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

this is my second set..

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.
