Dash lights go out when headlights turn on.

I have recently been having some issues when I turn my headlights on. The headlights and the dash go dark for a second or two, then turn on.
Im afraid one day, they won't turn back on.
Is this a sign of a weak battery, or are the halogen to xenon conversion kit form e90 andy messing up my car?

Thanks,

could be a incompatible or incorrect ballast, since HID requires much larger amount of current to operate, could be the ballast is taking a bit of time to charge up and during that brief second, the dash light do not get enough current to lid up?

I ask the questions you're afraid to ask.

Return it to stock to see if the problem goes away (it will.) You can then contact the light manufacturer and ask them how to fix it - good luck with that.
