Xenon Bulb Problem..

I installed some 8000k bulbs over the weekend and i installed them and turned the lights on each one worked fine, so i put everything back together and i went to turn on the car and the lights today and one didnt work. Then i turned the lights back off and back on and they both worked, i kept repeating this over a few minutes and the bulbs would keep fluttering and blinking and then either stay on, or go off. I went back in and tried tightening both sides and still did the same thing...

Could this have to do with the bulbs or what? Anyone ever have this problem who installed bulbs?

Where did you get your bulbs?
OR who is the manufacturer?

It probably is the 8000k bulbs because it only happens when you put them on.

try what natureboy said. If still does not work, then the bulbs must have problem. I believe it is still warranty.
