HID probs!

So I'm trying to install some HID's, but when I turn them on I get a warning on my dash and they just flicker the whole time.

Is there anything to do?

I assume that you probably bought cheap one from eBay or something.

Those cheap light bulbs may cause the warning signal.

I suggest you buy another set from forum sponsors.

And regardless of what HID setup you buy - you will need the Inline Capacitors to eliminate the problems you are seeing...

I know for sure Alex @ Alpine has them - they are included with all his sets.

If you do a search on the forum, you will find a couple threads detailing what these are and why they are needed.
