HID problem?

okay so here's the thing.. i have a bi-xenon hid kit from twiggy that came off my buddys 05 truck 2 days ago, which were working perfectly fine. we hooked everything up to my truch (which is an 02) and when we turned it on the lights started flashing like they were my hazard lights or something they turned on and off a couple times then i just turned them off.

i plugged my halogen bulbs back in to make sure they still worked and they came on just fine no problems at all.

the other weird thing is we took the kit and hooked it up to another friend's 03 dodge to see if it would work and they did! they weren't flashing or anything just came on and stayed on.. so we just hooked the kit back up to my truck and they started flashing like before

idk what the hell is wrong cuz i mean my stock lights work fine, plugged the kit into my friend's truck everything worked fine, but when i hook it up to my truck the lights flash on and off??? i'm just at a complete loss

:h elp:

have the same problem man i just ordered a computer canceller kit. the problem is that the surge of power when you turn on your hids is to big so the computer throughs a flag saying hey there is to much power going to the bulb shut it down. so what the cancellers do is store energy first then starts the hids. but about the other trucks that it works on theres but not yours i just says all trucks are different. but ill get back on here like mid week to let you know how they work. and if you dont wanna wait to hear back the web site to get them is hidcountry.com computer warning cancellers.

thats what i was thinking was going on.. there was too much power and it was basically like tripping the breaker so to speak. so you're sure that's what the problem is and that's all i need to fix it? how much do those cancellers cost?

check ebay, i wish i knew how to insert links, but i'm not that savvy with the internet. type in HID capacitor and you should see plenty of options. there as cheap as 3.99(shipping from china) and as much as 45. i think i'm going with the 17.99 option out of florida. good luck.

check all connections for exposed wire. splice if needed.
assemble first, then install.
make sure your engine is RUNNING when you turn them on.
did you use the same ground locations that your buddy did?

that doesn't work let me know, i'll ask my HID guy.

yeah we assembled everything along the outside the truck, just hooked it up to a ground and tried it like that first. did the same thing on my buddy's truck that we tried the kit on and it worked fine on his truck, but they flashed when hooked up to my truck.

we didn't have the truck running though when we tried it on either truck..

yes, and your truck should be running while your HID's are on.

shoot, this is easy. The 2 orange things that are hooked back to back are the cancelers. check your connections.
