light is turning on and off, i would assume its just moving. I know mine shakes a little when I go over bumps. If you look at where the bulbs mount, its on a rubber thing so its not really stable. Its nothing major so I don't really mind it haha but if its turning on and off, then there might be something wrong maybe connections or power?

Re: DDM hid kit flickering

ya i guess its just the shaking but I went with ur advice and just got my windows tinted 20% all around... it looks awesome EXCEPT for the fact that there is still some little bubbles and streaks in the tint. it was applied yesterday at a limo place so they do it all the time. Im not sure if these things work themselves out or if I will have to go back or not? Do you happen to know lol

haha yea I'm contemplating on getting my fronts which are 35% right now redone with 20% haha The streaks and some bubbles should come out. Just give it a few days. I gave mine a week and most was gone. Still have a few really small bubbles but I heard a few here and there is normal.
