I am hoping one of you have heard of this before because I am right out of ideas and there was nothing when I searched.

I installed an HID kit on my buddies Charger RT and everything worked with no issues when the ignition was off. As soon as we started the car the relay that is powering the kit started chattering like crazy. Kit was still working, but the sound coming from the relay is not right. Swapped the relay out of my kit, and the same thing happened. Any suggestions of how I can fix this. Is it a grounding issue??

What was used as the "signal" source?

This happened to me when I used the stock low beam harness as the signal... turns out the chattering is from the non-constant electrical current from the DRL surging into the relay

Thanks guys. I fixed the problem. It required a 50V Capacitor in the relay to stop the chatter. Everything works great now.
