Hids installed but get error. HELP

I just installed my HID kit on to my 2006 325i, install was a breeze. I know i installed them correctly, but sometimes one light flcikers or one light turns off, i have an error code on my dash for the low beams. When i have the car just powered on by the battery the lights work fine. But when I turn the engine on i get all of the problems. Anyone know what to do?

Check the ground for the lights. This happened to me when I had my civic one of the grounds for the kit wasn't secured properly and it was causing the flicker and sometimes the ballast didn't work.
