on the topic of flickering, when i go over tiny bumps on the road or even speed bumps,
my HIDs will flicker/shake...did i do something wrong on the install like a loose connection?
or is this normal as well ? it looks pretty cheap when that happens..
Normally output shouldn't be flickering. I am not sure what shake means though...
I would start from
If bulb sit ok? when bulb not sitting well,,even with stable output, look like flickering and of course not good for bulb, system.
and then, if it IS light flickering ( unstable output ) over bump
Check if both side have same problem. If it's only one side, try swapping bulb to see if it's caused by bulb or not first.
If it happens only over bump( by vibration/shock) , it's natural to think loose connection ( can be included inner circuit connections of ballst/ignitors in worst case...hope not!!)
[/quote]thanks for the reply!
by shake i mean, when the car shakes my lights shake as well (output) making it seem like the bulbs are loose in their socket (both)
how can i test if they sitting loose (as you mentioned) ? should they "click" into something and remain solid in place ?
even if they are in properly, any recommendations as to securing the holding more ?
