Slammed_2.0 Seems like the Magnet for the High beam is using more amperage to engage the Hi beam soleoid. Try using a Relay kit and see if this cause the issue to go away.

arjay219 Did you ever try swapping the plugs from ballast to bulb and vice versa? Had a similar setup on my last car and that worked. I never blew a fuse though so this may not be applicable/helpful.

A7xschecter6661 Is it a real bi-xenon kit or no?

Some kits are hid low and halogen high which suck ass

Before I did my retrofit I had a $75 set that comes with dual beam bulbs. There weren't 2 hid bulbs or anything, its one hid capsule on a magnetic plate. When you hit high beam the magnet engages and sucks the bulb into the socket a little (like an adjusting flashlight) and focuses the beam and aims it a little higher.



Anyways was it ever working? Was it direct plug and play?

DarderSauce Have you tried using more emoticons when you ask questions? I hear that helps fix electrical problems.

No I'm not, that is what I was woundering, because I blow the fuse every time, if I install the facktory set back everything works fine, when I install the hid. everything works also ecept the brights

glad you found your problem..

it never worked for the start. second set

again second set.. So no has a fuse system I gather from the responses, and everyone seams to just buy the single cheaper one filament hids, and never use there brights anymore? am I missing something here. Maybe I will just put my factory system back in.
