Installed P90's, HID's dont work.

I just finished installing a set of P90s in my car. When I put the key in the on position, everything works perfectly, angel eyes, and the hid's work. When I start the car, my car has the headlight error, and the HID's will cut off, and stay off, there may be a slight flicker. Does anyone have a clue as to what this is?

The ballasts require capacitors. These alone are no guarantee all will be well. There are some kits on the market that have seperate ignitors, but still need wiring through a relay. The E9X series seem to be hyper sensitive to electrical alteration, more than the E46 ever was.

I have tried a few HID kits over here, and all throw up problems, awaiting delivery of another now to test suppliers claims.

The whole package was from Jlevi, aren't these supposed to be plug and play without an error. Maybe I just assumed that.
