mine started doing that 2 weeks ago for a couple of days. Would flicker and shut off just like yours. One day it stopped working and figured that the ballast fried. Tested the bulb and ballast and sure enough it was a gonner. Good thing it was a ebay deal tho.

I think my bulb or whatever you called is done...I switched the bulbs to the opposite of each other and of course, same bulb is having the issue...but to be honest my hids flicker once in a while...

I need quality...these lasted almost three years, but I dunno where to go now...

what should I go for?

^^ His ballasts will cost you an arm and leg IMO.

Buy a new kit form him?? yes.

If not hit up ebay and get replacement ballasts will last just fine and are way chaper.

It's up to you but if i was just buying ballasts, well i would go to ebay.

This is also gods way of telling you to get 6000k.
