Can someone tell me where to start.
My headlights are not working(HID) but the running lights work?
Is there a fuse for the headlights?and if so wouldnt the running lights not work,too. I see one for the fogs,but they work.

Thanks Dan

you might pull a bulb and look at them, it happened to an old girlfriends car. I looked at it, both bulbs were toast. Unbelievable.

Yours had to work at some point no?

Thanks

just humor yourself and pull one of the lamp plugs and put a meter on it and see if you're getting 12 volts, and click from low beam to high beam too. Are you sure parking lights and headlights are same fuse?

i feel your pain my man.. :ugh

Ps. I have an '05 i'm about to go out and look at the fuses on it

Grounds - I made my own on the core support.

Don't swap 'em out! They are under warranty right? Intermittent problems are fun, but get with your supplier and see what they have to say.

If you had a lamp out then you likely have a bad ground or some other issue with the resistors...

Then there is a resistance issue. Do you have resistors in line with your harness? If not you need some. If you do then I would check the connections and grounds.

yes,I have resistors with the harness.
Should I ground the ballast directly to the battery?

You shouldn't have to...

Funny thing, I get up this morning and go to warm up the truck... no highs and only one low... guess who else needs to do some troubleshooting!

I'm going to be hooking mine up in the next few days and you guys are concerning me :ugh

Can you ground multiple grounds in the same spot? My resistors come in a pair which have 2 grounds for either side, plus the ballast ground

Hmmm,now I'm confussed...;)...my resisters are not grounded,unless its threw the wiring harness that was supplied with the HIDs...buy I had to ground the ballast....sorry..I know nothing about eletrical..:rck::rck::secret2:

On on a side note: I have had them on over a year with little problems.I had a Lamp Out light on once,so I do the ground wire off and scratched up the surface and re installed and everything was fine until now.
Also,I had to replace the IPM not to long ago,but I was told it had nothing to do with the HIDs....

The resistors are not grounded, they go from between the pos and neg in the harness.
